The following are the primary materials used in the manufacture of tags:
Tyvek tags are easy to write on and can be supplied in continuous form or as single labels. Ideal for outdoor use, they are chemical, water and tear resistant. We can flood coat white Tyvek to six standard colours (red, yellow, blue, green, pink and orange). The standard weight of Tyvek is 75 gsm although we also supply 105 gsm for a small extra charge.
This is a plastic (PE) laminate with paper on both sides. The tag prints like card, but you cannot tear it. It is covered plastic and is very popular where strength is essential but water resistance is not. The tags can be supplied in continuous form. They are also suitable for having slots put in and are easy to write on.
The paper manilla and pulp board tags tend to be used in industrial environments where simple print is required with stock control, examination and production. We can print these tags in up to four colours but the majority of customers print this type of tag in one or two colours.
Toughtag is a 200 micron non-tear plastic which is clay-coated to a give a very smooth matt finish which allows excellent print quality. Easy to write on, it has very high burst strength so it often requires no reinforcement on the hole.We also stock a 350 micron Toughtag. The material is suitable for die cutting or putting a slot in. It is water resistant and weather proof. Tags made from Toughtag can be left outside for months at a time. The base material is white and we can print 6 standard
