When tagging your scrapbooking / stamping related items for consignment, we use My Consignment Manager.
If you have consigned with us in the past, you will be pleased to know that you can transfer your items from one sale to another in the My Consignment Manager software to reduce the amount of entering and tagging your items. However, if you change the price, category or discount selection on a previously consigned item, you will have to reprint your tag for that item.
For in-person consignments, you will enter all your items online, print your tags and then label your items. You will print your tags on 60# card stock available at any local office supply store. Please use scotch, painters, masking tape or staples to attach your tags to the appropriate items. Many times, items in a Ziploc bag work well with a tag that is stapled onto the bag. Do not print your tags on label paper and do not use packing / shipping tape as it is impossible to remove without damage to the item. Similar items sell well as a set, bagged together in a Ziploc bag. Lastly, tags are approximately 2.5″ x 4″; eight tags print out per 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of card stock.
For online consignments, you will enter all your items online but print and label only those items that have SOLD during the consignment. Each evening, consignors will be able to see what sold and can print only those tags necessary and set that sold item aside for consignor drop-off. We have a private Facebook group to help consignors through the process too.
For both types of consignments, if you’re selling paper, it is best to use Ziploc bags to sell several sheets together, selling single sheets of paper does not sell well, if at all. Bags we have found to be big enough to hold 12×12 or larger sizes is Hefty one-zip, jumbo 2.5 gallon (14 3/8 in. x 16 in.). We have found these at Wal-Mart, Kroger and Publix.
Ribbon of any kind should be coiled, placed in a Ziploc bag and tagged.
Remember, you must have all your consignment items entered the MYCM website by the date listed on the sidebar of the website. Please no exceptions because this gives us a very short window to get the register set up for the sale!
