Hang tags printed on uncoated 22 point thick card stock give your product line an elegant, professional finish. This bright white stock has an smooth finish that can be written on or stamped without smudging.
Hang tags represent your brand to the world, so choosing the right stock is a big decision and Clubcard Printing makes this choice easy.
Your custom hang tags are produced in square or rectangle sizes on a Hewlett Packard Indigo press using the most advanced printing technology to achieve consistent branding colors, vivid image reproduction and solid areas of coverage.
You can really customize your hang tags with hole drilling and optional rounded corners for a unique look.
Custom Size Hang Tags are available: please select the next largest size you see online that will fit your trim size. Supply your files at your trim size and be sure to indicate that trim size in your order notes.
Heavy Coverage? Think Twice
Heavy ink coverage can be problematic. When the cards rub together, the ink can rub off. Heavy coverage makes this more apparent. This can also be an issue for corner rounding, so we generally advise clients with heavy coverage not to round corners.
Small Fonts Aren't Good
The minimum recommended text size is 6pt. With any small text, if grey use a black ink only version; if black, use 100% K.
Thin Lines Aren't Good
Anything thinner than a hairline stroke (0.25") - even at 100% K may look choppy when printed due to Indigo print resolution.
Indigo Resolution Is Different Than Offset
There is a screen to the Indigo print which customers should be aware of if they're comparing to traditional offset printing.
Minimum Line Thickness Of 0.5pt
Try to keep all line weights for graphics over 0.5pt. Anything under that can break up in the texture of the stipple.
For Small Elements, Simple Color Builds Are Better
When working with small elements like lines or text, a simpler color build is best to avoid misregistration. For example, 0/0/0/90 is a much better build than 20/20/20/40.
