Item Tagging

Hiz & Herz utilizes a barcode system to allow for a fast check-out experience and to provide an accurate account of your sales. Each consignor is issued a unique barcode tied to their ID number, upon registration. Your barcode must be on all of your tags. 

How to Create Tags

We allow two methods for creating price tags - print at home or receive barcode labels via USPS. Our recommended method is using our template to print at home. During registration, please select which method you will use. All tags will be inspected during your drop off appointment. Any items that are improperly tagged will have to be redone on your time. Please email us with any questions.

Method 1 - Print at Home

Discounted Consignor Fee when you Print at Home

After registration, you will be emailed a pdf that includes a tag template with your unique consignor ID barcode and a sheet of barcodes. Choose to print each tag individually on 3x5 index cards, 4 at a time on 65lb minimum cardstock, or print the barcodes on 0.5" x 0.75" labels and place them on 3x5 index cards following the proper format. We recommend Avery® Template 5267. Details instructions provided via email.

Method 2 - Barcodes Mailed

If you choose this method, barcode labels will be mailed to you. Use only 3x5 index cards and write legibly. Fill out cards following the diagram and place one barcode sticker in the upper left portion of the tag, leaving enough room at the top for the safety pin.

Additional Information

Description

Please be as specific as possible in case your tag gets separated from your item. This could aid in pairing them back together and ensuring you get your money for the item.

ND - No Discount

This is optional. If you choose to put ND in the bottom right corner of the tag, the item will not be discounted at the 1/2 Price Sale.

Price

Determine your own prices. Please note, items priced too high may be turned away at drop-off.

How to Attach Tags

Clothing

All clothing must be on wire hangers. Dry cleaners will give you hangers if you ask(please remove cardboard). The hanger hook should point to the left, and the tag should be safety pinned on the right shoulder when facing the item. Pin sets securely together by hanging the shirt first, then turning the hanger over, and pinning the pants by the waist to the backside of the hanger, using two pins, with the pin catching the hanger to support the pants. Both pieces can be viewed without unpinning them, and this prevents lost items.

On larger clothing items, such as dresses, please secure them with safety pins if they have a tendency to fall off the hanger. Your items won't sell if they're on the floor.

Pants or shorts sold alone should be pinned at the waist by folding it over the hanger.

Video demonstration coming soon.

Non-Hanging Items

Shoes: May be tied together with string or ribbon shoelaces tied together, safety pinned through lace holes, or place in a ziploc bag with the card taped to the OUTSIDE of the bag and with the bag taped at the top to insure that your items stay together.

Large Items: Please make sure the price tag is securely attached to your item. Packing tape or pinning a card through ribbon and attaching are the best options.

Items with small parts: Small parts should be contained in a ziplock bag and attached securely to any large item to ensure no missing parts.

Books and Videos: Please do not use packing tape on books and videos, since it usually tears the cover. Make sure that videos work, and secure tag with two pieces of scotch tape, or put in ziplock bags. If packaging multiples together in bags, please write all titles on the tag.

Assembly Required: Items that require assembly must be assembled on-site or prior to drop-off. Please make sure we know how to disassemble so we may let any potential buyer know. Make sure to bring any tools you may require for assembly.

Additional Instructions: Anything put into a ziplock bag must have the tag taped to the outside of the bag, and the bag taped shut, this will ensure that your items are not separated.

When in Doubt, ASK!   Feel free to email us with any questions.
