WHAT WE DO

Folding

M&F Stringing can parallel-fold your trimmed, scored tags to their finished size. M&F’s expert staff can fold all sorts of tags, like circles and die-cut shapes. We can also double parallel-fold in order to create accordion-fold booklets, or inward-folding multiple-panel tags. Odd and difficult shapes and sizes are our specialty.

String

The selection of materials is crucial for any tag project, but the most defining attribute is typically the string. The various options that we offer represent opportunities to make a tactile connection to the consumer in a retail environment. This can be achieved by selection of color, finish, and texture.

Knotted Loops

Deadlines are deadlines, and schedules tend to be unforgiving, particularly on short runs, or small orders. When there is not enough time to send a job to us for stringing, knotted loops are also available. This is a very popular option for last-minute emergencies, which is so often the case.

Eyeletting

A robust tag incorporates metal eyelets, which not only enhances the appearance of the tag, but also reinforces the hole. We stock the standard brass and nickel options, for either a gold or a silver finish. In addition to these, matte black, antique bronze, and antique copper are newly available.

Hand Assembly

Most of our work involves mechanical stringing, but we also perform hand-assembly work for projects outside the parameters of our stringing machines. We specialize in multiple-tag assemblies on one string, as well as tags with very long or very short loops that exceed the typical parameters of mechanical stringing.

Packing

We understand how packing and shipping activities are essential to the smooth functioning of any finishing operation. We offer a variety of different options for organizing, packing, and shipping your finished hang tags back to you, a fulfillment center or other facility, or even to multiple destinations, if needed.
