This post may contain affiliate links! get words on your washi tape


I can’t get enough of washi tape. I buy mine here or here or here 71+lZfx1D+L._SL1300_

can’t. get. enough.

i love it…so much!!! (it’s basically like patterned tape..) but i’m finding an excuse to stick it on everything!!!
washi tape love

and I was wrapping up an etsy order and put washi tape on it…and thought..this would be so much fun if it said THAnk you!

and so i did…cause it’s easy.

hoped on the computer and printed all different sayings and fonts…cause i’m addicted to fonts!

washi with print


then you pick your washi tape…you want light colors..and not too much pattern on it…and lay it over each line… washi tape printable


then peel it up..you can see the ink sticks to it!!! IT’s amazing washi tape with words

slap it on everything…packages…

wrap up a present with washi

cookie wrappers.. washi tape with words...easy diy


envelope with washi tape lunchbags, notes to your kids, scrapbooking pictures, anything you want a special little note!!!!


I love this washi tape:


and this one 91OFSw80UpL._SL1500_ this one is adorable 71-MTtsr+AL._SL1222_ and this one: 91sns8Im1SL._SL1500_

and last but not least 61vpJkpfN+L._SL1000_


edited to add: Some people said it won’t work with their specific printers. My printer is an HP photo smart

HP Photosmart D110A Wireless Printer (CN731A#B1H)


So..if it doesn’t work…you could follow these instructions and then before you pull up the washi…run it through your printer and have them print on top of the washi!!!! good luck!

go here to see more washi gloriousness…

  1. That is so incredibly cool!

  2. Awesome! I have seen people print directly on the washi tape, but after trying it, I found that the ink just smears off – I like this way better. I’ll have to give it a try!

  3. Kristin C. says:

    WHAT?!?!?! That’s awesome!

  4. windie d says:

    do you know if with works with both inkjet & laser printers?

  5. whoaa super cutee.. but will the washi tape still sticky or not?

  6. Donna Billingsley says:

    You are too smart! I LOVE IT! I’m headed upstairs to try this!!! Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!

  7. This is so fantastic! Such a fun idea that I would have never thought of. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Leanne Cyr says:

    Brilliant! Thank you!!

  9. Sad to say, it didn’t work for me.

  10. How cool! Will definitely try this!

  11. Washi tape is my absolute favorite crafting supply. This just blows my mind. Thank you for sharing!!!

  12. I love that idea. Could you try printing on top of the tape, would it work?

  13. do you know this works with both inkjet & laser printers? What type of printer did you use.

  14. Linda Deavours says:

    Thank you for this clever idea.


  15. I have a LASER printer and this was a no go for me. Do you have an ink-jet perhaps? May want to specify in your above post?

  16. pinkhandprint says:

    What kind of printer does it work with; inkjet or laser?

  17. Barb Glasscoe says:

    Yeah — it did not work for me at all. It either pulls up absolutely nothing or if you press it really hard then it pulls up a layer of paper along with it.

    Did you by any chance do your printing on something other than just regular copy paper? Was it something with a shiny finish that might allow the print to lift off?

  18. Hi! I wanted to try this super cool idea, but the ink doesn’t stick to my laser printed letters 🙁
    Did you do this with an inkjet? Or is there another way to try with my laser printer…

    Thanks!! Liz

  19. Will this work on a laser printer?

  20. Wonderful idea! Thank you for sharing!

  21. I love this idea! Can’t wait to use it for some thank you notes!

  22. Great idea! Stopped by from Tip Me Tuesday! Pinning this.

  23. I have to try this…………….so cool!
    Linda recently posted…So Sweet But Yet So Disruptive.My Profile

  24. I was thinking that you could print it on the paper for alignment, then put the tape over the words put that into the printer and print again to get the words on the front of the tape. I’m not sure the tape isn’t too slick, but I’m going to try it. I’m like you, I love fonts!

  25. Just a heads-up for any fellow readers with a laser printer (like me!) — sticking the Washi tape directly IN the printer to print on it? Sounds great, but it can melt and gum up and completely ruin your printer! Not saying it will; it depends on your model. But wanted to throw that warning out there just as a caveat!

  26. This is awesome – what a cool idea and great tip. Thanks for sharing it.

  27. Great idea! Shared it on my Facebook. Happy New Year- Holly 🙂

  28. Totally didn’t work with my Canon inkjet. I’m really bummed.

  29. Carole Morrison says:

    Good Morning from Chicago!! I just “happened” upon your site……being a “little late to the party”…….I absolutely love your Washi Tape tips!! Thanks so much!!

  30. This is such a great idea! A whole new reason to buy washi tape.

  31. Girl you are a genius!!! Thank you so much for the tips. I’m in like flynn (old old saying from the 60’s that means I’m definitely going to do it). ? Smooches.

  32. Janice Patterson says:

    Could you tell me the names of two of the fonts used here?

    I love the font used for the “Limbo loves you” and the “Thank You” under it!

    Please let me know the name of those fonts and or where to get them. Thanks!

  33. What is the font used for the “Limbo loves you” and the “Thank You” under it?

  34. Staz On Ink will not smudge if you use it on top of your washi tape. You have to let it dry thoroughly though otherwise it will smudge. This is the way I ‘print’ on my washi tape. You can buy plain washi tape and print your own patterns on it! Have fun with which ever way works for you. 🙂
