Welcome to the home of Treasury Tags
Treasury tags (or India tags) are a short length of green cotton cord with tinned metal ends (sometimes Plastic) that is passed through
tags, also known as India
tags, are traditional stationery items used to fasten sheets of
paper to each other or to a folder. They consist of a piece of
string, more commonly green cotton cord, typically around 25mm to
152mm long, both ends are held in the centre of a metal or plastic
bar. Treasury tags are designed to be threaded through holes in
paper which have been typically made by a hole punch.
The earliest reference in the Oxford English Dictionary for
'Treasury tags' is from a 1912 list of articles authorised to be
supplied by Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO). 'India tags' are
also mentioned in the same list, though differentiated ('cross-bar'
as opposed to 'insertion' of Treasury tags). It is difficult to
ascertain the origin of the terms but since 'Treasury' is commonly
capitalised, it probably refers to HM Treasury; in the same vein
'India' may refer to the India Office (a department of the British
Government which dealt with Indian affairs). The 1912 reference
would then refer to filing tags popular in each office.
Treasury tags of different lengths are
designed for paper of different quantities or thickness. Choose a
tag long enough to accommodate the width of the documents but not so
long as to allow the paper to become sprawled out and untidy. Use

Tip - When punching holes for your Treasury tags, make sure that
they are at the left hand side of the report and that they are at
least 25mm into the paper, both from the top and the left. This is
important as in time, your sheets will soon become detached and your
report unmanageable. For larger documents, punch an extra hole at
the bottom or use a 4-hole punch.
