Durable Card Stocks Available For Custom Hang Tags
16pt Gloss Card
This shiny card is subtly thicker than the 14pt stock. The further rigidity prevents folds and creases. Additionally, colors appear extra vivid and glossy due to the stunning UV coating.
16pt Matte Card
The matte 16pt variant exudes professionalism and high quality. The colors in your artwork appear a little muted for a sophisticated, subdued effect. Ballpoint pens with oil-based ink and permanent markers write best on this surface.
We are facing random intervals of paper shortages that may require substitutions. You will be notified and given options via email if your order is affected.
18pt CS1 Card
Custom Hang Tags media options may include this ultra-durable card stock "coated" or "UV coated" (super glossy) on the front and uncoated on the back for convenient writing purposes.

Learn More About Printing Custom Hang Tags

Four Distinct Card Options
Gloss (16pt / UV Coated) - This first option is a thick card option beautifully UV coated on both sides for a super shiny finish. The UV coating also acts as an extra layer of protectant.
Matte (16pt / No UV Coating) - Reach the same density as the gloss option but on a dull matte card for a flatter finish and without UV coating.
Matte Card (18pt / UV Front Only) - We offer this more durable option that showcases a super shiny UV-coated front but a flat backside.
Kraft Card (18pt / 100% Recycled) -Kraft has natural fibers and subtle flecks promoting an organic appearance. The stock is 100% recycled, advancing its eco-friendly appeal. You can also white ink for added "pop" to your designs (a mask file is required).
Metallic Pearl (14pt) - This media is an unusual and unique 14pt stock that glistens in light when viewed from different angles.
Please note that Kraft cards come as 3.5" x 3.5" not 3" x 3." The size will automatically be changed by our staff. This change does not occur on other card stocks.

Generally, custom sizes are welcome. There are limitations based on the desired product. You can order in quarter-inch intervals for many smaller prints, archival cards, and large posters. Additionally, you can customize banners in one-inch intervals. If you would like to discuss your project requirements, please contact us.
✓ Our Focus on Archival Media
The giclee process requires specialty printing paper designated as archival. Smaller prints like Custom Hang Tags are generally more cost-efficient printed on a press. Unlike most online commercial print companies, we harness archival media engineered for retail art. The intent corresponds with the giclee style to reproduce artwork accurately.
✓ Print Multiple Files for Less
You can print multiple files per quantity, but there are limitations. For Bookmarks & Tickets, you can print up to five different designs per quantity as long as the print size is 8" x 8" or larger. For smaller prints, such as postcards, you can only print one design (which may be single or double-sided).
