1. The role of backpack HANG tags
Backpack hang tags can be printed with a company’s logo and brand name, which is a great way to showcase your brand. Some companies even print the photos of celebrity endorsers or models on the hang tags, which is a mini advertisement. This gives an image that is intuitive and plays a very good promotional role.
1.2 Information display
The backpack hang tag contains information on the backpack model, specifications, fabric composition, washing methods, precautions, barcode and so on. These are exactly what reflect the guiding role of the backpack hang tag. The barcode on the hang tag allows customers to check out quickly at the cashier.
1.3 Price information
Most backpack hang tags will have a price tag to make it easier for consumers to choose the backpack according to their budget. Here is another promotional tip from the merchant. Many merchants will put the price on the tag on the high side and then run promotions to give consumers a so-called discount. This is a disguised way of boosting sales of backpacks.
Some of the most expensive backpacks have anti-counterfeiting logos on their tags, which protect the rights of the consumer and the interests of the merchant.
2. Shapes and sizes of backpack tags
Backpack hang tags are highly customisable and therefore come in a wide range of shapes. Most backpack tags are a single rectangular shape, but some merchants may choose to put two tags on a backpack, a main tag and a secondary tag.
The size of a backpack tag is determined by the content to be carried on the tag. If you have a lot of content on your tag, you will need to choose a larger size. If the tag is just the brand name, bar code and price, a 2.75*1.375 inch tag will be sufficient.
