PRINTING





PRINTING FROM HOME

PRINTING TUTORIAL
Home Printing (preferred choice)

The full printing looks best printed on Matte/Gloss photo paper or  card stock.
It gives the best quality and weight.
You can also use a matte or gloss card stock and it looks beautiful.
CARD STOCK
(card stock can be found at any hobby store or at Walmart, Target etc..please use the smooth finish)
Card stock is a wonderful heavy printer paper. It has a nice professional look.
This is the paper of choice if you are printing on the back of the invites or tags also!

Some other fun paper choices are
Dollar TREE glossy Photo Paper
 I know CRAZY but it prints glossy and has a nice weight to it and it is 8 for a 1.00 Can't beat that!!

Kodak Matte/Gloss Photo Paper
My other paper of choice is Kodak matte/gloss  paper. It prints perfect. Not  glossy, but with the perfect amount of shine for crystal clear images...They also have the perfect amount of thickness for a nice professional looking print
You can also use a matte or gloss card stock and it looks FAB-U-LOUS

IF YOU ARE PRINTING A BLACK BACKGROUND such as chalkboard etc.. 
 use a glossy card stock or  photo paper for the best shine!


PRINTER SETTINGS
Print at 8.5 x 11 *letter size*
I would use photo paper option or card matte option (printer advanced options)
All printers have these in options when printing!
 I can not or do not know all and where these option are on your computer. 
If you are printing on photo matte paper make sure to use the photo paper option or you will get lines thorough your design.


PRINTING IN OFFICE SUPPLY STORE
These stores print in the 8.5 x11 like your home printer. Letter Size!
Ask for their card stock and ask to print as a 8.5 x 11. 
(this paper is what you would use if you want to print back to back) 
The paper weight is great and super easy. You can upload online or bring on a flash drive.
They do print slightly darker but pretty close to screen.

If you are printing a black background (chalkboard..neon) I would suggest a glossy card stock!
They also do offer cutting services if you do not want to cut them! :)

That's it! Easy and great quality. All my party printables look best printed this way!




Now CUT your designs

You can use the tags in so many ways!

You can attach to your gift with tape or a glue dot


Punch a hole with a standard hole punch and add to gift bag!


Other fun uses!!
Candy or homemade tags to add to your bag

Add to a simple vase and tie with a ribbon!
Add to a simple vase and tie with a ribbon!


If you want to add a name I use a sharpie and pen and add it to the front or back !!
