In an earlier Etsy Seller Tip post I wrote about how to size vintage clothing. I have since streamlined my process by using these tags I have made and am making available to you for free in my Free Tools Section.
I took the basic measurement requirements I have been using and put them all onto on card with space for notes about each item (potential tag keywords, notes on any damage/condition, manufacturing label sizing etc). As I photograph items (or sometimes as soon as I get them and am going through my finds of the day) I fill out a tag and safety pin it to the item.
When I get ready to list after I’ve photographed each item I remove the tags from all the items I am going to list and take them to my desk for an easy clutter-free workflow. I sometimes have a hard time remembering the price of each item when its in a slew of finds from one week so I will also include the cost on the back so I have that info when I get to the pricing stage.
I always pin to an existing tag or in an inconspicuous place (inside bottom seam) so as not to damage our product. I’d recommend printing on cardstock or a heavy weight paper (the lightweight shown here curls and rips easily) and using a hole punch and string to attach this way you could also slip the string over the hanger if there is no great place to pin it directly to the item.
