Safety Requirements for Children’s Apparel
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) have created a lot of questions for custom decorators. How does this affect you and your business?
There are two parts to this legislation. The first concerns children’s wear for those 12 and under. This includes t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, caps or any other type of apparel that will be worn by this age group. This portion of the act controls lead in items. All of our products meet this requirement including screen printed transfers, numbers, and Express names™. Our rhinestone transfers are low lead and do fall within the CPSIA guidelines for general children’s wear, too.
Certification is available if needed.
