Supplies You Will Need
- White card stock, approx. 65# weight (no colors)

- Scotch/Magic Tape
- Clear Packing Tape
- Zip Ties or String

*If you use a tagging gun be sure tag goes through label inside garment. DO NOT go through the fabric.
This will ruin your fabric/garment.
TIPS FOR TAGGING:
- Do NOT Procrastinate! The tagging system automatically closes 5 days prior to the sell.
- Do not alter the size of the printed tag. Bar Code scanning system is connected to this tag.
- Do not have any handwritten information on the tag
- You must choose “Discount” when you make the tag. We cannot change your tags and hand write the word discount on the tag. The computer must read it from the bar code.
- Use ONLY white cardstock for tags.
Too busy to tag?
We have a few ladies who have started their own tagging service for a fee.
Please contact either of these women if you are interested in this time saving service.
