Vintage-Style Office Label Templates | Family Economics

By Cathe

Whether you’re organizing or crafting, vintage-style labels will not only come in handy, but add a charming touch to all your projects. I designed one sheet of labels similar in style to my collection of old office supply labels. vintage labels

To enjoy a set of your own, simply follow these steps:

•    Click here to download the free vintage-style office label template and print to plain paper or full sheet label paper.

•    Punch out the circle labels with a one-inch round craft paper punch. For the rectangle labels, cut them out with a paper trimmer or scissors.

•    If printing to plain paper, use paper glue or a sticker machine to add adhesive to the backs of the labels.

•    Make sure you print and trim several labels at a time to keep on hand for future use.

The uses for labels can be endless and can really help you stay organized in your home. Here are a just a few of the items you can label around your house.

•    Recipe cards
•    Lunch sacks
•    File folders
•    Gift cards & envelopes
•    Spices
•    Family calendar events
•    Notebooks
•    Books
•    Travel toiletries
•    Party favors
•    Canisters
•    Canned food/gifts
•    Scrapbook layouts

What are some good uses that you have for labels?

These are great. Thanks! I know this is an S.C. Johnson issue, but I really hate "captcha." I usually have to refresh at least 7 or 8 times before I get something I think I can read. Even then, I'm often wrong. (Just happened.) I know there must be simpler ways to validate a signature.

On Monday, April 16, 2012, Into Vintage wrote

Clever idea but then again I would expect nothing less from you. :-) These would work well to seal packages shipped from my etsy shop -- maybe with a little stamp of my shop's name. I have trouble using up the vintage ones (why is that?!) so these are a great alternative.
