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. Contact us for more information on our metal eyelets, or to request samples!

DESIGNING FOR EYELETS

  • Our standard eyelets are 1/4″ OD (outer-diameter) or rather, 1/4″ from one end of the flange to the other.
  • The inner portion of our standard eyelet, or rather, the barrel, is 3/16″ ID (inner-diameter) and can accommodate any string that we offer.
  • The flange dimensions and clearances will be the information most relevant to the design of your hang tag.
  • Most of all, you will want to be sure that adequate space remains around the proposed location of the eyelet. Because the flange is wider than the barrel, we need to be sure to prevent our eyeletting process from obscuring any part of your copy.
  • Consequently, you may want to seek additional guidance on designing your hangtag. We invite you, therefore, to check our Design Guidelines for relevant guidance and information.

Folded Tags with Eyelets

Eyelets, when used on a folded tag, are a highly practical application. As seen in the image at left, the eyelet holds one folded end firmly closed, allowing the other end to be opened like a hinge. This style sees the most use with luggage or valet tags.
