If you want to make Mother's Day extra special this year, try using my printable gift tags as messages! Slip one inside your mother's purse or wallet so that she gets an unexpected surprise during the day. You could also attach one to her morning coffee or breakfast tray or hide them around the house for her to find throughout the day.

How to Print Mother's Day Gift Tags
The cheapest option for printing your free Mother's Day gift tags will be to print them on your home printer.
What is the best cardstock to make gift tags?
For best results, I recommend using bright white cardstock or watercolor paper. These materials are sturdy and will give your gift tags a professional finish.
Best printer settings for gift tags
When it comes to printing, you want to be sure you have the best printer settings for your gift tags. Some printers allow you to adjust the print quality to ensure that the colors are vibrant and the images are sharp. Here are some tips for getting the best printing results:
- When using cardstock or watercolor paper to print your gift tags, choose the setting 'Heavy paper' if your printer has that option.
- It's also a good idea to choose the 'borderless' option if your printer has it. The 'borderless' setting will give your gift tags a clean, professional look.
- If you are using an ink-jet printer, wait around 20 seconds for the gift tags to dry before touching them. Otherwise, you might smear the ink.
NOTE: If you order a product from one of the partners via links on this page, I receive a small percentage. I only recommend products that I have already used myself or have selected with care. You pay the same price whether you use my affiliate link or not. Please read my full disclosure here.
★Tip★ A laser-jet printer is the best printer for printing printables at home. You will find the colors are much more vibrant after printing than they are with an ink-jet printer.
What if I don't have a printer at home?
If you don't have a printer at home, don't worry! Many online printing services allow you to upload your design and have your gift tags printed and delivered to your doorstep. Make sure you choose a reputable printing service and select the correct paper type and finish for your gift tags. If in doubt, contact the printing service for advice.
My free printable Mother's Day gift tags are designed for personal use only. You are welcome to print and use these tags as many times as you like for your personal gifting needs. However, please do not sell or transfer these files to others. Chalking Up Success owns all designs on this blog, and copyright laws protect them.
