5 Ways Custom Hang Tags Captivate Buyers

In a competitive marketplace, captivating custom hang tags can help close a sale. Customization and specialty print can ensure a hang tag becomes truly memorable. From lively 4-color print to foil stamping, embossing/debossing, or special die-cut shapes, custom-printed hang tags can help elevate your brand. Here are 5 ways that custom hang tags can captivate buyers.

1 Custom hang tags can appeal to a buyer’s sense of touch

Double-thick hang tags are all the rage because experienced hang tag printers know that it’s all in the feel. Rounded edges, embossing or debossing, or a special stock can all add a unique feel or texture to any product hang tag.  Similarly, soft matte lamination goes the extra mile by providing a soft or velvety feel that is addictive to the touch.  It’s a riveting way to help consumers remember a special brand or product.

2 Metallic foil hang tags provide a striking visual 

While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone loves to see the shimmer of printed metallic foils on a tag dangling from a retail product. Metallic foils are used to highlight brand logos and display intricate designs. Foil can also be used as luxurious accent edging on thicker tags. Undoubtedly, foil-printed hang tags are ideal for showcasing high-end clothing and accessories, specialty foods and beverages, beauty products,  perfumes, and more. The elegance and appeal of a luxurious gold foil are undeniable and always inspire a closer look at the product it represents.

3 Playful shapes to draw the eye

Think beyond squares and rectangles when it comes to creating inspiring custom hang tags. A playful shape on a printed swing tag not only draws attention but can also reflect the uniqueness of a brand. Imagine catching a glimpse of a bone-shaped hang tag on a pet toy, the cut of a women’s silhouette used as an intimate apparel hang tag, or a bottle-shaped swing tag dangling from a  bottle of flavored vinegar. Clearly, playful shapes such as the ones mentioned above are sure to grab attention and make a consumer take notice of the product it represents. The hang tag print experts at Corcoran Printing have the die-cut capabilities to help you introduce a bit of fun or edginess in shape to your next retail hang tag.

4 Embrace minimalism for certain brands/products 

Less is definitely more when it comes to certain brands and the products they represent. Clean, earthy tones and neutral colors are ideal for use on custom-printed hang tags for organic or natural foods, natural health and beauty, and organic household products. Without a doubt, hang tags that are both subtle and chic can embrace the mood image of a particular product.

5 Custom hang tags can educate your audience 

Finally, a well-thought-out hang tag is so much more than just a marketing tool or packaging vehicle. In addition, it can serve to inform and educate buyers. Sharing information about a brand, its mission, and beliefs, as well as educating about a particular product’s features and uses, are all beneficial to a potential buyer. For example, if your product is organic, you can educate buyers on the benefits of using an organic product. Providing a bit of valuable education on a retail hang tag can help build trust between a company and its customers and can motivate a sale.
