How to…Print your Favor Tags:
Let’s talk Printing. All favor tags print on size 8.5×11 paper. I recommend matte or thick glossy photo paper, but card stock also works. Here is a link for detailed paper recommendations. If you are printing the 2″ circle favor tags, each page will have 12 circles on it. If you are 3″ circular favor tags or the tag shaped favor tags, each page will have 6 tags. For other shaped favor tags, the number of items will vary. Favor tags can be printed at home from any normal home printer. Color variations may occur based on the printer, ink and paper combination you select. I recommend always printing on your printer’s “best” or “photo” setting for highest quality and ensure that your printer has adequate ink. Low ink levels can make colors appear dull.
If you do not want to print at home, files can be printed at any local print shop that prints PDF files. Places like OfficeMax, Staples, and FedEx are great options.) Printing options are also available here.
Assembly is super easy. Once the files are printed, cut out the tags along the edge of the design. or for even easier and cleaner edges, use a 2″Paper Punch. I usually use ribbon and a hole punch to attach favor tags to bags, boxes or gifts. You can also use hot glue for adhering directly to items. Favor tags can also be printed on adhesive paper to be used as a sticker. Here are my adhesive paper recommendations. Easy Peasy.
