Lino-printed Tags

Thinking of ways to package things, I thought that lino-printing some small tags would add a nice little touch, and could also be used as price tags at local craft markets. I was first taught lino-printing at an art group I went to when I was younger, and I’ve used it as a way of making things like birthday cards ever since. It’s a quick and easy way of printing, and once you’ve carved the print it’s yours to keep and use again and again. These are the photos of how my attempt worked out!

After printing a couple of tags with the above print, I felt that they looked too plain, so I carved a negative and printed this over the top.

A few links with instructions for lino-printing:
