How to make price tags and labels at home
See the box below. If you have the items on the 'I do have' list, you can make these tags and labels too. The 'I don't have' list sets some rules for what we can use.

This is not suitable for professional printing, but it may be a quick fix if ever required. I won't be talking much about computing, or graphics. I will be making the tags, and demonstrating what I did. Throughout this challenge you will see how I achieve results. If you can add to the solution please share it by commenting.
Strap yourself in, here we go!
Step 1: Open Paint and Save
To save the document as a 'tiff' simply select 'Save as', then 'Other formats' (as seen in the image above). 'tiff' is a saving option within. Don't forget to name your file, and to locate it in a place where you can later find it.
Step 2: Set the resolution
1 cm is 37.795 pixels (we can round this up to 37.8).
So, if you want something to print off in real life at 6.5cm by 4cm, you would do the sums:
6.5 x 37.8 = 245.7 and 4 x 37.8 = 151.2.
You now put 246 into the 'Horizontal' and 151 into the 'Vertical' boxes above. This will later print as a rectangle, measuring about 6.5cm by 4cm.
Step 3: Time to design
I'll leave the designing to you. Remember to 'Save' your work as you go.
Move the hexagon into position, lining it up with the left edge of the box and drag to size. They should not overlap (image below).
Step 4: Print
You could use this tutorial and make your own,
You could just print from a selection of free printable price tags and labels available here at Hooked On Patterns.
