Create Personalized Gift Tags

After your gifts are all wrapped up, add that finishing touch with DIY gift tags. Here’s how to design and personalize unique printable tags to make your gifts really stand out.

Step 1: Go to Avery Design & Print Online

Open the free Avery Design & Print Online software at To start a new project, enter your Avery product number (22802) and click GO.

Step 2: Select a format

Choose whether you want to see designs printed lengthwise on your tags by clicking “Printable Tags with Strings Wide.” To see designs printed widthwise, click “Printable Tags with Strings Tall.”

Step 4: Customize the tags

Once you’ve chosen your design, you’ll see a closeup of the tag.

Use the pre-designed template as is, or give it your own personal twist. You can also add a personal photo or graphic of your choice.

To change the existing graphic, click on the design to select it, and use the menu on the left to select another image from the Avery Gallery or from your own computer file.
