Being firmly of the mind that presentation is key, and inspired by ordinary commercially packaged socks as well as Carolyn's post here, today I created a sock sleeve template in Microsoft Word.
Due to the fact that evidentally I need a new color printer cartridge (note the unattractive lines going vertically thru the sheep graphic), this particular sleeve will have to be printed again before this becomes an actual Christmas gift.
I am rather pleased with the template and because it's laid out in Word (just a simple 2 column table), it'll be a snap to personalize for each pair of socks I'll be gifting.
I found the graphic in the Microsoft Clip gallery, of all places. I looked there, not really expecting to find anything so appropriate, because I wanted a copyright free image to use. How pleasantly suprising.
Here it is, just in case you'd like to use it, too. Just right click and save it. It's a 300 dpi image and prints out at 1.5 inches x 1.8 inches. It won't look jaggedy if you take it. It's just like that here because I had to compress the size a bit so it won't break my blog template.
