Tagging is the process of entering the items you want to sell into MyRugrats, printing out the tags, and securing them to your consignment items. It is important that your online inventory is accurate and your printed tags are well secured.

You’ll need a few things to properly tag and package your items for the sale, so grab these before we get started:

Let’s start tagging! 

Entering Items into MyRugrats

Entering items into MyRugrats is the first step of the tagging process. Make sure you have your consignor number handy. If you still need an account, read through our Consignor Overview information on how to get a consignor number.

Category: It is important to select the correct category for your item so that sales tax can be applied appropriately.

Sizing: An accurate size forecast is essential for setting up the sale. Unfortunately, MyRugrats shows all of our available size options regardless of the category you have selected. This can cause confusion, so please keep the following rules in mind while sizing: 

Infant Clothing Sizes: Preemie, 0-3 Months, 3-6 Months, 6-12 Months, 12-18 Months, 18-24 Months, 24 Months 

Children’s Clothing Sizes: 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16

*Children’s clothing that is marked XS-XL should be translated to the proper numeric size as this is how it will be categorized for the sale. 

Juniors Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL

*Junior's clothing is between children's clothing and women's clothing, but is not the same. Children's clothing (sizes 10, 12, etc.) should NOT be marked as Junior's. Women's clothing should not be marked as Juniors. Aeropostale, Hollister, Rue 21, and odd numbered sizing in jeans are junior's clothing. 

​If you still have questions about sizing, please post to the Rugrats Consignor Support Group on Facebook. 

Description: This should be as descriptive as possible. This field is used to pair lost tags with items should they become separated.  The appropriate size should be in the sizing field, but supplemental sizing such as Slim or Plus can be added to the description.


The most successful Consignors price their items appropriately. We recommend 30% of the original retail price as a good starting point. Budget brands should be priced slightly lower than better brands. Items in excellent condition, or new with tags, may also be priced higher. Here are some clothing guidelines:

Price items in 50 cent increments. The minimum price for any single item is $.50. This pricing is on a trial basis.  Please do not use this price point as an opportunity to price junk.  Bundles of smaller things are still encouraged.

For advice from experienced Consignors, feel free to post pricing questions in the Rugrats Consignor Support Group on Facebook.

Identifying Tag Components:

Refer to the diagram below to identify features of the Rugrats Resale item tag. 

Printing Tags:

Once you have all your items entered into MyRugrats, it’s time to print! When printing, please use heavy paper or card stock. Anything 28 pound or greater should work. Tags should be printed on bright white paper; tags printed on dark colored paper will not be accepted. Finally, do not modify your tags by hand. If you need to make changes to a tag, please make the change in MyRugrats and reprint the tag. Hand modified tags can create a lot of confusion at checkout; therefore, they will not be accepted at the sale.

Tag Quality:

Pay special attention to the printed tags. The print quality of the barcode is critical for making sure your item is properly credited to you during the sale. High quality tags speed up the checkout process and help keep our line moving. You will be asked to re-tag any items with poor quality tags during drop off. 

*Note: If using a colored printer, be sure to set the options for black & white printing! This is important because although you may not be able to see color on the tag, it is there and will not scan.
