The holidays are a blur. There are so many things to plan and do. So it's inevitable that things are bound to slip through the cracks. In this article, we're addressing one little detail that goes a long way into upping your personalized approach to the Christmas – label templates. Label templates are a nice yet simple way to personalize all your communication this holiday season.
Why a Label Template?
But what are label templates?
They are thematic placeholders that you can use to attach to your gifts, letters, packages, and Christmas cards. You can use label templates as labels (think address labels) or as gift tags (to tie on gift boxes, gift bags), or simply as Christmas decoration (attach to anything you want!)
For making the labels, you have two options: paper or sticker.
Paper: print your labels on nice heavy card stock, colored or black and white, cut them out, punch a hole, tie on your gift with a cute tie.
Sticker: print your labels on special sticker paper, detach, then place on your gifts, cards, or letters.
In this article, we will give you some of our favourite Christmas label templates with different themes, holiday messages, and printing formats.
Oh, and you have a lot of people on your Christmas list, then writing out a label for each person might be too time-consuming. If handmade place cards, Christmas cards, or invitations are not your thing, there is a clever alternative – mail merge using your email. You just enter all the information into an Excel file, and your electronic Christmas cards or invitations can be easily mass emailed.
First up we have these classic, versatile Christmas label templates from Avery. These are basic, functional printable Christmas designs with ample space for your text. You can choose from different formats from one of three categories: Christmas gift tag template, Christmas card, or Christmas gift tag template.
Avery allows you to customize these before you print them off. You can type out all the info, build the templates, and then print them off when you're ready to go. They come in various sizes for added customization.
We really like the simple, minimal designs. There are a bunch of classic holiday looks to choose from, and you'll surely find something you like. Oh, and best of all, they're free! And while there are extra paid options if you desire, we think the free label templates are more than good enough.
Here are some awesome, extremely simple Christmas Gift Tags from The Inspiration Board. We really like these tags because of their stylish minimalism – a simple holiday “Merry Christmas” message, on a clean white background. Black and white or red and white? You decide. We also like the classic “gift tag” shape, with a spot for a hole-punch as well.
If you're looking for that classic gift tag look, and want a simple template to mark all your holiday gifts, then you can't go wrong with this free template. One thing to keep in mind here is that you get free pdf templates, not an editable Photoshop file where you can change things like font and text.
