Our Bib and Flag Ties give your produce a “mini-billboard” to share your farm story, inform consumers, and make your brand stand out! The tag hangs from the tie’s center (Bib) or end (Flag). Multiple sizes, custom print, and writable surfaces allow you to create exactly what you need for a water-resistant, rust-free solution!

ElastiTag® Band

Printed face + stretchy elastomer = a branding/bundling solution that stretches for an ideal fit every time! Its reputation in the produce industry as a “banana band” keeps bananas bunched together, which is important for labeling and traceability. With 70% less plastic than a traditional plastic banana bag, it is a more eco-friendly produce packaging choice.

Snap-A-Tag®

Just Snap-A-Tag onto a rubber band and you’ve got instant branding! Easily apply to large and small rubber bands or directly to the vine or stem of flowers for an effortless labeling solution. We bring our high-definition, custom printing to these durable, water-resistant tags.
