Simple tag

 

There are a few things we like about the next hang tag idea. First, the “Kraft” appearance has this simplistic organic feeling that brings a natural element. Second, the layered element of combining two sizes of tags together brings more attention to the medium and carries a more artistic vibe.

When designing hang tags, there are two other essential components to consider – the drilled hole and the hanging mechanism.

Custom hang tags

 

At Printkeg, hang tags come in three sizes: 2×3.5, 2×4 and 2×6 and include drilled holes in the top center.
