Do blackletter faces belong to one of the "standard" font families such as sans serif or serif or consitute a separate font family on their own.

I am little confused as to what exactly applies.

Dimitris,

They are on their own.

The same applies to script typefaces.

You are welcome, Dimitris.

So far, I am afraid you are out of luck with blackletter Windows fonts:

Slightly outdated, historical:

Up to Vista, by version, seemingly growing all the way:

We shall have to wait and see about 8.

What did you mean when you said to the OP, "I am afraid you are out of

luck with blackletter Windows fonts"?

Herb,

That blackletter fonts (like Fraktur fonts) are not among Windows system fonts.

Check out this link: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=extensionDetail&extid=1401018. It is a 10-card template in a 8.5 x 11 paper for Illustrator so you can simply layout the cards according to the template. And as long as your printer is also setup correctly, your business cards should be ready for print.
