Ahh, there is a tiny light at the end of the tunnel; can’t wait to finally have a few days off and enjoy the company of friends and family. With the Christmas season in full bloom, these days my tolerance gets every so often put to the test. The masses of tourists on Marienplatz,
crazy reckless people in the shops and demanding clients. I’m so looking forward to some sweet down time…
Meanwhile our kitchen seems a bit deserted at times, the stove stays cold. Oliver claims, he’s already loosing weight. Speaking of priorities, despite all that’s going on I can’t deny my creative nature and had to design my own gift labels. Feel free to use them for your own gifts or simply as a tag to remind you which present belongs to whom…
Please note that these labels are for non-commercial use only. They’re best printed on thick paper, DIN A4 (or letter size), no scaling: 120gram/sq.meter, better yet 200gsm, which is comparable to the paper used for business cards (see this PDF for paper weight conversion). Also, keep in mind that not all printers can handle paper that thick and before you have to nicely ask Santa to bring you a new one, check with the manual :)
EDIT Nicky: We use our standard inkjet printer (hp officejet 6110 all-in-one), set to the highest possible quality (takes longer to print!), paper type and high resolution control turned to “Other inkjet papers” or “hp brochure and flyer, matte finish” for the colored prints to be crisp and clean (see example in the photography above). Finally, check the Adobe Acrobat Reader settings and make sure that under “Page Handling” scaling is set to none.
EDIT EDIT: The PDF file is not available anymore, perhaps we’ll come up with a new set next Christmas season.
