How to Get the Hang of Hang Tag Design

In other words, make sure that your next hang tag goes beyond being a simple marketing tool.

Finding unconventional ways to market your small business can be an amazing way to maintain connections with your customers. That’s why using hang tags can be more effective and useful than you might think. Here are some great ways to design them and get the most out of your investment

Using Only a Few Tags 

There’s a reason why the saying “less is more” exists. If you overwhelm your customers with too much information and clutter, it will make them less likely to engage. That’s why you should only use one or two hang tags on a single item at a time. Only using one is best, unless you need to have two. Compare using a hang tag on a door into a hotel room as opposed to hanging them on a clothing rack in a store. One could be advertising room service pizza while the other is confirming the authenticity of the fabric being used on the clothes. 

Educate Your Customers 

Take the time to think about other ways to engage with your audience, especially when it comes to interacting with your customers. In other words, make sure that your next hang tag goes beyond being a simple marketing tool. Use it to educate your customers and provide them important information, especially when you have switched to shipping items through online orders instead of in-person purchases. Include the name of your company, its associated website, phone numbers, and email addresses. Care instructions and coupon cards for future purchases are also a good way to boost customer loyalty, even if you don’t have a true membership card program in place just yet.  

Keep It All Simple

Strive to keep everything as simple as possible. Keep the text minimal and avoid being long-winded. If your customers wanted to read a novel, then they would just do that. Emphasize the importance of your products, give your customers the information they need, and move on. 

Consider the Copy 

Finally, consider the copy you want to include on your hang tags. Be clever and let your imagination run free. Just because you need to keep things simple doesn’t mean they need to be boring as well.
