There are many options to consider when creating your custom tags and labels. To save time and provide you with the best results, consider these specifications when requesting a quote.
- What type of stock and/or color is going to be used for your tag? - We carry white and manila paper stock in 7pt (slightly thicker than computer paper), 10pt (slightly thinner than a manila file folder), 13pt (most commonly used, about the thickness of poster board), and 15pt (about the thickness of a business card).
Our standard colors (red, pink, orange, salmon, yellow, ivory, brown, buff, dark and light green, dark and light blue, lilac, and gray) are only offered in 13pt stock.
If you want your tag to really stand out, we carry 5 fluorescent colors (red, pink, orange, green, and chartreuse) that are only offered in 13pt stock.
If you need your tag to be a bit sturdier, we do offer 15pt wet strength stock in white, and Tyvek stock.
How will your tags or labels be used (indoor, outdoor)? - Will your tags be exposed to heat, moisture, food and/or chemicals? 13pt stock holds up well with everyday use. If you are looking for something a bit stronger, 15pt wet strength tags hold up well with a little moisture, though not submerged underwater. Tyvek is a very sturdy synthetic paper that does well with abuse and does not tear.
