Eco-friendly Clothing Labels

What Can Eco-friendly Clothing Labels Do For Your Business?

Swing tags are becoming ever more popular as an alternative to bulky, plastic packaging. Custom printed swing tags can be used for anything: from labelling a bottle of wine, to acting as a gift tag, to providing ingredients for cosmetics!

With this in mind, why not consider using kraft paper for your swing tag designs? Kraft paper is eco-friendly as it is unbleached and recycled, as well as being fully recyclable and compostable after use. It has an artisan look which many find appealing. Our custom printing means that you can create any design imaginable and have it printed on your eco-friendly paper stock! Kraft paper does not go through a bleaching process, so has a natural brown hue. For best results, create a striking design in dark colours.

Kraft tags are ever popular with ‘cottage industries’ like food, candles, bath products, but can be used for just about anything. Consider using kraft paper for your gift tags, or even for special event wedding favours!

Custom recycled swing tag printing

If you’re very keen to create your custom swing tags in as eco-friendly a way as possible, but aren’t willing to compromise on the colour of your product, never fear!

Whereas Kraft paper is slightly brown in colour, our recycled tags are environmentally-friendly, with no compromise on the whiteness. Recycled tags are printed on 350gsm uncoated and recycled stock. The material is slightly porous, meaning you can write on them if desired, making them ideal for gift tags.

Eco-friendly clothing labels

Using swing tags as eco-friendly clothing labels is becoming a staple in the fashion and retail industries. Swing tags are small and inoffensive, meaning they won’t prevent the customers from seeing the clothing item in detail.

Use a kraft or recycled swing tag for your clothing labels. Not only will you be reducing your carbon footprint, but you can also save a lot of space in your stockroom: no need for bulky packaging.

And the swing tag can contain all the information you need on a clothing label: price, materials, care instructions, you name it! Use the reverse side of the swing tag to reinforce branding with a large scale logo or company message. We even offer perforated swing tags – allowing you to have a tear-off price section on your eco-friendly clothing labels, making them perfect gifts!

If you do choose to create your own artwork, when it comes to designing your environmentally friendly swing tags, there’s a couple of top tips to keep in mind…

  • Choose kraft or recycled paper stock to ensure a really eco-friendly product
  • If you’re going for kraft paper, remember that the paper stock has a naturally brown hue, so it’s best to choose darker colours.
  • Don’t forget to create two designs – one for the front and one for the back!
  • Remember there will be a small hole at the top of your swing tag to attach your labels or price tags to the product, so ensure no text encroaches on this space, or it may be lost in assembly.
  • Don’t forget to pick your elastic, string or metal connective material; choose from a wide range of colours and styles!
  • Your design can be uploaded at the checkout stage, or sent via WeTransfer, Dropbox or Drive.
