tag2

  • Whenever possible, attach price tag to the clothing tag rather than through the fabric.  This minimizes damage to the garment.
  • Tag may only be attached with a safety pin or tagging gun.
  • The hanger should face left like a question mark.
  • NO STAPLES OR STRAIGHT PINS ALLOWED
  • Pants should be secured to the hanger with large safety pins ONLY (no clothes pins).  Do not fold pants over the hanger.
  • Pants should be pinned to the TOP of the hanger rather than the bottom rung.  See picture.
  • Do not place clothing in zip lock bags.

 

Shoes:tag5

 

  • Use a plastic tie to secure pairs of shoes together.
  • Secure your tags to shoes using the plastic tie.
  • If using a zip lock bag, place tag on outside.

 

Books and Media:

  • Tape tag on the back of the book or on the inside back cover with scotch tape or painters tap to prevent damage to the book.
  • Do not place books in zip lock bags.

 

Small, loose toys:

  • If you have small toys with lots of loose pieces (ex. blocks, small cars, soldiers) put them all in a Ziploc bag. Use Ziploc Brand “Big Bags” for larger pieces, if needed.
  • Secure the top of the bag with packing tape.
  • Tape your tag on the outside of the bag.

 

Large items:

Do your best to SECURELY attach your price tag to the item WITHOUT DAMAGING THE ITEM.

  1. Hi, first time consignor, do we tag our items when we drop them off or print out tags beforehand? Thanks!

    • Welcome Elizabeth! We are happy to have you join us! Please print out your tags on cardstock and tag your items before dropping them off. Your 30 minute drop off session will be very busy with us going through your items and sorting them for all our shoppers to clearly find. 🙂 Let us know if you have any other questions. See you soon!

      • Hi, thanks for the reply. I’m having a hard time locating the printable tags on the website/consignor page. Am I missing the link? Thanks!

      • It can be hard to find. 🙂 Log into your consignor account (if you don’t have one, register as a consignor first). On the “Consignor Homepage”, the fifth option on the lefthand column of activities says “Work with Consigned Inventory.” After clicking on that you will get to a screen with lots of options. Scroll down to see the “Print Tags” options. Let us know if you need more help!

  2. Is there a link to enter items to be tagged? Or do we make up our own tag? If so what information needs to be on the tag?

    • Our systems generates tags for you! When you are logged into your consignor account, the fifth option on the lefthand column of activities says “Work with Consigned Inventory.” After clicking on that you will get to a screen with lots of options. Scroll down to see the “Print Tags” options. Let us know if you need more help! 🙂

  3. When grouping items together like an outfit or a few shirts/ onsies together, do you want them all on separate hangers or all pinned on the same hanger? I have some shirts and pants that go together and I am trying to figure out how to keep them grouped. thanks!

  4. How should I tag and prepare the following non-clothing items: a Baby Bjorn, a Seven Sling (carrier), a single basinet sheet, and a nursing cover?

    • Once you register as a consignor and enter your inventory, the system generates the tags for you to print out in white card stick. Would you like us to send you a detailed new consignor email? 🙂

  5. The guidelines say not to put clothing in Ziploc bags, but I thought onesies were often in Ziplocs? Can you confirm whether or not that’s ok? Thanks!

  6. Should I hang a costume on a hanger or just fold it up? It too big to fit in a plastic bag. Thank you

  7. Is colored card stock okay to print labels on or does it have to be white? I have cream color which is the closest to white I have.
