If you need help contacting apparel accessory company then let me introduce you.
Which accessories will you require?
• Poly Bags
• Hang Tags
• Silica Gel Bags
• Cardboard Inserts
All of these are “accessive,” that’s how I remember the difference between trim and accessories. Accessories are thrown away.
Accessories have artwork that you will need to provide to the factory. When buying garment accessories in Vietnam you have quality options that you will need to choose.

Add a few cents more for printing on the outside of the box as well. The artwork on the box can be shipping information plus branding (your logo and slogan.) Usually the print is just one color: black. I recommend basic shipping info like “box 1 of 30” with the destination address and your logo. Did you think about: If you put your logo on the box and your brand is famous, there is a higher chance of boxes being stolen? Are you comfortable with buying garment accessories in Vietnam?
Will the polybags have print?
Usually each garment is enclosed in a poly bag to protect it from water and dust. You can print on the polybag if you want. Usually buyers will print a caution notice to warn against asphyxiation. Or buyers will print their logo on the poly bag. You can print in color or black. Polybag MOQ is 1,000 pieces. The typical size is 20 cm x 30 cm and the typical cost is 1.1 cents. If your garments are being transported on hangers and you need a hanger polybag then the cost is 6.2 cents. Buying garment accessories in Vietnam requires that you shop around to get the best price - or accept the price the sewing factory quotes you.
How many hang tags will you have?Hang tags can be any shape and come in a variety of thicknesses. You can have a matte finish or glossy finish and unlimited colors in your artwork. Basically you need to provide the original artwork, including any text. It’s best to supply the artwork in the original file format like Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. A good factory should show you samples and recommend best pricing. The MOQ for hang tags is 2,000 pieces.
Vietnam has reliable hang tag suppliers but a good factory can source the same quality for a better price in Thailand or Malaysia. Avery Dennison has a factory in Vietnam and makes great quality hang tags but their price is high. Ask your factory where the hang tags are being printed. If they say Vietnam, then ask them to source a better price in Thailand. How they answer you will tell you a lot about their skill level in merchandising.
