When companies make a product, the hang tags are usually an afterthought. Sure, we add them to the list once we’ve completed everything else, but rarely are they a top priority.
However, custom hang tags made from water soluble board stock have more importance than we realize. Many businesses that overlook them miss out on an important detail that could sway buyers into purchasing their product.
The Little Details
When customers browse through products, one of the first things they’ll check is the hang tag. Having a well-thought-out hang tag shows attention to detail and can even add flair to your product.

With the fashion industry turning more and more green, we need to show our customers we care about the environment not only because it is the right thing to do but also because it reflects positively on our brand.
Since customers might base their final decision on the tag, it’s imperative companies put more thought into them. Water soluble custom hang tags have other advantages, too, such as:
Easy disposal: Removing traditional hang tags can be tedious. When pairing a water soluble board stock with a water soluble thread, the tag will simply dissolve by itself.
Eco-friendly: When designing an environmentally friendly hang tag, it is important to consider all aspects of the product including the inks that are used. Environmentally friendly water soluble inks are ideal for printing logos and barcodes on water soluble hang tags.
Environmentally sustainable: Studies estimate that billions of trees are cut down each year, and much of this resource goes to waste. It is important to consider using materials that are sustainably sourced and replenished, such as water soluble board stock which is comprised of FSC Certified wood pulp.
Reduce waste: SmartSolve water soluble board stock is readily biodegradable and approved for home composting according to ASTM D6868 standards. Thus, this bio-based material will fully biodegrade without leaving a trace of packaging behind.
Even if every other aspect of your product is marketed flawlessly, the wrong hang tag can easily convey the wrong message. By investing in a quality, environmentally friendly hang tag, you help people view your brand in a positive light.
