For a string or any legal Mathematica expression you can do

({#1, string} & ) /@ 
  {{{1, 1}}, {{1, 2}}, 
   {{1, 3}}, {{2, 1}}, 
   {{2, 2}}, {{2, 3}}, 
   {{3, 1}}, {{3, 2}}, 
   {{3, 3}}}

to get

{{{{1, 1}}, string}, 
  {{{1, 2}}, string}, 
  {{{1, 3}}, string}, 
  {{{2, 1}}, string}, 
  {{{2, 2}}, string}, 
  {{{2, 3}}, string}, 
  {{{3, 1}}, string}, 
  {{{3, 2}}, string}, 
  {{{3, 3}}, string}}
  
But since the sign operator by itself is not a legal Mathematica expression, I don't think there is a way to do the second. I can of course, pad with the single character "-".
