There are different versions of thread available for the wings in the 3rd and 4th generation hang tags. In the 3rd generation hang tag runs, the thread on the wings is available in pale pink and regular pink. However, in the 4th generation hang tags, there are three options of thread available for the wings, which are regular, medium, and hot pink. Additionally, for the Magic variant, the hot pink thread can also be used on the spine and edges of the wings.

What does bolded mean?

This is in reference to the text inside the yellow star on the front of the 4th generation hang tag. Earlier tags have a bolder font that has rounded edges. The later 4th generation tags I do not indicate as bolded will have a lighter, non-bolded font with sharp 90-degree edges to each letter instead of rounded edges.

“SUFRACE”   VS. “SURFACE”
