How To Order

So you have an idea for an awesome tag—how do you turn it into reality? Start by patting yourself on the back, because you’re in the right place! Bringing awesome tag ideas to life is what we do. Follow these three simple steps and we take care of the rest:



Step 1: Design Your Tag

Select from our wide selection of stock tags in standard sizes (#1-8) and checkout online, or pick the color, stock, attachments and printing configuration you need and fill out a Quote Request Form. Submit the form and we’ll provide a custom quote based on your specifications.

Step 2: Upload your Artwork

After your order has been placed, it’s time to finalize the artwork for your tag. We offer free templates for standard tag sizes that you can download to help design your tag. Edit them in Adobe Illustrator and either upload your final artwork or email it to tags@printedtags.com.

For best results, please follow these artwork guidelines:

  • Use vector formats (.ai, .pdf or .eps)
  • Flatten all type or provide Windows-compatible font files (.ttf, .otf or .pfb)
  • Provide original files for logos and embedded graphics
  • Avoid screens, gradients and tight registration
  • Avoid low-resolution graphics and optimized files (.jpeg, .gif and .pict)
  • Use layered documents or separate files for multi-color artwork
  • Leave ⅛” margins for printing, unless using bleeds

Don’t have vector artwork? No problem—we can typeset almost anything except logos, and there is no charge for artwork setup with your paid order.

For typesetting, follow these steps:

  • Submit any logos as separate high-resolution files
  • Provide legible scans of any samples you want us to reference
  • Provide a Word document of all text to be printed

If you placed an order but do not have any artwork or samples, you may sketch your design ideas on a printed Tag Templates and fax it to 888.848.6677.

Submit your design files on our Upload Artwork page and we’ll take it from there!

Step 3: Proof

Before your tag goes into production, we will send you a PDF proof of what the finished product will look like. If everything is correct, you’ll simply sign the proof and return it to us. If adjustments need to be made, mark the changes on your proof and we’ll get them done quickly. You will then receive a revised proof for final review and approval. The proofing process is important to ensure that your tags turn out exactly how you want them.

Once your proof is approved, sit back and relax as we print your tags. Completed tags will be carefully boxed and shipped to your designated shipping address. If you require drop shipping to a customer, please specify that on your order and we’ll be happy to do so. We can also do split shipments. Our normal lead time is five to seven business days, but if you need tags faster than that we will do our best to meet your deadline, with no rush charge! For more information about shipping, please see our Shipping Policy.
