Hang tag printing is critical to success for many industries. Retail fashions, clothing and accessories all rely on hang tag printing to generate sales; but that’s not the only industry: businesses from tool retailers to electronic suppliers harness the power of hang tag printing to fuel revenue. With a little investigation, it’s not difficult to see why hang tag printing is critical to success for many companies.
Hang tag printing gets attention
When you have products that compete against many other products in the same retail zone, you need something to draw attention to your products above all else. In industries where many similar items are likely to be grouped together (such as black shirts or DVD players), hang tags play a vital role in drawing attention to your products.
To help your hang tags attract attention, try to design them so that they contrast against your product. Use large headline fonts and images when possible; or, minimize everything for an elegant feel and branded appeal. How you position your brand on your hang tags is up to your industry, your unique selling points and your target audience.
Hang tag printing projects an image
Especially in the clothing and fashion industry, but often just as true in many other industries, customers make purchases based on the image a product or brand projects. Thus, once you have your customers’ attention you have to demonstrate why your product matches their personal image and lifestyle. In a world of similar products, hang tags ring true again as a great way to separate your products from your competitors and position your brand in a positive light to motivate sales.
Hang tag printing spotlights features and benefits
Every marketer knows that features and benefits are important to closing sales, and hang tags can help you detail the benefits of using your product’s features easily and effectively. Think about it: a winter jacket can’t tell customers that it has a thin lining that is three times more cold-resistant than linings that are twice as thick. A hang tag could not only make customers aware of this, it can also lend credibility to your company and foster trust from your customers.
Hang tags motivate future sales
Finally, you can leverage hang tags to motivate future sales by including a perforated tear-off coupon for a later purchase – or even an immediate purchase in a retail store. This technique can be especially useful if you’re considering partnering with a complementary but non-competing company that shares the same customer base. All you have to do is put coupons for each other’s products on your products; good when a certain dollar amount is reached and redeemable with proof of purchase at your store (or theirs). It’s a great way to introduce your products to new customers, and it comes from a third-party they already trust. As you can see, with a bit of brainstorming and creativity you can turn hang tags into critical success factors for your business – practically overnight!
