How to Make Tags for Jewelry & Clothes

by Heather Leigh Landon; Updated September 26, 2017
Price tags can be handmade and tied to pieces of jewelry.

Price tags can be more than just a sticker put on an item or a hanging tag attached to a piece of clothing. A small business owner can price items and promote her business by using a price tag and business card combination. Business cards used as prices tags are a way to promote your jewelry or clothing boutique when attending trade shows, craft fairs or holiday expos.

Items you will need

  • Business cards
  • Address labels
  • Ribbon
  • Small safety pins
  • Hole punch
  • Tape
Step 1

Have your business cards printed on a sturdy cardstock paper. You can print the cards yourself from a home computer or you have the cards professionally printed. A business card should include your business name, phone number, store location, email address and website.

Step 2

Print price labels using a label making program on a computer. Set up each label to have a line printed with the “Item Number,” “Size” and “Price.” You can either leave the amounts blank and manually fill these in as you need a price tag or have all the item's information printed on the label.

Step 3

Punch a hole in the top left hand corner of the business card. Tie the ribbon through the hole and attach it to clothing by tying through a label, button hole or pinning with a safety pin. You can also tie the business card to larger pieces of jewelry, such as necklaces, bracelets and rings.

Step 4

Attach earrings to the business cards. Punch two holes large enough to slip earring studs through the business card. To secure earrings to the business card, place a piece of tape over the back of the business card covering the earring backs.
