Does any one in here make there own hangtags? If so how do they do it - What kind of printer do you also use. Also if anyone has heard of people making their own hangtags, please inform on how they have done so. What is the best kind of printer to use, and the paper you would use. I wouldnt want to use regular computer paper obviously. Any suggestions or comments would be great

Thanks in advance
I make all of my business cards and hangtags. It helps that I am an artist so the information I'm providing is from me creating all of my own artwork.

I am a stickler for quality but I can not aford the type of printer to provide me with the quality I feel that my artwork deserve. So I got an online print account with FedExKinkos. I create the artwork for my cards and hangtags an then email it to them, they print it with thier highly exspensive printers and I pick it up the next day. I like using the 11x17 10pt glossy card stock for my hangtags. I place as many 6.6 X 1.5 hangtags as possible on the print area. This cost me $2.75 per sheet. At 10 per sheet that is $.27 per hangtag. It really give it a professional finish. I also use Kinkos cutter when I pick it up. I use Corel mostly but you have to send the files in PDF.

27 cents per tag is pretty expensive.

You can create all the artwork and send it to a company that prints hang tags. Even with the shipping added, you can beat 27 cents. This is with glossy, great card stock, and a hole added for attaching.
I guess I should have asked if they are talking mass production or a small number of peices. I am creating mostly samples and some peices for street sales at this time.
