Swing Tags: What Are They?
Swing tags are essential in the merchandising of clothing. They are small tags that are attached to the hanger or the garment itself, and typically contain product details, such as brand, size, material, and care instructions. Think of them like the luggage tags you attach to your suitcases; in the same way they help you identify your cases, a quality swing tag can help your customers identify you.
In a traditional shop environment, swing tags can be barcoded to provide information on where an item is to be displayed, as well as stock levels and availability.
Most importantly for a new clothing business, quality swing tags create a sense of professionalism and authenticity, letting your customers know they have purchased an item from a premium range.
Things to Think About When Buying Swing Tags
It may feel like the possibilities are endless when it comes to product swing tags: manufacturers offer countless sizes, shapes, colours and finishing, so it’s not unusual to feel a bit overwhelmed! We will get into more detail about common print options later, but at JMF Group, we always like our customers to consider the following things first:
My Swing Tags and Me
Personalised swing tags are an excellent way to finish off the look of your clothing line and give your business that extra boost of professionalism. They add an air of exclusivity to your products and let customers know that they’re buying from a store with high-quality standards. Think about what image you want your tags to convey. Is your clothing bright and fun, or more fashion-focused? Consider how your tags might reflect this…
How Much Is Too Much?
Swing tags can be a cheap and easy way to add authenticity to your product. However, we encourage you to think about how many you need for your tag order. What are your most common sizes? What are your most common colours? Be conservative when deciding what you need, or you’ll be crossing out those size XXXL labels by hand when you run out of size Medium!
What to Look For in Printed Swing Tags
With these considerations fresh in your mind, it’s time to start thinking about the finishing options you may choose for your tags:
Printed swing tags are commonly produced from paper or cardstock. You need to decide on paper type and paper weight when choosing your swing tags; you don’t want anything too cheap, but—especially if you’re a new company—you also want something that represents great value. Try to find a balance.
What size do you think will work best with your products? Some common sizes include 60mm x 35mm, 85mm x 55mm, and 100mm x 60mm, but—again—you need to find tags that are right for you. Are you using your own artwork? If so, will it fit on that 85mm x 55mm tag..? Use design templates to help you out.
The most common shapes for printed tags are oval, rectangle, round and square, though at JMF Group we like to be flexible. Looking for a hexagon with square corners? Let us know, and we’ll see what we can do.
Artwork and Print Effect
For some businesses, basic printed text is enough for a swing tag; for others, a logo or elaborate artwork speaks more to their customer base. If you want the final printed product to really impress, you could go for elaborate print effects, such as foiling or embossing.
There’s no swing without string, so think about the kind of material which will go best with your hang tag design. Popular options include white cotton, coloured cotton, ribbon, and twisted paper, but take note of what will look best against the items in your shop.
Last but not least, make sure to check how eco-friendly your choices are before proceeding with the print job. For progressive and socially-conscious brands, a poor choice here could lose you a customer!
