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 Printing, Vinyl Prints and Digital Prints.
The second part of the legislation concerns infant and toddler items for those 3 and under that will be using for sleeping and eating such as pajamas and bibs. If you are decorating these items you will want to use Digital Prints which meets these requirements. Certification is available if needed.
