NEW METALLIC TAG STRINGING COLOURS

What’s new in the world of Tag Stringing and Hang Tags? What we’re noticing in the Tag Stringing market is a growing demand for a wider range of colours and styles of string. I’m showing two shiny metallic options here. While gold and silver are standard options now, more metallic string colours are being added to the market regularly.

Part of the increased demand for more string colours is because of the uptick in the Tag Stringing market. Retail purchases continue to increase and companies are continually having to find ways to make their products stand out on store shelves.

PMC High Die Shaped Books

PMC High Die Shaped Books

This week, the focus is on books that are PMC / High Die Shaped into any shape—baby bottle, animal, fruit, etc. All the books shown in the video started out as typical perfect bound books. The Wire-O books shown above were bound, had the spine cut off and were Wire-O punched. Then, the books were PMC / High Die Shaped and then the wire was applied.

The ice cream book above started as a simple perfect bound book, which was shaped by our PMC machine.

The rivet book shown above also started as a perfect bound book. The spine was cut off, had a hole drilled, went into a PMC / High Die Shaping machine and then, finally, had the rivet inserted.

The board books below were bound in the normal way, then simple PMC /high die shaped as pictured.

Loose Hang Tags

Loose Hang Tags

Tag Stringing is a product we do regularly, producing millions each year. We do it automatically using machinery that punches a hole, feeds the string through the hole, and then ties a knot. Tag Stringing produces a tag that has a closed ended loop that can be hooked over or stretched around a product (e.g. bottles, toys, etc.).

The image above shows traditional Hang Tags with a tied knot.

The two images above show the same Hang Tag with traditional and loose ends.

The image above shows how we loop the string through the Hang Tag, so the string stays attached while leaving the ends loose.

Loose Hang Tags

The application for Hang Tags is growing, but for some items, like a carton handle or clothing label, how do you attach a closed loop? That’s when a client needs what we call Loose Hang Tags or Tag Looping. This process leaves the two ends untied, ready for the end user to tie the tag around an item. This is a new service we offer, and we can do it automatically!

If your client needs a traditional Hang Tag or a Loose Hang Tag, make us your first call!

Tag Stringing

Tag Stringing has been around for a long time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t keep innovating and adding new processes to our customers. We’ve recently added some NEW Tag Stringing innovations like the ability to string plastic tags, tags with extra-large holes and tags with eyelets! Our machinery also enables us to offer tag stringing for these types of tags:

  • Paste bound booklet tags
  • Saddle-stitched booklet tags
  • Miniature or oversized tags
  • Diecut tags

The hole in the tag above is extra-large. This isn’t a problem for us! Give us a call if your customer is asking for an unusual tag.

We can also do tag stringing with eyelets. This increases durability and ensures the string doesn’t tear through the tag.

The above two images show a plastic tag that we can now string. Plastic tags are a great option for outdoor environments or where they need to be water-resistant or waterproof.

We can string tags that are die-cut into virtually any shape.

String comes in numerous colours and can be matched to the tag graphics.
