Die-Cut Tags A Fun Adventure for Young Artists
Olivia William August 2, 2023

Have you ever noticed those cool hanging cards on clothes, toys, or gifts that look like they’ve jumped out of a storybook? These are called tags. Although there are different hang tags for printing, creating them is like going on an exciting treasure hunt. Let’s go on an adventure together and learn how to make your very own personalized tags!

Planning and Preparation

Defining Our Tag’s Mission and Who It’s For

Just like a superhero needs a mission, our tag also needs a purpose. Are we making a tag for our toy shop or a label to make our friend’s birthday gift even more special? And just like superheroes need to know who they’re protecting, we need to know who will look at our tag. Understanding our mission and audience will guide us in our adventure.

Looking for Cool Ideas

Next, we’ll become detectives, hunting for design clues in tags we already like. We’ll find them in our favorite clothes or our most-loved toy shop. That will give us ideas for our tag design.

Sketching Our Idea

Now that we have our mission and ideas, it’s time to sketch! We’ll draw out our tag design like a treasure hunter draws a map. Don’t worry about perfecting it now; it’s just a draft!

Keeping It Simple and Clear

Furthermore, our design must be simple and straightforward, like a superhero’s emblem! We don’t want people squinting or scratching their heads, trying to figure out what our tag says or shows.

Picking Our Art Tools 

In addition, We get to decide what color our tag will be, what style of lettering (or ‘font’) it will use, and what pictures (or ‘graphics’) it’ll have. It’s just like choosing the color of our superhero’s costume, their superpower, and their secret gadget!

Making Sure It’s Easy to See and Read 

Our tag’s mission and any critical information must be easy to see and read, like a superhero’s name on their costume. You can also use custom boutique price tags to price your items.

Deciding Our Tag’s Size and Thickness 

Our tag’s size and thickness need to be just right. It shouldn’t be so big that it gets in the way or so thin that it gets torn easily. It’s like picking the right size shield for our superhero!

Using Different Shapes 

We can also play around with different shapes for our tag to make it more fun and eye-catching, like a superhero’s unique costume.

Adding Functional Elements 

We could add features like slits or holes, so our custom die-cut hang tags can hang on things or fold in specific ways. These are like our superhero’s hidden gadgets!

Testing Our Design 

Next, we make a test version of our tag to ensure everything looks and works as we want, just like superheroes test their new gadgets.

Making a Prototype 

Furthermore, our prototype tag is like a life-size model of our superhero. It helps us see how our title looks and feels before making lots of them.

Getting Feedback and Adjusting 

We can then ask friends, family, or teachers what they think about our tag, like how a superhero listens to their team. Their feedback can help us make our label even better!

Picking a Printing Partner 

However, Just like a superhero has a trusted sidekick, we need a reliable printing partner to help us produce our custom die-cut tag printing. They’ll use their special machines to print our labels just as we designed them.

Preparing the File and Checking 

Before we print lots of tags, we need to recheck everything. It’s like a superhero checking their gear before a big mission.

Doing Quality Checks 

We’ll do quality checks while our tags are made, just like a superhero watches over their city.


Creating tags is a fantastic adventure. We plan, design, check, and create something extraordinary. Perfecting everything might take a few tries, like any adventure, but that’s part of the fun!

But if you want someone else to create your tags, contact any tags and label manufacturer. They will help you design your titles just like you want. We’ll have a label that’s truly unique and tells its own little story. Now, let’s start our creating tag adventure!
