Aglet is a piece of wrapping a cylindrical tape, creating a tube shape around the end of a round or flat cord to prevent it from fraying.
You can see these aglets at both ends of a shoelace or hoodie.
SHINDO, a familiar cord and ribbon manufacturer on ApparelX offers their custom-ordered aglets: The aglet tip print.
Aglet are basically transparent, but some manufacturers offer colored chips.
However, not all manufacturers have colored aglets. SHINDO and Korudon are big manufacturers that produce colored aglets.
Usually designers will use the manufacturer’s cord for anglet processing, but in some cases they will accept cord brought in, so it is a good idea to discuss with the manufacturer beforehand.
It is possible to print a brand’s logo, icon, or pattern to create an original tube tip.
Here is an example of how it is made by SHINDO.
Minimum Order Quantity: 400 pieces
Shell color: transparent only
Color tubes cannot be used because the print is printed on the inside of the tube to prevent the print from coming off due to friction.
