We're sending them in a pre-wedding mailer that includes a booklet with travel/event info and a sweet treat. 

       

      *The monogram on the cover tag was designed using Arms and Times New Roman fonts. On the second tag, I used Sloop Script and Times New Roman.

        Can you please share with me what method you used to print on your cardstock tags? I really like the pink sparkly look with the monogram on it but I don't know how to go about doing that on my printer. Or did you get it printed at a special print shop? Did you have to make a template for that?

        Thanks so much for any information you can share with me!



        I used Microsoft Word to make the design, then printed with my inkjet printer. I created the design to the size of the tag, but printed to the size of a borderless 4x6 photo to get it to cover the whole tag. The tag does look sparkly, but I think its just the cardstock.  It took FOREVER to get it to print correctly from my printer, lots of trial and error. I literally went through 3 packs of tags before getting it right, and some still didn't print correctly because the cardstock is so thick.

          Can I ask where you got the starfish charms? I'd love to add those to my OOT bag tags!



          Thanks! 

          I ordered them from Oriental Trading. Here's the link (Silver Starfish)
