Tags are really important for my scarves. They set a tone and hopefully demonstrate my design priorities as a textile artist. I have been slowly transitioning to new hang tags since the winter. Shawn O'Hagan tipped me off about this great on-line printing company called Moo, originally based in London, UK, who now have a US shop. Their on-line ordering set-up is fantastic and makes it very easy to use your own photos for your cards. For my hang tags, I've ordered their "mini cards". I now have a garment tag for each line of scarves I make, plus an accompanying business card with all my contact info. The paper stock is lovely too: made from sustainable paper sources and very durable - hopefully meaning the customer will hold onto the garment care tag for years to come or pass the business card on to friends.
