Growing up with an unusual name, I could never find personalized items with my name. Ever. Heck, I’ve never even met another person in real life who has my name! That might explain why I am so drawn to making gifts that are personalized. Adding a name or photo to a gift just makes it that much more special, I think. I love using OnlineLabels.com to create my own personalized items. They even offer a custom printing service, where you can have labels made using your own custom images. That’s how I made these fun, one of a kind custom pencils.
Even though it’s only July, I’m already thinking ahead to when school starts. I know my kids will LOVE having pencils and pens that are decorated with their favorite images. You can even use your kids artwork, or have them design something special to use. These custom, personalized labels would also make great gifts for kids you know. They would also make great party favors….just use an image that matches your party theme!
Don’t be overwhelmed with the idea of ordering stickers online! I made a quick video to show you how easy the process is. I also give tips on what kinds of images to upload, as well as pointers on which types of paper work best with this project. Check out my tutorial here:
