27 Free Chalkboard-Style Printable Gift Tags

Today I'm excited to share with you some free super-fun printable gift tags for your wrapping holiday pleasure - thanks to Los Angeles-based illustrator/hand letterer, Emily McDowell. I asked Emily if she could make up some chalkboard-inspired gift tags for our readers, and I'm loving what she delivered!  These would look great against anything from kraft paper, red checks, even black!  I hope you can use them - they're easy to print up and cut out (print on label paper, regular (then just glue) or punch a hole in a corner and pull a piece of twiner or yarn through them.  Click HERE for the pdf.  A huge thanks to Emily!  Please visit her online and read more about her beautiful hand lettering and illustration work (see links below):

Emily is a Los Angeles-based illustrator/hand-letterer, designer, and creative director. She currently divides her time between illustration, launching Emily+Ross, her new, vintage-inspired scarf brand (emilyandross.com), working in advertising, and trying to use up all the chard in the CSA box. Using a range of styles and approaches, her favorite subject is our shared human experience. She is inspired by pop culture, nature, folk art, geometry, psychology, and the crazy urban landscape of LA.

I'm thinking of using these *even though* yuletide wishes for 'warmth' and 'coziness' are the furthest thing from my mind during our heatwave-y summer Christmases! Just goes to show you that I genuinely like them. ;) Thank you for being generous with your artwork. I love that.

Thank you so much for these! They are ADORABLE to say the least! I just printed them on white card stock, and adhered them onto a deep red card stock and they were perfect! I think these are the best I've seen, and I love the chalkboard look! I'm secretly hoping you come up with some for next year! Thanks again for sharing your talents with all of us!
