Header Cards Details

Header cards are a popular method to fix product labels to poly bags of spices, candies, and also small retail products. Rather than printing on a bag, a stiff cardstock card folded over the top of the package helps to elevate product appearance and even maintain the bag shape. These are perfect for favors and also small gift bags!

 Bag Toppers Specs


We print our header cards on durable cardstock with various finishes, also depending on the paper options you prefer. Here are our most popular finishes:

  • High gloss UV coated cardstock
  • Matte Cardstock
  • Kraft Recycled Paper Cardstock

Custom Size

Depending on the size of your poly bag, we can also customize the sizing. Just let us know the dimensions of your chosen container and also the product weight and we’ll create a custom header card.

Here are some standard sizes of header cards for your reference!

  • 3″ x 4″
  • 4″ x 4″
  • 5″ x 5″
  • 6″ x 5″
  • 8″ x 5″

Hole Punch

Our bag toppers can be punched with two styles of holes, or without die cutting a hole at all. We also include the sombrero style punch. These sombrero style peg hole hangers are very common on grocery store hooks. We can also do an optional round hole punch for a more basic look. In fact, if you prefer your product packaging to be created without a peg hole, we can leave this detail off. Just let our customer service representative know!


We can include any design you prefer on the header card, although we take into account the product configuration before making any decisions. If you have a design template ready to print that you’ve created in photoshop or another editing program, send it to the team. We can work with your graphics, or offer design services to customize a high-quality design together!

How do I use a header card?

Attaching bag toppers to your product is incredibly easy. Merely place your products into a product bag, and fold the header card over the opening. You can also secure with adhesive or small staples!

We make our header cards with easy folding in mind, and also offer hole punch options to turn them into hang tags in minutes!

Are bag toppers cost-effective?

Header cards are one of the most cost-effective ways to bring brand awareness to your customers.  It is also a handy form of advertising to grab the attention of the customer. You can hang the header card packaging on almost any product!

What design elements can I add to the paper stock?

If you would like to dress up your header cards a bit, we can also add eye-catching details easily. These include:

  • Debossing
  • Metallic Ink
  • Hot Foil

What information should I include on my header card printing?

The information that you add to the bag topper will depend on your unique product. However, here are some key details to include as a rule of thumb:

  • Product Name
  • Brand Logo
  • Product Type
  • Manufacturer Information
  • Allergen Warnings (if a food item)

Remember that food item labels are also subject to requirements from the FDA.

Are header cards my only option for tagging my quality products?

No! We also offer a variety of hang tagsproduct labels and more. Whether you need stickers, tags, labels or more, we can help.
