Universal Tag Inc. was founded in 1927 by a gentleman named Dominique Paquette in the town of Southbridge, Massachusetts. The primary manufactured products at that time were basic paper shipping tags. The company grew slowly over the years with a total of only six employees and one or two printing presses through the 1930s and 1940s. Upon the death of Mr. Paquette in the mid 1950s, the company was handed over to Bob and Jeanne Mandeville.

Today, the entire Mandeville family continues to manage and operate the family business. With over 30 employees and 40,000sf of combined factory, warehouse and office space, the business has grown to include a much wider variety of products and services.

Currently we manufacture and print a full line of stock paper tags and labels. The majority of the stock items we make are utilized in the retail market including:

  • sale tags and labels
  • price tags and labels
  • clearance tags and labels
  • alteration tags and labels
  • lay-away tags and labels
  • garment tags and labels

We also specialize in the manufacture of custom tags and labels for retail and industry.

Custom products may also include consecutive numbering, jumbo numbering, consecutive bar coding, variable data, film laminating, perforations, die cutting, fiber patch holes, strip film reinforcing, metal eyelets, transfer tape, knotted or looped string, elastic string and wire attachments.
