  17. Helen-Clare Burich November 27, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    I downloaded your beautiful Holiday tags; what a great early gift. I do have a question, at the bottom of the blanks you suggested two fonts; mine downloaded in Adobe and I have been unsuccessful trying to type something in. Any suggestions?

  18. miranda November 28, 2012 at 11:42 am

    I went to open the PDF’s in Photoshop to add text and they open black? Am I doing something wrong?? Thanks!

  19. Joanna November 28, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    I’m new to Adobe products. How do I customize these PDFs?

  20. sabreena November 29, 2012 at 7:47 am

    What is the best way to print these? on particual card stock? can i print these on regular paper and then bring to a staples to have them copy then on the thicker cardstock for example. Thanks

    • alyssa December 4, 2012 at 10:46 am

      Hi Sabreena,

      You can print at home on your own printer or take them to FedEx, Staples, or any other location for printing. If you are taking them to get printed, just bring the downloaded zip file on a flash drive or cd. We recommend card stock for the mini treat toppers, embellishments, gift tags & banners. The rest can be printed on standard premium (regular) paper. Good luck printing!

  21. Jill December 18, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    These are just gorgeous! Wish I was hosting a party this holiday season…maybe save for next year :)

  22. Linda October 20, 2013 at 6:14 am

  23. Jeanine E. Leary October 21, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    Very CUTE, thank you. Nice font choice

  24. Sharron Fields December 15, 2014 at 12:10 pm

    Hello – the printables arebearutiful; however I wanted to inquire whether or not I they are available in word format as you cannot type over PDF. Also inquirng what type of paper if we are using Avery labels. Thanks.

    • jenn s. December 15, 2014 at 2:09 pm

      Hi Sharon –
      So happy you like the printables! They were designed in Adobe Photoshop and are only available in Adobe PDF format though – apologies for any inconvenience. I’m not sure about the Avery labels question… I use either text weight or card stock for all of these myself. I’ve found that you have more control over the placement of things like the party flags on straws or toothpicks when using regular paper and a glue stick. Hope you’re still able to get some use out of these. Good luck & happy holidays! :)

  25. Adrianne B November 21, 2015 at 5:44 am

    THANK YOU for sharing this. The blank tent cards are perfect for when I have to bring my famous Peppermint Shortbread Cookies to a potluck and want to provide signage.
