Customizable Labels and Tags

This post for labels and tags contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

These Free Printable Custom Labels and Tags coordinate perfectly with all of the free printables from this month's organizational series. I've also included detailed instructions on how you can make these into custom labels and tags using your favorite word processing program.

Free Printable Labels
I do have to say, today's free printable (and customizable) labels and tags may be one of my favorite printable sets from this entire month. In my opinion, they're truly the best solution to organize anything. Plus, their fun colors and classic shapes just make me smile. Grab yours below.

Customizable Labels and Tags:

In the past, you all seemed to love printable labels and tags. I recently created another set of labels (it was in the laundry labels post), but I wanted a more neutral set, too. Today, I'm sharing both a hanging version of tags and a plain rectangular set of labels, as well. They can easily become custom labels and tags, too, with my tricks below.

Design Tidbits

Organizing Supplies with Printables
  • These are designed to have a white border around the edges, for that classic label look. 
  • I added a tiny hairline around the border of each tag and label to make these easier for you to cut out. 
  • The white around the frame really adds a fun layer of dimension that makes the colors pop. 
  • There are also three colors of each style (so six free printable labels and tags in all).

How to Print Your Labels and Tags:

  • Download all of your labels and tags using the links provided further below. 
  • You may customize your labels and tags with the below instructions, as well.
  • These are best printed on to white card stock paper. Regular weight paper is too flimsy to use for your custom labels and tags.
  • You can also turn the labels into stickers by printing them onto full size label sheets. This also makes them work as gift tags to stick on your present.
  • Print using the BEST/PREMIUM or NORMAL ink settings on your home printer (this is the printer I use).
  • These labels and tags work best with twine and/or double sided tape.

Ready to make these free printables into custom labels and tags? Check out the instructions on how to do this below:

Make Custom Labels
I'm a Mac person, so I use Pages (but, most people do not... I know this). However, Pages and Word are fairly interchangeable. These instructions for making your own label customizations should work in most (if not all) word processing programs. 
  • Start by opening a new document and inserting an image (that image being your set of labels or tags). 
  • Drag the handles of the image as far as the document will allow to make sure it's full size. The trick here is to make sure it is in the background in your object placement selection. Make sure you do not allow a wrap on it (that will cause the text to go around the image, rather than on top it).

Custom Labels in Word
  • Now, you can type your desired text right on top of the labels or tags. 
  • Use your tab button and/or space bar to get your text into the spot you desire (you can also move the labels or tags just slightly in the background to get your text perfectly in the center...but try not to move the actual image too much). 
  • Voila! You now have a perfectly personalized label.
  • Now, you're ready to print your own custom labels and tags with this little trick in your back pocket. 
  • For the above labels, I used the font Austie Bost Starlit Beach, designed by my online buddy, Austin Owens, who is a fantastic font designer and all around creativepreneur. She has some lovely designs on her site.

Using the Tags

Organizing with Custom Labels
I have mentioned this above, but I prefer to use a smaller hole punch for labels like these that doesn't distract from the design. It also makes that area of the tag more durable.
These free printable custom labels and tags work perfectly with good ol' baker's twine.

Labels on Jars

Other Uses for the Tags

Printable gift tags
  • The hang tags would also make lovely gift tags, too. They're the perfect finishing touch to any present.
  • They'd also be great name labels for school (on cubbies and such).
  • Use these as garment tags in your retail business (kindly purchase a commercial license here to use these in that manner). 
  • Add care instructions to homemade quilts and such on these tags.
  • Use these as logo labels in your small business (kindly purchase a commercial license here to use these in that manner). They're perfect to add your company's artwork for its brand image.

Blue, Pink, and Aqua Labels

Please note: the aqua and blue colors aren't too terribly different from one another. They would be fun to interchange with the hanging labels from the laundry room organizational printables post.

Lots of free labels
