The paper thickness of thick hang tags

The thicker the tag, the better the quality. Because the appropriate thickness of the hang tag can also prolong the service life of the tag. At the same time, it also reflects your brand positioning. High-end or close to the people? You can see it from a thick hang tag. But it’s not that the thicker the better. Because we mount the hang tag together with several sheets of paper. Then, we will use glue to fix them.

Therefore, it is not recommended to choose an ultra-thick hang tag. 1mm, 2mm, and 3mm paper thicknesses are most appropriate.

Likewise, the thickness of the hang tag also depends on the material, size, and application.

PU leather:1.2mm-1.4mm
Real leather:2mm
Microfiber leather:1.2mm
Zinc alloy:1.2-2mm

Thick hang tag Materials

Hang tags have many materials to choose from. Paper, leather, PVC, metal, canvas, lace fabric, etc. Paper or cardstock hang tags are more suitable for apparel. Plastic or metal hangtags may be ideal for durable daily goods.

Then, paper hang tags materials include: coated paper, white card paper, black card paper, kraft paper, special paper, recycled paper, or tracing paper.

The conventional thickness of the coated paper is 250g, 300g, 350g, 400g, 700g. If it is higher than the normal thickness, such as 700g, the factory will use two pieces of 350g paper to mount it into 700g.

One side smooth is single-coated paper. While double-sided smooth is called double-coated paper. In general, we mostly use double-coated paper.

The natural color of coated paper is slightly beige. Because its paper surface is smooth with good gloss. Therefore, the color of the printed logo or pattern is rich and bright. And the picture has a certain 3D effect. But, the stiffness of paper is not as good as that of white card paper.

In order to protect the logo or printing on the surface, we usually cover the surface with matte film, glossy film, or varnish.


If you want a 100% recyclable coated paper hang tag, then we do not recommend you add film, just varnish it.

The texture and feel of black card paper are similar to white card paper. They are fine, strong, and thick paper. At the same time, they have good folding strength, so they are very suitable as thick hang tags.

If you want a black hang tag, you can choose a black card paper hang tag or a full-printing black coated paper. Since the black cards themselves are black, they are also black when viewed from the side. But, if it is coated paper with a full-printed black color, then its sides are white.

The most suitable processes on the black card paper hang tags are: hot stamped gold/silver/rose gold and UV.

White card paper is as strong and thick as black card paper. It has good folding resistance and a smooth surface. However, its surface is not as smooth as coated paper.

White card paper is stiffer and thicker. Its surface looks a little rougher than coated paper. But from a distance, it looks like coated paper.

Kraft paper includes brown kraft paper and white kraft paper. The kraft paper has high tear strength. Therefore, they are ideal for use on thick hang tags, shopping bags, and envelopes, etc.

Kraft paper hang tags are suitable for single-color or two-color printing and uncomplicated color designs.

The processes on the kraft paper hang tags include: offset printing, screen printing, UV, embossing, debossing, hot stamping, local lasering, etc;

When we use tracing paper to make hang tags, we often add a paper hang tag with them to make a complete set. Its material is relatively thin and has a translucent frosted appearance.

The normal grammage of tracing paper is 135g, 180g. So, it’s not suitable for making thick hang tags. But, the paper hang tags integrated with it can be made thick.


The special paper itself has certain colors or textures. These textures and colors cannot be achieved through subsequent processes. And the special paper hang tag looks very unique and textured.

Why choose thick hang tags? Why do many clothing brands particularly favor thick hang tags?

Maybe thickness is not the only factor that determines its quality or durability. The materials used, printing and finishing techniques, color, and design can also affect its overall appearance. But, the thickness of hang tag is important for branding and marketing.
