Making Your Own Product Hang Tags

Make your own simple no fuss header cards...while adding pizzaz to your handmade products!

1. design your header card in photoshop or other photo editing program (or hire a graphic designer to design one for you), make sure they fit into whatever downloadable template your printing company uses (it's a bear to edit it to fit later, you may have to start all over again, not fun).

2. order up some business size cards from your favorite printing company.

3. fold your new 'business card' in half and staple it around a necklace's chain, or most business cards fit perfectly folded over a 2" plastic baggie, staple away!

You can also punch a hole on top to hang your product from a display (be sure to allow room for this above your main images so you don't end up punching a hole in your logo!).

This will give your product a more polished professional look and only cost a few pennies more per item, plus it's uber fun to shift pics around in photoshop and dyo (design your own)!

Hmmm, I've been giving thought to using these and have been looking into the whole poly tubing thing but I'm not sure about it yet. Thanks for posting this - Jessica is right you ARE a powerhouse!
