So let's get started.

What are the things you need to understand before making personalised name labels?

  • The orientation of the label

Labels can be printed horizontally or vertically. But I think printing them horizontally is better as it gives more space to write your words on it. But you can print them as you prefer.


  • The theme of the label

You need to understand your needs. If you are making name labels for your upcoming event you need to corporate the theme of your event into the name labels. You should use the same colors, symbols, and/or graphics to tie everything together.


  • Font type and size

Name labels are meant to be read, so it's best to make your labels with an easily readable way. I guess Serif and sans serif fonts are ideal over the script and handwritten for that purpose. Larger fonts are also favored and sometimes paired with all caps and/or bold formatting. 


  • Color choices

When you print the names you need to avoid low-contrast colors like yellow on white. Also if the background color is too strong, you won't be able to see the names clear enough. That’s why you need to pay more attention while choosing colors. 


After having an idea about the above details, you can get started making your name labels.
