Below you will find two FREE sticker label templates (one is a holiday-themed mailing label, the other a holiday themed gift label) and FREE coordinating round “postmark” stickers.

PLEASE NOTE: There are now separate links for U.S. and UK downloads for those of you who prefer the date (“25”) before the month (“12”) in the design postmark. The flag icons will help direct you to the download-version you prefer.

lizvette rubber stamps

“After thinking of ways to keep my costs low I came across the idea of custom rubber stamps. I bought these at rubberstamps.net – they have free shipping when you spend $20! What I like the most is that I can stamp almost everything (thank you cards, hello notes, welcome packets, small goodie bags, small canvas totes…). I purchased the stamp ink at Michael’s, they have a great variety of colors that can match almost any type of branding. Cute, right?” –Lizvette Wreath

Life is finally starting to find a groove again though and we’ll be back and better than ever as the holiday season approaches so please check back here at paperieboutique.com often as well!
