How it Works
1. INSTANT DOWNLOAD
Instantly download this printable Elf on the Shelf ID Card template immediately after your payment has been processed.
2. PERSONALIZE AT HOME
Open the template in the FREE Adobe Reader on your laptop or computer and personalize each ID Card. This template will ONLY work in Adobe Reader not in any other program (or on your mobile device). Note that you will only be able to edit the Elf name & family name – no other text can be changed.
3. CHOOSE YOUR PAPER
All templates print on US Letter (8.5 x 11) or A4 size paper as follows:
For the single page Elf ID Cards – I recommend regular white computer paper OR thicker cardstock for a more professional look.
For the 8 x page ID Cards – I recommend compatible Avery 5390/5383 name badge inserts OR regular white computer paper OR thicker cardstock
4. PRINT & CUT
Print the ID cards on your home color printer OR at a copy shop (Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Officeworks etc). If not using the pre-cut Avery inserts, you will need to cut out the cards after printing. See all my printing tips here.
Insert the larger ID cards into a badge holder with a lanyard (fits most standard horizontal badge holders – check sizes before purchasing), or laminate and punch a hole to thread a coordinating ribbon/lanyard through.
