Prepare your yard sale items for potential buyers by making sure everything you want to sell has a price label. People like to see the price of an item before deciding whether to purchase it--and they often don't want to ask the owner. Boost your sales by marking every item with a price label. Make and print your own price labels using your computer and printer and avoid the expense of having them printed.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Design software or word-processing software
- Label paper
Open your design software or word-processing software. Choose a label from the template options offered in your software. Make sure the template you choose matches the size of the labels on the paper you have chosen.
Choose a font style, colour and size from the text toolbar at the top of the page and type the prices you want on the label boxes in the document.
Add some small clip art if you like. Click on the clip art icon at the top of the page and choose a design that matches the item you are pricing.
Position the label paper into the printer as directed by the label instructions or your printer manual.
Press “Ctrl+P” on your keyboard or select "File" and then "Print" from the toolbar at the top of the document to open the options for your printer. Choose the printer you want to use and select the number of copies you want to print. Click “OK” to print your price labels on the sticker label paper.
Tips and warnings
- To avoid wasting label paper, do a test printout on regular paper. Hold the test print up to your label paper (near a light source), and make sure they align properly. Make any necessary adjustments before you print on the label paper.
