Print Your Own Gift Tags
Posted by on
If you want to give your holiday gift packages a little pizzazz, how about printing your own homemade gift tags? Not only will they add a personalized touch, you can save money doing these on your own printer. You also have the ability to customize tags for each recipient on your gift list.
To begin you will need to purchase printer-sized card stock. This is a heavier weight paper that comes in many colors. Using MS Word, you can locate templates or if you don’t have Microsoft Office, you can search for templates online. The only limitation is your imagination!
Once you have selected the template, any image, and the text, you can run a test sheet on regular standard weight paper to verify that it looks as you expect it to. We also recommend printing a test on one sheet of card stock once you have your final design ready to be sure that it prints properly on the heavier paper.
After you’ve printed all your gift tags, cut them out and use a hole-punch so you can thread ribbon in order to attach it to the gift. You may also want to leave some without holes and attach them to gifts using double-sided tape.
Be sure that you have plenty of replacement ink cartridges on hand before you start to print. You’ll want to have an extra printer ink cartridge in every color so you don’t run out. After you’ve completed your project, you’ll have a special gift tag to adorn all your gifts.
