HANG TAGS: The authentic Ed Hardy hang tag consists of a firm paperboard with a high quality punch hole where the twisted yarn runs through. Some hang tags carry a textile patch on the front which is evenly and smoothly stitched on the tag – no waves, no holes, no dints! The stitching on the four edges has a zick-zack form and does NOT stay within the frame stitching but goes BEYOND it! Other styles feature hang tags with a colourful print instead of the textile patch. The back always has a print whereby the stitching of the front shows as well. It frames the sticker that carries the following information: „Style#“, „Desc.“, „Color“ and „Size“. The order may vary. Here some authentic examples:
The FAKE TAG ON THE RIGHT features the wrong stitching style on the 4 corners of the textile patch and is poorly done:

IMPORTANT: Because of the poor paperboard quality fakers can’t manage that the stitching looks clean and does NOT destroy the paperboard on the back side. Also, the patch with style, size etc. info is missing sometimes. Left the authentic tag, ON THE RIGHT THE FAKE:
Some Ed Hardy styles feature smaller hang tags that don’t have a textile patch but a very fine premium quality print with different tattoo motives and the patch on the back:
Hang tag jackets: They also are made of paperboard with a punch hole and a thick yarn. One side features the logo writing printed and the back carries again the patch with: „Style#“, „Tattoo“,„Color“und „Size“:
