Custom Hang Tags for Asset Tracking


  • Custom hang tag construction doesn't require tag to be affixed directly to the asset
  • Made of durable polyester material
  • Digital printing process provides for greater print capability with detailed logos or special designs
  • Thin profile, but rigid construction of customer hang tag resists bending and tearing
  • Double-sided registered option available

Our Barcode Hang tags are removable, reusable solutions for a variety of applications.

Barcode Hang Tags may be used for cold storage, asset control, personnel identification, logistics, work-in-progress, warehousing applications and more. The .003” polyester construction laminated to .010” white polyester keeps the profile of the tag relatively thin, yet offers excellent rigidity and resistance to bending and tearing.
