Designing your gift tags for maximum impact. 

Custom gift tags serve as the exclamation point to finish your packaging. It provides an eye-catching accent that also doubles as a canvas to write your message on. As such, the design has to really stand out. Here are a few points to consider in creating your holiday gift tag design: 

  • Go for a pop of color – Gift tags, considering their diminutive size, need to be easily seen. Consider using a vivid color palette in your design to ensure that the gift tag turns heads and catches attention immediately. 
  • Consider the coating – You can opt for matte, gloss, high-gloss, or uncoated finish to complete the look of your gift tags. Each has its own benefits, especially with writability. When making handwritten notes, a ballpoint pen is perfect for uncoated and matte finished gift tags. For gift tags coated with gloss and high gloss, using a permanent ink marker is recommended. 
  • Hole placement matters – It might not seem much at first glance, but hole placement affects design. Depending on the artwork and the text, adding holes to the left, center, or right side of the gift tag can make or break how a gift tag looks, especially when considering space for text. 


Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I write on the gift tags? 

Yes, you can. For gift tags with an uncoated or matte finish, you can use ballpoint pens. For those with a gloss or high-gloss coat, we recommend testing writability first but using a permanent ink marker works best. 


How do I use gift tags? 

Gift tags are a versatile way of adding personalized accents to products and giveaways. Create your design and choose your gift tag size as well as the hole size and location. Use a string tie to affix the gift tag on your products or packages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!! These gift tags were perfect. The paper was good and sturdy. I loved the matte finish. The holes were drilled dead center and the cards were cut perfectly. (Spacing was spot on-cut where they were supposed to, nothing off or wonky.) I am so pleased! UPrinting has consistently provided high quality printing on high end papers for the best prices. We love UPrinting!
