Holes and Reinforcements
Industrial hang tags are typically reinforced with either fiber patches or metal eyelets to help ensure that they will not be separated from the item for which they are affixed. Because of this, the industry has adopted standard hole sizes of 3/16” and 3/8” to accommodate standard fiber patches in the colors brown and white, and to accommodate the metal eyelets.
For smaller retail hang tags that don’t require reinforcements, we typically just size the hole to accommodate the particular string being used while ensuring maximum productivity in our stringing operation.
