5 Simple and Efficient Tips for Properly Tagging Your Clothing Supply to Add that Professional Touch 

Tags and labels are an excellent way to provide your clothing designs with a professional touch. However, attaching price tags can be a challenging task. Done wrong, you’ll end up damaging your clothes, and while simple stickers might seem like a good option, they fall off easily or get shuffled around, making a real clothing tag crucial to your business.

There are several different techniques to professionally tag your clothes. Whether you’re running a retail business or need to price clothes for your next garage sale, here are a few smart, proven, and effective ways to tag your clothing properly.

Use a Standard Tagging Gun

A tag gun is the standard option for tagging your clothes and is effective for normal weight fabrics such as cotton and denim. To use a tag gun, first slide the lock lever on the gun forward. Then, insert the needle and drop the round edge of the fastener into the guide. Once done, remove the guard, gently squeeze the trigger to test the gun, and attach the price tag.

For tagging accessories such as belts, ties, bibs, socks, hair bows, bagged toys, etc, first place the items inside a clear plastic bag, then tag the item through the plastic. This will allow the price tag information to be visible without the customer having to open the bag.

Utilize a Safety Pin

Another way to tag your clothes is by utilizing a safety pin. This is an excellent method for moments when you’re short on resources and need to tag your clothes quickly.

All you need to do here is stick the safety pin through both the care and price tag, then settle the price tag on top. Once done, shift the safety pin so it’s nested away behind the tags. In case the item doesn’t have a care tag, place the pin against a strong side stitch.

Make Your Own Hang Tag

For a home made solution, create your own hang tags using twine and a hole punch. First, punch a single hole in the center of the price tag. Once done, cut 8-inches of twine and slowly thread it through the punched hole in the tag. To connect the price tag to the clothing, you can either tie the twine through the care tag or simply thread the price tag through a button hole.

Stick the Tag on the Adhesive Label in Front of the Clothing

Stickers are perfect for selling clothes at yard sales and flea markets. For an effective, professional look, stick a blank label on the care tag to ensure your tag doesn’t get removed. Your labels can be pre-printed with prices, or alternatively, left blank and filled in with a Sharpie or other marker. Make sure any numbers or letters are written out legibly.

Use Security Tags

If you’re running a large retail business, you should consider theft as a hazard for your inventory. Security tags are a quick way to prevent theft while providing neat tags for your clothes. 

Security tags are specially designed to latch safely on clothing and must be removed with a specialized tool kept at the register. Security tags also contain sensors that can track clothing, and alert you when a product leaves the store unauthorized. These tags are best used in retail for expensive items such as handbags, coats, and shoes.
