Designing a Hangtag

I've been working on designing a hangtag for one of my bags. I had never really given much thought to hangtags, but now that I’m working towards getting one of my bags in a store I'll need them. I have really enjoyed the design process. That's the fun part! The rest - turning the idea into an actual tag - isn't as exciting.

I approved the proof at the printer this morning and now I'm waiting for him to print my order. I love to have things printed and just going to the printer is fun. I think the old letterpresses are wonderful but realistically I don't have the time or probably the interest long term to have a large heavy machine taking up space in my studio. Using a letterpress is the 'old-fashioned' way of printing.
