Hang Tag Materials
Composite Materials – Rydin offers a variety of composite material combinations. The standard hang tag product line is made of a 25 mil composite material. It has the look and feel of a credit card. Graphics and text print clean and sharp, and the image is protected from scratching and scuffing due to the layers of laminate. To prevent premature fading, UV inhibitors are used in the outside layer. Our composite products are also available in 30 and 35 mil upon request. We also offer a holographic laminate for additional anti-counterfeit protection.
100# White Gloss Cover is a bright white, 10 point paper with a smooth finish. It works well for scratch-off hang tags, keepsake tickets, or stadium credentials. It can be enhanced with foil or hologram stamping.
110# White Index Paper is an uncoated paper. It is typically used for temporary hang tags when a low cost option is needed. It can be easily written on with pen, pencil or rubber stamps.
24 Point Card Stock is a heavy cover weight paper that is used when a more sturdy paper product is needed. It can be used for temporary hang tags that are required to last a little longer.
Polyethylene is a semi-rigid plastic available in thicknesses of 23, 35, and 75 mils. It can be laminated with Kaleidoscope or reflective materials for anti-counterfeit features. The 23 and 35 mil thicknesses work well for hang tags. The 75 mil is primarily used for towing signs.
80# White Gloss Cover is a destructible material that is often used for inside window decals. It has a smooth bright white finish making it an excellent choice for quality image reproduction. It is a great product for an attractive, yet secure window application decal.
Acetate is a clear, semi-destructible material used for inside window application. It has a permanent adhesive and a translucent liner. Do not use this material if you want the permit to be transferable.
Clear Vinyl with a permanent adhesive is a somewhat flexible, clear material that is typically used for window decals. It comes with an aggressive adhesive.
Clear Vinyl with a removable adhesive is a somewhat flexible, clear material that has a low tack adhesive, making it an excellent choice when the permit needs to be transferable. It is recommended over cling vinyl due to its stability and durability.
Static Vinyl or Cling Vinyl is a clear material that is used when an aggressive adhesive is not wanted. It’s perfect for temporary or short term decals because this material has NO adhesive and although it can be used as a transferable decal, it is not recommended. If a transferable permit is required, a clear vinyl with removable adhesive would be our recommendation.
White Vinyl is the most common outdoor material we use. It is a 4mil thick material that is somewhat flexible allowing it to fit to surfaces that are not totally flat. It is a good choice for the outside application of permits or bumper stickers.
Cold Weather Vinyl is also a 4 mil thick material. It is used for products that need to be applied in colder weather, as temperature can affect the time it takes adhesive to fully adhere.
Clear Polyester with a permanent adhesive is a very durable material that does not tear easily making it ideal for inside or outside applications.
Clear Polyester with a removable adhesive has a low tack adhesive, making it an excellent choice when the decal needs to be transferable. It is recommended over cling vinyl due to its stability and durability.
White Opaque Polyester is used for window decals that have printing on both sides. It is constructed so the print from one side does not show through the other side. This is typically used for membership decals or other signage that is applied to glass doors. It can have either a permanent or removable adhesive.
