If you sell handmade hair clips, barrettes or hair jewelry at festivals and craft shows, you will need display cards for your products. A properly designed display card not only shows your professionalism, it helps protect your homemade products as well as attract attention from buyers. The card also serves as a marketing tool to promote your business. The following is a simple guide to get you started on making your own display cards.


Step 1

Decide how many hair clips you want to attach onto each card. The size of the card could be as small as a business card for a single hair clip or as large as a postcard for multiple clips.

Step 2

Design a logo and print it on a sheet of labels. Alternatively, you may print it directly onto the card stock. Print separate labels for contact and marketing information.

Step 3

Measure the metal underside of the hair clip or barrette.


Step 4

Draw two parallel lines of equal length on the card stock. The distance between those lines should be smaller than the metal part of the hair clip

Step 5

Punch a hole on each line's endpoint, using a handheld hole puncher. You will have four holes in total.

Step 6

Use an X-Acto knife, cut two vertical slits starting at the top holes toward the bottom holes.


Step 7

Clip the barrette between the slits. You may need to experiment with the distance of the slits.

Step 8

Apply your logo onto the top of your card. Your contact or marketing information may go on the back of cards.

Step 9

For a hanging display, you may make a hole on top of the card and tie a string through it.


Larger cards take up more space, but they command more attention. Larger sizes have a higher perceived value.


Avoid using X-Acto knives or sharp objects around small children.
