Sometimes a simple, subtle tag can be the most effective form of packaging for products. This is especially true of items that are intended to be picked up and tried out, such as clothing and accessories, or products where the customer wants to be able to see the contents, for example anything in a bottle or jar. Whether a hang tag lists the ingredients for strawberry jam or the washing instructions for a handmade scarf, they are a versatile form of packaging that can be utilized for a wide range of items.
Hang Tags are generally small, but can be ordered in a variety of sizes. The most common order is for 2" x 3.5" on 14pt Gloss Cardstock. They are almost always printed in full colour on both sides (4/4) and coated UV on at least one side.
Hang Tags are a popular way to increase brand recognition, company presence, and product promotion. They help create a consistent identity for brands or companies with several product lines and are a "must have" for apparel sales. Studies have shown that Hang Tags attract attention and boost sales in a retail environment.
Adding a QR code linked to a website can be a great way to provide customers more detail without having to cram everything into one spot and gives you a way to updated information as often as you would like without having to reprint tags.
Hang Tags - Folded FAQ
Can you print Folded Hang Tags in a custom size, not listed on your website?
Yes, we can print custom sizes. To make an online order for a custom size, choose the next available size option on the Folded Hang Tags product page. Once you've completed your online order, please email us your order number and in that email indicate what the correct size should be.
Do the Folded Hang Tags come with strings?
No, hang tags do not come with strings. However, if you email us and indicate what kind of strings you are looking for, we could be able to assist you.
What paper should I choose if I need to write on Folded Hang Tags?
If the Folded Hang Tags need to be written on, you should choose some of the uncoated paper stock options.
- 14pt Uncoated
- 14 pt. - 100 lb. Lynx® Uncoated Cover FSC®
- 130 lb. Cougar® Super Smooth Cover (18 pt.) FSC®
- 100 lb. Rolland Enviro™ Smooth Cover
The Linen paper has a textured and a smooth side, so you can create a design on one side and have writing on the other to overcome any issues with the paper texture.
How much space should be left for the hole drill on Folded Hang Tags?
Depending on the tag's size and the hole's size and position, the top of the drill will usually be placed between 0.125" and 0.5" from the tag's edge(s). It is best to leave a minimum margin of 0.5" from the border for the hole. This will ensure that critical design elements or information will not conflict with the drilling. Any background colour, design, or image should extend into this area. The hole's exact position can shift slightly throughout the course of the drilling process.
Can you print Folded Hang Tags that are not folded in the middle?
Yes, we can create different folds. However, if the fold you need is not listed on our website, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if it can be done and for a custom quote.
I may need to write on the back of the hang tag for pricing. Would the coating on the 16 pt card stock prevent me from being able to do that?
You will be able to write on a 16 pt Card, but you would have to test a couple of different types of pens to see which one will not smudge.
Is it possible to have all 4 pages of the Folded Hang Tag designed?
Yes, you would just have to design your file that way. Your file should have 2 pages, one for the outside of the tag and one for the inside.
