This past week I ordered 1000, yes you read right 1000, hang tags from Staples. Why? Because Staples only carries the size of hang tag I wanted online and in batches of 1000....I guess I'll be making all my christmas gift tags this year too! I'm still waiting for them to arrive. But I had some I had purchased from the Container Store (omg....I won't go into how much I love that place) and wanted to try out some designs to see what would look best.
I knew I wanted to incorporate the silhouette I have on my blog header since I love it and it's vintage and ties my products to my blog. A while back I purchased these stamps for this exact purpose.
The one on the right is the closest to what I have on my blog header, and YES it drives me a little batty because it's not oriented the same way....I will survive. I knew I wanted to make my tags memorable and standout, so of course embossing was the only option...man I love embossing.
So I stamped, I drew, I wrote, I tested, I burned
off some fingerprints and here's what I ended up with
The silhouette is stamped in Red Rocket Gold Ink and I used clear embossing powder over top. The words are hand printed by yours truly in 2 sharpie colours. The back will have the info about the apparel. It's not as pretty.
Now to make 1000 more when the other tags arrive....
