Tagging Instructions

How to properly tag & hang your items:

First register as a Consignor or Login into your Consignor account by clicking HERE

Once you have logged in, you will see a screen that gives you these options: 


Enter Items
Manage Your Inventory
Print Tags
View Settlement Report


These options will be where you will manage all your items and see which items have sold during the sale.


Directions for Entering Your Items 


 Click on "Enter Items" and fill in all the information. 
Please enter thorough item descriptions! For instance: Navy Sports Jacket.
 If a tag is lost from an item, the only way we can match it to the correct item is with the description you enter. For example, if your description is “Dress”, this does not help us locate the correct dress. We could have four dresses with a lost tag. Please include brand, color, and 2-piece, if applicable. “New” and “Only Worn Once” on descriptions can make your item more appealing to a buyer too! However, there is a limit to how many words you can use.  


Also, you MUST enter something in the "Category" blank - this determines whether to collect the tax or not!  Yes - we have to collect sales tax. :( To simplify this - if it is a clothing item just choose Boy Clothing/Girl Clothing; you do not have to be specific for PA taxes. If it is something else, please choose a category that is close if not specific.  

After you have filled in the information, click "Add Item".  If you made a mistake or wish to change something, you have the opportunity to edit or delete it.  


Printing Tags 


When you are ready to print, click on "Print Tags."
Choose which tags to print by checking the box beside the item, then click "Generate Tags".  The tags should come up in a printable format.


Please use white card stock for printing.  Eight tags fit on each 8 1/2 X 11 piece of card stock paper. Print in LandscapeDo not use plain copy paper, it will not hold up under the rigors of the sale. Also, the barcode must be perfectly printed - it's the most important thing when a customer brings the item to the checkout.   Please make sure your tags are printed well - if the printing is poor quality, it will not scan and will cause much anxiety in the checkout lines.


Hangers:

You will need to supply your own hangers.  Metal hangers are the best because they slide more easily on the racks, but you may use plastic or wooden hangers too. You can pick up free hangers at your local dry cleaners - they are usually on a rack inside the door. Thrift stores also sell them for a couple of dollars as do Target & Walmart.  If you would like hangers back at the end of the sale, they will be available.  We usually have hangers that we supply a month before the sale at a convenient location in Lewisburg, but they go fast!


Tag Instructions:

Attach the tags on the right-hand side of the clothing with one safety pin at the top of the tag. All clothing items should be hung with the hanger hook facing in the left direction, like a ? mark.
If you are using a tagging gun, which I highly recommend, PLEASE attach your tag to the inside label or in a seam of the garment. DO NOT make a hole in the garment.
Here are some examples: (this is a set)










When hanging pants or skirts, please use pant hangers or safety pins at the TOP of the hanger, as pictured below. Do not hang by safety pins to the bottom of the hanger; the clothing does not hang neatly.
Do not fold them over the hanger, as customers cannot see them well.
This is how your pants/skirts should look:











For shoes, try to attach tag and shoes together. Ziplock bags are fine, or you can rubber band them together or attach them with a tagging gun or zip tie. Tieing laces together is another option.











For items other than clothing, attach tags to items with packaging tape as long as it will not ruin the item. Do not tape over the barcode. On something like a car seat, packaging tape will work great. The more orderly each item arrives, the better chance the item will sell.  If the tag is easily removed, it will most likely be lost and will not sell.
