Hang tags are a powerful, often underestimated tool to make sure you're servicing the right cars in the right order. The way you present this information can help keep you and your business efficient, so we believe in putting some careful thought into the design of the tag. Here are some of our top tips to help you create a design that will pop when you go to buy service hang tags.
The tag style is going to change a lot based on your needs, your budget, and the way the product is displayed. For instance, if your product is going to be outside a lot, the best service hang tags for you will be weather resistant ones, and that will involve some heavier materials.
Once you’ve chosen the materials, it’s time to design the tag. Make sure the size and shape of the tag complement the car. You want to make sure that the tag is large enough to be seen instead of getting lost, but it shouldn’t be so large that it's ugly and obtrusive, since your employees won’t want to be staring at ugly tags all day. You'll need to have similar ideas of balance when it comes to graphics to make sure the car number can be clearly seen and that the dealer employees get all necessary information. The color scheme should also draw the eye; not too dark or light, and there should be obvious contrast between the background and the text.
When adding text to your automotive service hang tags, you'll need to give serious thought to the readability in regards to the font style and size, but just as important is the information contained within. When it comes to text, less is more, and it’s usually best to just hit the main points. However, lots of people do want extra information on their hanging tags, so you can work in that information with smaller and less conspicuous text so it doesn’t distract or confuse anyone.
