Foil Swing Tags
For a more luxurious and eye-catching finish to your tag design, choose our personalised foiled swing tags and add a dazzling touch of shine. Metallic foil tag printing can be used for garment labels, gift wrapping, retail packaging, advertising and so much more.
While clothing tags and price tags are two of the main reasons to use bespoke foil swing tags, there are many others. Swing tickets can be used to offer gift wrapping at checkout for customers buying for someone else.
This will not only give the original customer a great buying experience but the receiver of your product will also be exposed to your design on your custom foil printed swing tags.
Foil Swing tags as they are known in the UK, or hang tags in the US, were originally created so retailers could display the price, size and other information on their products. Step into any clothing store on the high street and you’ll be inundated with a range of custom swing tags adorned with the brand’s logo and any information needed to push a customer to make the purchase.
Foiled swing tags can also be used to showcase information like your website, or to cross-sell goods by highlighting matching collections. Alternatively, why not use them to bring attention to sales and special offers in-store?
As well as our range of standard swing tags, we offer custom tag printing with metallic foil. Our foil hang tags can be ordered in two shapes, both 85mm x 55mm, one with regular square corners and the other with shaped corners at the top. You can then choose from two foil types: silver foil swing tags or gold foil swing tags. All our foil tags are printed single or double-sided on 350gsm silk stock, supplied with string and include a drill hole.
Swings tags are labels that are used to attach to objects, predominantly retail products, using a drill hole and string or ribbon. They are widely used in the retail industry as clothing tags or price tags to display information or marketing details about an item, such as clothing size, ingredients and the retail price.
Also known as swing tickets, hang tags, and sale tags, personalised product tag printing has a wide variety of benefits. Not only do they allow you to attach information easily to a product without the risk of damaging it, but they can highlight the professionalism of a company, help establish your brand identity and be the final straw in pushing a customer towards the sale.
Metallic foil gift tag printing is done much in the same way as our regular swing tags, but instead, they come with a foil within the design. Since they shimmer and catch the light in all the right places, foil tags are much more likely to draw the attention of customers. Adding subtle accents to your swing tag design can also create a buzz around your company and add a touch of class and luxury that may not be possible with a standard uncoated hang tag.
We create our foil swing tags using heat and solid foil colour to press your design into the card stock. The shimmery, metallic finish of the foil opens up a whole new world of design options for your brand identity. Our foiled swing tags are printed in a wide choice of colours and you are free to choose from the traditional silver and gold, along with rose gold, blue, purple, green and even a holographic foil. Perfect for making your design shine with our eye catching print finishing options.
We often recommend gold foil to match with darker-coloured designs while silver foil looks great against lighter designs.
Showcase your professionalism – Metallic foil product tags can make all the difference in showing a customer the quality and credibility of your brand. Rather than having the price and size scribbled by hand, you can display this and more with your own custom swing tickets. The professionalism of your printed product tags will ultimately reflect on the quality of the products themselves.
Secure a sale – Studies show that it takes only 30 seconds for a customer to decide whether they want to buy a product or not. To ensure you make the most of that time frame, provide the customer with everything they need to know straight away. Include the size, price, ingredients and more on the label so they’re not left wondering if it’s right for them.
Stand out from competition – When designed right, swing tags can be the finishing touch you need to make your product stand out from everyone else. These are especially great at this and are guaranteed to catch the eyes of customers as they browse the shelves with their unmissable shimmer.
Reinforce your brand identity – It’s important to make a good impression on a customer, whether they’re buying your products now or coming back to you in the future. If they see your branding printed in high quality on a custom-designed swing tag, they are much more likely to remember you. You can also include information like your website and social media channels on your personalised gift tags to extend your brand message even further.
Setting up your design right is very important for our printed hang tags whether you are going for our foil printing option or our non-foiled option. It is always best to check the size in the product specification box above to ensure you are set up to the correct size. Bleed is needed on all printed items and this should be 3mm on all edges. If you are unsure of how to set up your design to the right size feel free to download our downloadable blank templates as these have been set up correctly.
Please note we use a hot foil printing method which is different to the older embossing or foil stamping method. They still have the same elegance one would come to expect with luxury foil but without the huge set-up costs.
Designs should be in CMYK and there are some recommendations with regard to the foiled elements, these will ensure that you receive the best finish in your design. Font sizes we recommend should be no smaller than 10pt minimum and where you are using thin lines within your design 1pt minimum weight. You should send your design across as a PDF for the best results, with a separate file showing where all the foil is required. Ideally, this will be all coloured in the same colour with nothing else in the file. We ask the same for all of our foil and spot UV printing services.
It is this file that we use to make sure that the right elements within your design are highlighted correctly.
