(Last updated November 8, 2013)

A bookplate is a small print or decorative label pasted into a book (usually on the inside front cover), traditionally to indicate its owner. I've designed some bookplates that you can print out yourself to stick in the front of your copy of I'M BORED before you present it as a gift as well as more traditional "From the Library Of" bookplates. Note that you can also use the "To: and From:" bookplates designs as fun gift tags as well!

Because of increased postage costs in Canada, I am no longer able to provide signed bookplates, sorry. :-(

How To Use These Bookplate Designs:

Click on any of the following thumbnails to get a print-ready PDF.

1. Print on either an Avery adhesive label sheet (8.5" x 11" or Avery #5164 for pre-cut labels) or plain paper.

2. If you're not using Avery #5164 labels, then you'll need to cut out the bookplates yourself. I advise using a straight ruler and pencil to mark your cut lines first, or use the versions with the cut lines.

3. If using plain paper and not an Avery label sheet, then you'll need to find a way to stick the label into the front of the book. You could use an acid-free glue stick or acid-free double-sided tape on the back of the bookplate.
