Rectangular Hang Tags


Custom hang tag printing that excites & informs customers.

Hangtag printing is more than an essential pricing tool. Custom hang tags can be utilized to inform customers about their purchase. Give comprehensive details about the product’s ingredients or provide any specific cleaning instructions. Rectangular hangtags have ample space & opportunity to tell your brand’s story. 

What Are the Most Popular Sizes for Hang Tags?

Choose from a wide array of rectangular sizes for your custom tags or clothing labels. Here are the three most popular choices among retailers:

  • 2”x 3.5” has the same dimensions as a standard business card. Ideal for both vertical and horizontal designs that highlight your logo.
  • 2” x 4” is slightly longer than the business card-sized hangtag. Explore adding details about your company to maximize the extra design space.
  • 2.5” x 2.5” is the closest shape available to a square. Its unique appearance instantly stands out as a price tag.

We also offer custom sizes if you have a specific preference. Just select “custom-size” on our online calculator then choose from a wide range of measurements.

What Is the Difference Between the Available Cardstock Options?

We offer three premium, durable cardstock materials that will build the credibility of your company and the luxury associated to your product.

14 pt. Cardstock

  • The standard material for other promotional tools like business cards
  • Ideal for double sided printing that applies matte, gloss, or high gloss UV coating
  • A writable, uncoated option is also available for one or both sides

16 pt. Cardstock

  • Extra weight elevates the elegance of your tag design
  • Coat both sides in protective gloss or smooth, readable matte
  • Recommended for informative custom clothing tags

17 pt. Cardstock

  • The thickest and most durable material
  • Print your design on one or both uncoated surfaces for an upscale feel
  • Perfect for custom tags that may be written on

What Are the Advantages of Each Coating Option?

Choose a coating that readily complements the durability and feel of the available cardstock materials.

  • Matte provides a subdued, smooth elegance and better readability for lengthier text.
  • Gloss gives a vibrant shine and brings out the details of every color. Ideal for tag designs with large images or graphics. 
  • High Gloss UV has a higher shine than the gloss and provides further protection from scratches and fades.
  • Uncoated side provides a writable surface and a premium feel to our heavier materials. 

Check out the Paper & Specs tab for more information on the cardstock and their corresponding coatings.

How Can I Customize the Hole in My Hang Tag?

Those who manually prep their hang tags for personalized deliveries or for retail events will greatly benefit from our customizable hole drilling options.  The 1/8” is the most popular hole size, but we also offer 1/4”, 3/16”and 5/16”.

Choose a location that will secure the hang tag and allow the customer to view the displayed information.

    • Top center works best on vertical designs.

Top Center


    • Top left or top right suits horizontally oriented hang tags.

Top Left or Top Right


    • Right center or left center gives emphasis to a central image or certain details on the price tag design.

Right Center or Left Center

Note: Strings are not included with the hole drilling feature.

What Should I Include in the Hang Tag Design?

Your design will depend on the hang tag’s main purpose. But it should still include branding elements specific to your company and its image.

  • Logo shifts the customer’s focus back to your brand.
  • The brand name provides further recall. 
  • Website address entices them to know more about your business.
  • Social media/other contact details for that instant, immediate connection.
