WHAT WE DO

A few of our capabilities vis-à-vis hangtags: folding, stringing, loops, eyelets – and more!

Folding

M&F Stringing can fold trimmed, scored hangtags to finished size. Expert staff can fold all sorts of hangtags, like circles and die-cut shapes. We can also fold at right angles to fit lots of copy. Folded booklets and multiple-panel hangtags are possible. Difficult shapes and sizes are our specialty.

Stringing

Selection of materials is crucial for any project involving hangtags. One defining attribute is typically the string. The options that we offer are opportunities to make a tactile connection to a consumer. We can help do this with selection of colors, finishes, and textures.

Knotted Loops

With fulfillment projects, deadlines are deadlines. On rush orders, at the eleventh hour, knotted loops are available. This is a popular option for last-minute projects. This happens when hangtags cannot be sent to us for stringing. Ask us about our quick-ship options to help finish your project!

Eyeletting

Robust hangtags can incorporate metal eyelets. Metal eyelets not only enhance the appearance of hangtags, but also reinforce the hole. We stock the standard brass and nickel options. These finishes provide a gold or a silver finish. In addition to these two, matte black, antique bronze, and antique copper are available.

Hand Assembly

Most of our work involves mechanical stringing. We also perform hand-assembly work. This is for projects we cannot run on our stringing machines. We specialize in multiple-tag assemblies. Garment tags with specialty safety pins are another popular option. Ask us about what we can do for your special project!

Packing

Packing and shipping activities are essential. Our facility can contribute to the smooth functioning of any finishing operation. We offer a variety of different options for organizing, packing, and shipping your finished hang tags. Ask us about what we can do to help your project!
