Printing your own nameplates

    Hi Guys

    i know that companies like Name It! produce great value nameplates, but I like the flexibility and convenience of printing my own using nothing but Word and my home printer.

    in essence I print on overhead projector acetate sheet, add a background colour and use double sided tape to fix it in place. It is important that all of the printing is on the reverse side and so cannot be damaged when in place.

    here is a link to a downloadable pdf explaining the process in easy steps.


    the one below is a simple font with a simple border, but you can add anything which you can put in a Word textbox.
