Treasury Tags

If you're looking for treasury tags, you've come to the right place. We offer a huge range of options in elastic, cord and ribbon - in 11 widths and 45 colours, and with your choice of metal or plastic tags (see the chart and photos below).

For hundreds of years, treasury tags have been used to hold together sheaves of documents, typically at one corner, offering an alternative to files or filing strips. This lovely traditional approach can really add a twist even to the most contemporary packaging and filing solutions.

Treasury tags consist of a ‘string’, which can be made of all sorts of fabrics (including elastic, cord and ribbon), with cross-pieces at each end made from plastic or metal (also called 'barbs'). The thicker your stack of paper, the longer the treasury tag you’ll need.

Plastic ends

Conveniently, the plastic ends on treasury tags can be shredded at the same time as you shred your documents - saving a lot of time and hassle.

Types of metal end

The ends on treasury tags can be supplied in tinned steel, solid brass or brass-effect.
