Thanks Wolfgang, that works.
Next question to this: The printable area of the sheet is not the 
complete area, e.g. it has a not-printable margin of 10mm on the left, 
2mm right, and 5mm at the top and 5mm at the bottom. How to control 
these margins, s.t. the cards are only set in the printable area of the 
sheet? I tried with "topspace", "buttomspace" etc. in \setuplayout, but 
that does not work now.
