Hey Party People!
Tonight there’s an actual “new moon on Monday” if you follow the phases of the moon and Duran Duran.
I got the sew-out sample of my clothing labels and they look so good. When I saw the sample, my first thought was, “holy shit, am I really doing this??” I’ve tried to start a business once before. I got my website created (way too expensive, by the way) and started ordering wholesale items to sell in my online boutique. Then I got deployed to war. That was annoying. So anyway, some years have passed and now I’ve grown out of the original woven clothing labels I’d designed back in the day. The design was uninspired. My new logo is solid and speaks to me. My hangtag design is legit too.
I’ve approved the samples and now we wait for them to arrive. In the meantime, I totally forgot about care labels. Those are required. If you’re selling clothes in the U.S., labels have to show the fiber content (example: 100% cotton), country of origin (all my stuff is made in Cali), manufacturer (that’s KDD), and care instructions (so people don’t get mad when they f*&k it up in the wash). If you’re interested, you can get more info at www.ftc.gov.
I guess I better order care labels now.
