Default Re: What are you doing for Labeling Requirement?

I know what you are saying about labeling the card. The first thing I would do is throw out the card. Maybe after I checked out their website and saved it, but maybe not.
I have no idea how to be able to track and prove that that is your creation once the customer has bought it. Esp if you make several of the same bows in the same color. I know the quality isnt the same, but who's to say that if a bow is ever questioned, that it came from a mass marketer/store? We cannot prove that is our bow.
Do we need to keep a photo diary??? I HATE the CPSIA and the vagueness of the whole thing!!!!!!!

I don't get how that will help. If your label is on your card and the person throws it away, how are you going to know which lot it was from? For instance I might make a batch of purple bows with RABOM ribbon in July and then in August another batch with purple ribbon from TRR. If a bow is brought back without the card all of the work done documenting is pretty much pointless because there is no way to tell when it was made

I don't get it either, but I'm just trying to follow the law. I've decided to number my items and just handwrite that number on the card. It's not my fault if the buyer doesn't keep the card I guess? I dunno, it's dumb all the way around!

I have no problems following the law. It is just confusing. I was in the process of possibly changing my site over to a new host and revamping it. Now I am not sure what to do.

I still can't wrap my head around the labeling requirement. I produce bows in small amounts. Often, it is just one or two bows at a time. How can I keep track of batch numbers?

How can I permanently label a bow? Iron-on transfers aren't permanent labeling. It can wear off pretty easily. It isn't feasible to screen print the ribbon, and few screen print inks comply to the law.

I just want to be sure I understand this, though I'm not sure anyone can 100% the way its written.

Anyway, we need on the packaging:
Name, address, and date made/some code that indicates the bows make in whatever way is easier for us to keep track of.

Furthermore, we have to have certificates for all the pieces we are using in the bow on file, also having records of every bow with aformentioned code.

My question is this: What about ribbon that is bought at Michael's, or Walmart, or Hobby Lobby? I have ribbon from all places, do not have exact dates I purchased them, and don't have certificates. Can they not be used?
