Hang tags

We have made the executive decision.

We are soon going to stop using the “general” hang tags on the fine finish pieces.
The hang tags were intended for use in retail stores, so that the store personnel and customers would have a little bit of info about us. Most of our sales are now direct to customers so the tags are no longer needed.
(I always thought the hang tags were annoying anyway)

We are going to use up the remaining supply of hang tags we have, then ..ftt! No more.
We still have a good supply of hang tags for the stone finish pieces ( they have different words in them) so we will continue annoying people with those for now.

    I approve ( as if you needed it) hang tags have always bugged me. I feel like if I remove it, it devalues it in some way, but it’s annoying to constantly have to position them under the piece so they don’t show for display.

    I think that the hang tags are a pain in the A** and it drives me nuts too trying to hide the tag but not damage it and devalue the piece **HEAD SLAP** Makes me bonkers so I am happy about this executive decision for sure 🙂

    sounds like a good decision, I always worry about bending them whenever I move a piece…I know most people wouldn’t care but my luck, I’d get the one who doesn’t like bent tags when I sold something….not to say I’ve bent tons of tags, only one that I remember….

    Wonderful! 🙂 I’ll be glad to see the last of ’em!

    I’m going to be the odd one here and say I have always removed the hang tag. I have only ever collected Windstone for my own purposes: I think they are beautiful and they make me happy. I want to view them in the easiest, cleanest way possible. It may devalue them to others, but not to me. Its not like I will ever sell them. Please don’t think of this as me not valuing them…

    Then again, I took the tags off my beanie babies and my rare action figures are all out of the box and posed on a shelf together. I’m an odd duck.

    Great decision! I’m like several others here, I don’t like them but never take them off for fear of devaluing the piece. On the big pieces they’re not so bad you can easily hide them, but on the small pieces they are a real pain.

    Yay! No more tags! This will also be a cost saving for the store too. Eco-friendly, less paper in the recycle bin.

    I got used to leaving hang tags on because of my beanie babies. I don’t mind them with or without but I would also hide them under or behind my pieces so if it is easier not to put them on then that makes sense.

    You’re not the only one! I’ve removed the tags on mine and I always did with my beanie babies too! You’re right, they’re not good for asthetics! XD

    I’m pleased to hear this news!

    I’ve never liked them much either. It’s too hard to stuff them under the smaller sculpts when I display them.

    The cost savings for Windstone will be great too! 😉

    Not the only one by far, although I’ve generally only removed them from the smallest non-ebay sculpts in my collection. I’ll admit that this news makes me want to go rip all the rest off right now. (Obviously I’m another one who supports this decision whole-heartedly!)

    Same here; the first thing I did was cut them off (until I discovered that, if done properly, they can be completely yanked out – no thread left to make young poads wobbly!).
