National Band & Tag Makes Tags for Plants Map

As of November 2021, Plants Map will no longer be making identification tags. National Band & Tag is able to manufacture plant and tree tags with your Plants Map URLS turned into QR Codes for you. This will allow anyone walking through your garden to use a smartphone to scan the QR Coded tag, and be taken to the Plants Map webpage on that plant. If you ever need to update the information for the plant, you can edit the page from your Plants Map account.

We offer multiple sizes of tags, but our most popular plant tag (Style #14PLANT) is 1.5″ x 4.5″ and our most popular tree tag (Style #14ARBOR) is 3″ x 5″. Both are made from a UV stable black aluminum material that is guaranteed to last outdoors for 20+ years. After you find a tag style that you like, you can then start the process of getting your Plants Map data over to us.

GETTING STARTED:

To choose what plants or trees you want tags made for, check out Plants Maps blog: My Tags: How to order plant tags and signs. This helpful walkthrough shows you how to pick your plants, set your lines of text, and download your Excel Sheet. If you have ordered from Plants Maps in the past, you can email them to get your past order files and logo files sent to you, and then you can forward them onto us.

National Band & Tag can work with the Excel sheet that Plants Map gives you except for column A, “Quantity”. This column will need to be deleted. If you want multiple tags of the same information, you will need to copy and paste the information onto a new row. (Ex: 50 rows = 50 tags).

Email your Excel sheet over to us at [email protected] along with what style tag you want. We will then send you a price quote and lead time.

Post a picture on Facebook of your tags in your garden and tag us @NationalBand @PlantsMap
