Free Vintage Tags: Lots of Beary Hugs

Here are some tags which I made and which I wanna share with you.
There are so many uses for these tags - the possibilities are endless: birthdays, gifts, as a label for your teddy bears or other projects. It's up to your creative mind :o)
The label is made at 300 dpi high quality and ready to print.

1. Left click on image to enlarge. 2. Right click to save to your PC

Tag size approx. 5 x 8 cm - 2 x 3.2 inch

The sheet below is made at 180 dpi - medium quality.
Safe them with your photo software at 300 dpi or print them at 300 dpi!
Click on Image - right mouse click to View & to safe File
HOW TO GET A GOOD QUALITY PRINT:
Check if your image is saved at 300 dpi (= resolution or pixels). If not adjust it.
Use 220 gr. ivory cardstock (in my case Papicolor).
Check if your printer does accept this type!
The type of paper makes a huge difference in your print quality!!! I cannot stress this enough.
Nex step: select your printer settings.
After clicking on the print button a little screen will pop up. Instead of clicking on the ok button (like you normally do), now you go to properties.

Below is a screen shot how it looks on my computer.
Yours may look a little different, but it should be pretty similar.:
 
On your properties screen you choose:
- matte photo paper (even though you print on cardstock the result will be better)
- then you go to quality option or whatever your screen offers and select highest quality.
- and the you hit the OK button

After printing cut them out and if you like you can distress the edges. 
Tie them with a coordinating piece of ribbon, button twine, bakers twist,
whatever you like to use.

I made them slightly different but:
Tip: I used deckle-edge scissors (Reuser) to cut the tags.
Best of luck when you create your own tags!!!
