What Are Different Materials Available in Hang Tag Strings?

The type of string used for hang tags is one of the most important decisions you make when designing a product. There are many types available today, each with its own pros and cons. In this article, we will discuss the common materials of strings used in hang tags and what they can do for you as well as some tips on how to choose which type is best for your product.

Polyester Strings

Polyester strings are perfect for hanging tags on clothes, bags, and other items. These strings have strong durability and can withstand the elements of weather. They are also easy to use as you only need one person in order to string them on your item.

These strings are available in different lengths ranging from 5-11mm depending on what type of customer you want to target with your product (clothes, bags, etc).

Cotton Strings

Cotton strings are the most common type of hang tag string. They’re made from 100% cotton and can last for years if you take care of them properly, but they won’t hold up as well in harsh weather conditions or low temperatures (e.g., below-freezing).

As with all types of hang tags, there are different sizes available for each color or design you choose to print on your tags. However, cotton hang tags tend to have less space between lines than other types do because their thickness isn’t as great at holding color well enough for longer-term use over time periods where exposure conditions change regularly throughout different seasons. So, they might leave their color or fade away.

Waxed Cotton Strings

Cotton is processed, waxed, and used to make Waxed Cotton Strings. They feel soft, which makes them perfect for clothing or bags. These strings can be found in various lengths and colors to complement your product. These strings’ colors won’t fade as quickly as those of pure cotton, making them suitable in high-quality products like apparel, belts, and other accessories.

Satin Tape Strings

Polyester satin tape strings are used in clothes, accessories, and other products. They are available as a satin ribbon or string. Satin tape strings are ideal for creating tassels on apparel items like hats, scarves, and purses because of their smooth surface appearance.

Hemp Strings

Hemp strings are a great choice for hang tags. Hemp is an eco-friendly product and also biodegradable, so it’s a good choice for your company’s sustainability goals. The hemp string will last for years because of its strength and durability, making it an ideal option for companies that want to create a lasting impact with their messages or branding materials.

These strings are also hypoallergenic; they won’t cause any allergic reactions in people who have sensitive skin or allergies to other materials like rubber bands (which can cause redness).


Hang tags are a great way to help your customers know where to find the products you have for sale. They’re also easy to use, recyclable, and cost-effective. The different materials of strings you looked at today can be used for different kinds of hang tags depending on what type you want. Polyester strings are better for affordable budgets; cotton for leather goods; waxed cotton strings for leather goods as well as clothing items like shoes or wallets; and satin tape strings which are more durable than others.
