Ah, summer has past, the days and nights are getting cooler, and the leaves are starting to change color. Most of the veggies in my garden have been picked with a few remaining. This is when I start thinking of cooking inside and the upcoming holidays that are always closer than I think!
One thing I do this time of year is think about gifts I can make using my desktop publishing skills, desktop printer, and sometimes my laminating machine. Do you have family or friends that travel? Make them personalized luggage tags (http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1562.asp). You could make bookmarks from your digital photographs and even include an inspirational quote (http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art33130.asp).
You could even help that friend or family that is starting their own business with their own business cards or customized labels for their product. While you are at it, you can make your own gift tags too!
With that said -- or would that be written? -- here's the latest articles from the Desktop Publishing / Ebooks site at BellaOnline.com.
AveryŽ Marketing Solutions Product Labels
It used to be that specialty labels had to be ordered from a label printing company. Not anymore! There are labels that can be used on bottles, plastic and paper, die-cut into circles, squares, ovals and more, that can be printed right from your desktop printer!
Creating Gift Tags Using Word
Using one of the business card templates that come with Word you can create personalized gift tags for your holiday gifts.
