General Tagging Tips

Use very detailed descriptions on your tags. If an item gets separated from its tag, we can look it up in our system, but only if the description on the tag gives us enough information to match it up to the item. We are not able to sell items that do not have a tag.

Bad example: Sweater

Good example: Baby Gap Light Blue Sweater with dog

Once you have printed your tags, do NOT change ANYTHING in the tagging program or on the actual tags such as price, description, size, discount, etc. 

The barcode will only give the info that was input into the computer at the time it was printed. If you need to make a change, you must correct it in your online inventory AND print out a new tag and attach to the item.

Make sure your barcodes are not smudged or fuzzy. If using an inkjet printer, set it on the draft or low ink setting. If your bar codes come out fuzzy or too bold, they will not scan.

Print on white cardstock only!

Large items with multiple pieces should be noted in your description, so if something comes loose we can find the missing piece. 

Example: stroller, carseat, and carseat base

  • Hand-write Item 1 of 3 on the barcoded tag and attach it to the stroller.
  • Hand-write item 2 of 3 on a 3X5 index card and attach it to the carseat.
  • Hand-write item 3 of 3 on a 3X5 index card and attach it to the carseat base.

You can also attach a 3×5 card with extra notes or comments to items to give some extra details that you want shoppers to know!
