You spent all that time crafting and creating to make sure that there will be enough product to sell at the next big craft fair. You’ve decided how much change you need to bring, how to set up your booth, and how much everything is going to be priced at. Now it’s time for the price tags. You’ll hear over and over again how important signage can be for your sales, and it’s true. You want to make sure that you’ve not only priced your items reasonably, but also that passers-by can easily read the price of an item without having to ask you or look far away from the item they are considering.
Of course, creating your product is the most important part and once you’re done with that it can be hard to come up with creative and fun ways to tag all of the merchandise you just made. Well to help get your ideas flowing, I’ve put together this collection of eight gift tag ideas to use as inspiration!
8 DIY Gift Tag Ideas
Making sure that each of your items is priced clearly is essential and extremely easy to do with this quick price tag tutorial shown above! All you need is a price tag punch, some paper, number stamps, and a hole punch. It doesn’t get easier does it?
If you sell sewn items, make sure your customers never forget you with hand embroidered felt price tags. Or if you love the idea of incorporating what you do into the tags, but just don’t have the time to make felt ones, try the simple paper embroidered version.
I also found some really great recycled price tags made from a pretty patterned box! This tutorial is yet another reason why I save all cool cards and boxes – great source of cool paper!
If you already have a set of pre-ordered price tags, don’t worry! There are still lots of ways you can make those your own. Just think of them as blank canvases like this blogger did. Some stencils and pretty colored pens is all it takes to create your own original, unique, and memorable price tags. Or you can take some embossing powder and create some gorgeous shapes to add some sparkle to plain paper tags. Any way that you can think of to dress up your tags will make them your own and give them a little something extra.
Another super simple idea is to just stamp the shapes onto some plain paper and cut out the tags that you need. This might work well if you’re not hand cutting a ton.
Last, but not least. I had to include this one because it was just too cute and I had never seen anything like it. This DIY Confetti Gift Tag is so much easier to make than it sounds and it gives you such a cool effect! It’d be perfect for sellers of kid’s toys or clothes don’t you think?
So there you have them. Some ideas for spicing up your price tags, because every detail counts!
