One of the most overlooked details in t shirts is t shirt tags. When I say tshirt tags, I am specifically talk about the tags hidden away on the inside of your shirt. The tshirt tag that never sees the light of day, and is usually an afterthought. So after coming across some incredibly creative t shirt tags that in my mind add value and personality to a brand I decided to put together a list of companies that do an incredible job with their custom tshirt tags.
Some of these companies use silk screen tshirt tags, providing maximum comfort and that non-itchy woven tag and some of these companies opt for the custom woven tag, which to me comes off a bit more professional. I even found one brand that uses both a woven and a silk screen tag for the ultimate combination of awesomeness! Whether you prefer the woven tag or the silk screened tag I think we all can agree that the t shirt tag is becoming an art of it’s own.
T shirt tag examples
Personally I enjoy screen printed tshirt tags the most and they are the most cost effective way to get custom tags done for your own shirts. Most screen printers will be able to do this option for you. I like screen printed t shirt tags because they are comfortable and often times woven tags itch and I cut them out anyway.
I’ve also seen a lot of great hang tags that are attached with a safety pin. Anyone can get something printed and attach it with a string and safety pin it to your shirts. Better yet buy a stamp and hand stamp your design on a hang tag.
Woven t shirt tags do look more professional in my opinion but they can get pricey, I wouldn’t suggest doing it for anyone starting out but if you want to add value to your shirts and make it more professional down the road these can be a great addition.
Tshirt tag design tip
Selling shirts at shows I realized it is important to have the size of the shirt on the top, or at least near the top. You don’t want to have to go searching through shirts and pulling down the collar to find the right size shirt on the tag. So think ahead and put this info near the top. Besides that, the sky is the limit.
