Well then, this is just the right place for you to come to. Read on and improve your customer experience with plastic hangtags and how to design them to suit your business!


Why choose plastic clothing tags?

Plastic clothing tags for starters, are able to withstand a harsh environment as opposed to other materials.

As it is common knowledge, plastic is not good at absorbing moisture as opposed to paper or kraft. Therefore, a plastic tag would have your product and brand information intact even if touched with a wet object or exposed to a moist environment.

On the durability score, plastic clothing tags pass quite the test with an average score of 4.25. This is for chemical, abrasion, heat and UV/outdoor categories. Clearly, plastic clothing tags are the perfect option for your clothing brand!
