Chipboard letterpress hang tags.

We're excited to show off these die-cut hang tags for Ps&Qs, a great fashion store in Philly. If you're in Philly, check them out at 820 South Street. Or visit their website to order online: http://www.psandqs.com.

These were printed on 100% recycled tan kraft chipboard with vegetable-based black ink. Once they were printed, we die cut the tags with round corners and a punch so each tag is exactly the same with perfectly rounded corners.
