How to Make Price Tags

by Chelsea Hoffman

Whether you're a small shop owner or you're simply hosting a yard or rummage sale, making price tags for your merchandise proves to be a simple task. Making price tags allows you to display them on your products for people to purchase them with ease. This not only helps your customers, but it helps you keep track of how much you've sold. With the use of very minimal materials and time, you can make price tags for a variety of items.

1

Place a sheet of adhesive-backed printer paper into the printer's paper feeder. Make sure the film-covered side of the paper is facing upward.

2

Open your computer's paint or photo editing software.

3

Select a blank template that matches the size of the printer paper.

4

Create a grid with the line tool on your paint software. Make four columns of equal width and place a horizontal line across the template after every two inches.

5

Print the template onto the adhesive printer paper.

6

Use a fine-tipped permanent marker to write the prices that correspond with items you are trying to sell. Make sure to write a price within each square of the grid.

7

Cut out the priced squares carefully using the scissors. To use the price tags, simply peel off the film backing and stick the price tag onto the item.
