Custom Hang Tags
Custom Hang Tags
Many artists sell merchandise outside the scope of traditional prints so we added custom hang tags that are designed with retailers in mind (ie: clothing, accessories, plushies, jewelry, and more). Hang tags are a great way to build your brand and add essential information to merchandise.
Custom Hang Tag Features
- Tags are double-sided
- Variety of card choices
- The drilled hole is included
- Custom sizes welcome
- We check art for quality
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.

Durable Card Stocks
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.
Enjoy whopping 18pt+ cardstocks available in some postcard sizes. Usually, the 18pt C1S cardstock is convenient for projects that require a glossy front and uncoated backside.
