You love finding the perfect holiday gifts for your family and friends, but have you ever thought about printing your own custom holiday gift labels? Doing so makes your gifts unique, fun, and thoughtful by adding a personalized touch to your packages. The best part is that it’s cheap and easy to print custom gift labels for holiday gift-giving. Here’s how to do it.
Design your holiday gift labels
Start by creating your own custom gift label design using a free label template. Choose a die-cut label shape, then download a template to use in your favorite design software (PDF, AI, PSD, and InDesign files are available).
These templates do not contain design elements; instead, they serve as guidelines to help you fit your design within the label shape – complete with safe areas, cut lines, and bleed lines. They’re also prepared in the proper size and resolution, so all you have to do is create your custom holiday label artwork and go to print.
You can also customize professionally designed sticker templates to turn them into gift labels using PsPrint’s free online label design tool. Simply select a template, edit the text, and upload your own images for a custom creation you’ll be proud to place on your gifts.
Custom holiday gift label design ideas include:
- Funny photos, phrases, and illustrations
- Family and best friend photos
- Sentimental family phrases
- Holiday-themed artwork
- Anti-holiday-themed artwork
Choose your paper stock
You can choose from several gift label paper stock options, but gloss sticker paper is the best choice since it’s uncoated – which allows you to write on your labels – and features crack ‘n peel backing, which makes it easy to quickly apply your gift labels when you’re wrapping holiday gifts.
This type of label paper stock is white, so you can print any custom design with any color combination. It’s also one of the most affordable paper stocks, so you can print plenty of custom gift labels without breaking the bank.
Select your gift label printing options
You can print gift labels in any size from 2-inch by 2-inch to 11.75-inch by 17.5-inch – print small, traditional gift labels or go big and bold with oversized holiday labels!
After you’ve selected your gift label size, choose your quantity and printing/shipping turnaround times. If you need them fast, you can opt for one-day production and expedited shipping.
Finally, save money with discounted gift label printing. PsPrint, for example, often features 50 percent off specials, which means you could print 100 2-inch by 4-inch custom gift labels for less than $45.
