Print, prep & tag

Do I need special paper for my tags?

Yes.  You must use white cardstock for all items. The cardstock needs to be >60lb sheets.

How do I print my tags?

After entering your items, click on the tab that says “Print Tags”.  You can select all or a few of your tags to generate.  Once you select the items, click on “Generate Tags”.  This will bring up a pdf file with 6 tags.  The file will automatically print in the landscape format, do not adjust your settings.  Printer should be set at “normal”, not “best” or “draft.”  If the ink is too dark or too light, the tags will not scan.

How do I prepare my items for tagging?

-All clothing items and accessories must be hung on hangers.  This includes swimsuits, pajamas, and costumes.  Attach shorts, pants, and skirts to a hanger with safety pins.

-Matching sets must be the same size.  No Size 3 top with a Size 2 bottom.

-Clothes sell better when they are in good condition, washed, and ironed.  Inspect all items for stains, broken zippers, and torn hemlines.  We cannot accept soiled, stained or damaged items.

-Shoes must be clean and placed in a Ziploc bag or secured together with zip ties.  Loose shoes will not be accepted.

-All electronics must work properly and have working batteries.  Charge all ride-on and motorized toys and secure charger to the item.  Buyers will want to see your toy works wonderfully.  We cannot accept ride-ons that are not charged at drop-off.

-If your item has small parts or chargers, place them in a Ziploc bag and securely tape them to the item. This is to prevent parts from getting lost or stolen.

-Games and puzzles should have all pieces and should be bagged/boxed appropriately

-DVDs should be in their matching case.

How do I hang my clothes?

While facing the item, the hanger should make a question mark. (?)  You may need to use safety pins to secure your item to the hanger.  More than one item can be hung on one hanger.  For example…You may safety pin 2-3 pajamas, shirts, or pairs of shorts and pants together on one hanger.  This allows you to sell more items for a higher price!


How do I attach my tag to clothing?

Tags may be attached using a tagging gun or safety pins.  Please insert the needle of the tagging gun or pin through the garment’s tag or through a seam in the item’s left armpit.  Please do not use a tagging gun through the body of the garmet or you will create a hole.

How do I attach my tag to toys/equipment?

We recommend securely taping your tag to the item with clear packing tape.  Do not place tape over the barcode.  Your item may not scan if this happens.  At checkout we tear the barcode off to scan.  Keep tape above the barcode.

How do I tag my shoes?

Securely tape the tag on the outside of the bag with clear packing tape.  Do not place the tag inside the bag.  If you are zip tying your shoes together, zip tie the tag also or use a safety pin to attach the tag to the zip tie.

IMPORTANT!!  Items without a tag or missing a tag will NOT be sold.  SRBCC Preschool Consignment is not responsible for items or payment for items that are not tagged/packaged correctly.  All items without a tag will be placed in the lobby at pick up on Saturday.  Please check this table for any of your items.
