You will use an online database to enter your inventory and create the bar code tags at home. We do not accept hand-printed tags.
Plastic Store hangers that clothes are bought on work the best for the adult sale. Ask when you purchase something if you can keep the hangers. Ask the store if they have extra hangers. Some stores pitch the hangers at the end of the night.
Wire Hangers can be used for pants, skirts, shorts.
Ask your family and neighbors.
Contact us; we may have some that we have collected over the offseason.
We give them out till all are gone.

Tagging Gun with 1/2 - 1-inch barbs can be used to attach the tags. Do not use tagging barbs to hold clothing on hangers. It does not work. If you would, please use only the short 1/2 to 1 in barbs only.
Contact me if you need 1 in barbs; I ordered 1 in barbs to have them in stock.
2-inch barbs cause them to hang too loosely, and the tags fall off and cause the material to rip.
They can be used to attach your tags at the seams or the size tags at the collar. Please be aware of where you attach the tags when using a tagging gun to prevent holes.
It can be used to attach tags to the inside cover of a book or onto the back of puzzles.
