Label Tag Tools for Clothing, Packaging, & Other Consumer Goods

Tagging tools are used in any industry where products need to be permanently or temporarily tagged, such as retail, clothing, tailoring, dry-cleaning, consumer packaged goods, electronics, food, and more. Most tagging systems use a tool and needle to insert the fastener through an item. Common uses for tag tools include:
  • Attaching prices
  • Indicating sizes
  • Including bar codes
  • Product identification
  • Branding or messaging

These tag tools come in standard and fine needle versions. The industrial BUTTONEER is ideal for very tight holding like buttons, pleats, bar tacks, or installing blocks inside weather stripping for car doors.

Mark III™ Pistol Tagging Tool

This Avery Dennison tool is the industry standard for tag gun tools. Its ergonomic design and easy-squeeze mechanism makes this the #1 choice for a variety if tagging applications. Compatible with most standard fasteners (50/clip or 100/clip).


This is the crafter's choice for basting quilts, repairing fallen hems, hemming drapes, tailoring garments, tacking appliques, assembling frame keepsakes or just decorating crafts. This hand-held attaching tool is easy to use and applies a micro plastic fastener that can be sewn over. This fastening tool is also ideal for quick clothing repairs. This tool features a small, extra-fine needle, a durable metal feeding mechanism and a trigger that is easy to squeeze. The MicroStitch can be used on fine fabrics and the tiny fastener can be easily removed with a quick pull or snap.

Avery Dennison Fasteners

Tag gun fasteners are used to attach the tags onto products. Material options for Dennison fasteners include polypropylene or nylon. The material you need will depend on the strength, flexibility, melt temp, and the chemical and abrasion resistance required by your application. Diamond Needle stocks a wide variety of fastener shapes from Avery Dennison, including:
  • Paddle Fasteners: Most common type used in garment tagging applications. Once attached, the paddle prevents the fastener from slipping through the hole and provides a larger surface to pull when removing.
  • T-End Fasteners: More discreet than paddle fasteners. Used for tagging, pairing products, and packaging.
  • Hook-Tach: Mostly used as a mini-hanger for soft goods, such as caps socks, gloves, and scarves.
  • Loop Fasteners: V-shaped with ends that anchor at two different points and a filament that serves as a loop. Used to hang goods, pair materials, or secure labels
  • Buttoneer® Fasteners: This popular fastener type has a rivet shaped head that makes it ideal for securing rubber and other elastic materials.
  • Secure-a-tach®, Secur-a-tie®, & StringTach™: Handheld fasteners for applications where piercing the material with a needle is not an option.
  • Plastic Staple® & Elastic Staple®: Commonly used in the textile industry to staple tags. These fasteners come in rolls and look very similar to T-End™ fasteners when cut by the tool. Elastic is stronger, and ideal for packaging.

Avery Dennison Needles

The Dennison needle design is fundamental to the Dennison tagging systems. The butt of the needle has a sharp knife to separate fasteners from their clips. Upon changing the needle, you also get a sharp new knife to ensure effective tagging. Dennison needles are finished to reduce the risk of snagging or making holes in delicate fabric. Our selection of needles includes standard and fine needles, all-steel heavy-duty needles, and SHD (super heavy duty) long needles.
