How to Create a Tag in Word [10+ Best Examples]


Whether indicating your name to your property or indicating the receiver of a gift, a tag is an effective tool that you can use to convey specific information. Regardless of the purpose, once a tag is made carefully with consideration on the details and information that needs to be conveyed it can help make things easily recognizable. A small detail as it may seem, it is still a cost-effective tool to use.

How to Create a Tag in Word

Here is a short and easy guide you can follow when creating a tag in Microsoft Word:

1. Establish a theme

Having an established theme will make it easier for you to design the tag. The theme will also make it easier for you to look for the appropriate images, font style, colors, etc. to use. However, establishing a theme should consider other aspects, especially when used for business, such as branding, season or occasion, promos, and so on.

2. Insert tag shape

On a blank document, insert the shape you want your tag to be. To insert a shape, go to the Insert tab then click Shape, a drop-down of options for the shape you can insert on the page will be given. After choosing the shape, drag the cursor across the page to draw it. After that, you can adjust the points to make it the shape symmetrical and balanced.

3. Place an image inside the tag

The next step is for you to add the appropriate image to your card. To use an image as a background, go to the  Drawing Tools Format tab, click Shape Fill and choose the Picture option; click on the image and go to the Format and select Send to Back option. On the other hand, if you want to use an image as an accent or decoration on the tag, go to the Insert tab, click Picture then select the image you want. Then, right-click on the image and change its layout format to a square so that you can easily resize the image without distorting its quality; drag it to where it’s supposed to be.

4. Add required texts

You can immediately begin typing the texts needed for your tag; however, should you decide to have a separate writing space, you can insert a text box. To do so, go to Insert tab then click Text Box, you can drag the points to fit it inside the shape you have already drawn.

5. Group elements

Grouping all the elements you have included in your tag ensures that it moves as a whole, which will help you easily duplicate it. To do so, highlight all the elements and right-click within your layout, look for the Grouping… option and click Group.

6. Duplicate and print

Once you have everything grouped together you can now copy and paste it on the page. This will help you maximize the use of your paper in an effort to be more cost-effective. Once you have arranged your tags, go to the File tab, click the Print button and click the Print Preview option to make sure everything will be printed within the paper.
