Swing tags, otherwise known as hang tags, are an external tag that is hung or tied onto the outside of a product or piece of clothing. As this label type is not stitched to or ironed-in to the merchandise itself, swing tags are temporary labels that can easily be removed from a garment or product before use. This label type is slightly larger than other fixed clothing labels, making it perfect for displaying your logo or any important information you want to give extra visibility to (product size info, washing instructions, fabric composition, etc.). Typically, swing tags are made from cardboard for an extra durable finish, but it's not unusual to see other materials used too, such as leather. They are normally fixed to garments using a piece of string, thread, or plastic wire. Swing tags can also be used as, custom price labels.

What Exactly Are Swing Tags?
What Are Swing Tags Made From?
The Dutch Label Shop hang tags are made from top quality Bristol board, although this kind of clothing label can be made from an array of different materials, such as paper, leather, fabric, or even wood! Our Swing tags come with a hole already punched out for your convenience and you can also choose whether you'd like us to pre-attach with cord or alternatively use your own.
What are Common Uses of Hanging Tags?
If you're looking to make a visual impact, swing tags are a great tactile option to show off your brand and product. Make your merchandise shine with an exciting & eye-catching hanging tag. You can fill these labels with anything you want, such as information about the origin of the product, the brand, where it was made, how to care for it, the materials used, etc. Swing tags are also more versatile than their permanent label counterparts, since they can be attached and removed from any item without leaving a trace.
If you're looking for a more subtle finish, perhaps our custom name labels or iron-on clothing labels are the ones for you, but if making a statement is the objective, try one of our t-shirt labels, practical quilt labels or durable washing labels.

Make sure your brand stands out with a unique & custom-made clothing label. Our professional-quality, 280gsm Bristol board Swing Tags are 100% customisable and the perfect retail-ready accessory for taking your products to the next level.

What Else Can Swing Tags be Used for?
Handbags, garments, exercise mats... the options are infinite! Traditionally, Swing Tags are used to attach key sales information to a product or merchandise on display on the shop floor, but they can also make a really nice finishing touch to more personal items, such as labels for presents or even to tell a story about a hand-made creation. Or, if you feel like your house or room needs a bit of 'Marie Kondo' style love, why not use a hanging tag to clearly label storage boxes, drawers, or other similar items for organisational bliss.

Top Tips For Designing Quality Hang Tags
We've put together a few best practices to follow to create the perfect bespoke Swing Tag.
Top tip 1: add important content to your swing tag
Make sure you include all the most important content for your intended audience and label use. This could include (but is not limited to) clothing sizes, colour information, pricing, logos, or your social media handles, depending on your individual marketing approach. Why not add a small bio about your company or your brand story? Or, tell your customers the do's and don'ts for cleaning and looking after the product?
Top tip 2: keep it simple
There is no single approach when it comes to designing your hanging tags. Keep it simple with minimal text, a blank back, and focus on eye-catching images or logos for a visual effect, or make the most of the extra space by adding important details that wouldn't normally fit on smaller label types.
Top tip 3: use a swing tag to boost your brand
Swing tags are the perfect label for boosting your brand and can be used as the "cherry on the top of the cake" to add that wow factor to your creations. And last but not least, remember that your swing tag will be one of the first thing your customers will see when browsing your items for sale, so make it count with a popping and memorable custom design.
