Teacher 2 Teacher Tagging Instructions

We appreciate your attention to details as you prepare your items!

EXPRESS – Our T2T Express tagging system is fast, simple, and easy to use. Our computerized system allows you to automatically format and generate barcodes online for all your sale items. Each barcode is encrypted with your seller#, item price and discount information. Barcodes are placed directly on the items sold. Barcodes are scanned at the time of purchase. Barcodes allow us to track the number of items sold, prices of all items sold, as well as, your earnings.

Note: Items without barcodes will not be sold.

Before you begin
  • Prepare your items. Please visit Preparing Your Items before you begin generating your express or custom tags. There you will find helpful guidelines, tips and instructions to assist you.

  • Group / Sort your items by price / discount. Please visit our Pricing Guidelines before you begin grouping your items. After reviewing our pricing guidelines, determine the price you want to sell each item and group all of your items by price. Competitively price your items. PRICE TO SELL!! Next, determine which items in each group you want to sell for half-price the last day of the sale. Sort the priced groups into two groups,discount and no discount.

  • Gather tagging materials. The basic materials for each tagging option is listed below. For a complete list of materials, you may need, visit our Preparing Your Items. Barcodes are required on all items sold. Items without barcodes wll not be sold. For more information about barcode labels, visit Barcode FAQ.

    • EXPRESS - Our computerized system allows you to automatically format and generate barcodes online for all your sale items. EXPRESS tagging allows you to adhere the barcode directly to your sale item(s). Barcodes MUST be printed on labels that are compatible with “Avery Template 5160 or 8160. These labels will be 1" x 2 5/8. If you do not use labels that correspond to Avery 5160 or 8160, your barcodes may print off the label and be unusable.

  • Check your printer and adjust printing options. Make sure your printer is working properly so barcodes will be legible. Align your cartridge, using the printer’s software utility, to ensure your barcodes print with clean, clear, sharp, straight lines. Set your printer to print in the “normal” mode. See Barcode Printing Tips for additional printing information.

Tagging Instructions

Once you’ve completed the above steps, you’ll be ready to order and print your barcodes.

  • Log in - Once your account has been created, Log in to your consignor homepage located at the top right hand corner of our website using your assigned consignor number and password.





  • Group Items - Please visit our Pricing Guidelines before you begin grouping your items. After reviewing our pricing guidelines, determine the price you want to sell each item and group all of your items by price.
    NOTE: You get to set your own price. For tips and suggestions on how to price your items, we suggest you visit our Pricing Guidelines. All merchandise must be priced in increments of $.50; there are to be no items under $.50. When deciding on the price, keep in mind the type of product, condition of the item, year, demand, etc. A general rule of thumb is to price items at the level you would be willing to pay for them in their current new or gently used state.
  • Sort Item Groups - Items may be sold at 50% off the last day of our sale. If you would like to sell items for ½ price you will need to indicate that when ordering your barcodes. We recommended that you sort your already grouped items by price into two groups –Discount YES and Discount – NO.

  • Complete the barcode worksheet – Once you have sorted your items by price (and whether you wish to sell them 50% off the last day of the sale) use our Barcode Worksheet to determine the number of barcodes you will need. (ex. 10 @ $1.00, 5 @ $1.00 No Disc, 5 @ $3.00, 8 @ $3.00 No Dis, etc.)

  • Order barcodes – Return to your consignor homepage and select Order Barcode labels located on the right-hand side of your homepage. Use your Barcode Worksheet, to enter the price you want on the labels and # of labels at that price. Next, indicate if you want those items discounted ½ price the last day of our sale. Click the Submit Barcode button. Your submitted information will appear at the bottom of order box. .



  • Submit Order - After you submit your barcode order, your barcodes will be available to be viewed/printed. To view or print your order click the Submit Order button. The barcodes are designed to print on Avery labels (template 5160 or 8160), 30 labels per sheet. You will need Adobe Reader software in order to view and print your barcode labels. We highly recommended that you review Barcode FAQ prior to printing.

  • Check printer & adjust printing options - Make sure your printer is working properly so barcodes will be legible. Align your cartridge, using the printer’s software utility, to ensure your barcodes print with clean, clear, sharp, straight lines. Set your printer to print in the “normal” mode. See Barcode Printing Tips prior to printing.
    NOTE: Barcodes MUST be printed on labels that are compatible with "Avery Template 5160 or 8160". These labels will be 1" x 2 5/8". If you don't use labels that correspond to Avery Template 5160 or 8160, your barcode may print off the label and be unusable. NOTE: If you have labels that ARE these template numbers, but your barcodes still print off the label, see Barcode Printing Tips below for simple steps to fix the problem. Labels following Avery Template 5160 and 8160 standards come in a variety of brands and quantities and can be purchased for inkjet or laser printers. Different brands and quantities will have different product numbers, but labels that can be used to print GKS barcodes will say "Use Avery Template 5160 or 8160" or "Compatible with Avery Template 5160 or 8160" somewhere on the package.

  • Print barcodes - Once you submit an order, you will get a batch number. You can follow the on-screen instructions to print your labels immediately, or you can login to your Consignor Homepage at a later date and select the batch number you wish to print. Barcode orders may be re-printed as many times as you need. Note that it is always a good idea to print on a blank sheet of paper first to check your printer alignment against a sheet of labels before printing on your actual labels. Check your labels on your test sheet to ensure that your labels are scannable. See Barcode Printing Tips prior to printing.
    NOTE: If you put in an order for 1 label, you will waste 29 labels on your sheet, so it's best to wait until you have 30 labels then place an order. You do not have to print 30 labels of the same price -- the system supports multiple prices on a single sheet.

    DON'T WAIT until the last minute to buy and print your labels when store quantities may be running low. BUY them TODAY! OR...save yourself a potential dry-run and order ONLINE! Ordering online and having them shipped to the store is often FREE and they are held at the store under your name! See links below. You can typically find these labels sold in quantities of 300, 750, 1500, and 3000. You can save the extras for future sales, or consider splitting a package with a friend

    You have now completed printing your barcodes. It as easy as 1, 2, 3! You can repeat an additional order, or re-print, as many times as you need.

  • Tag your items – Now that your barcodes are printed.

See Preparing Your Items to review how to properly adhere your barcodes.

  1. Adhere your barcodes directly to your sale item(s).
  2. Indicate items you would like donated or have returned to you by following the steps below.

    • If you want to donate an item that does not sell, you MUST use a yellow highlighter to draw a line directly through the barcode. DO NOT USE a yellow marker. A yellow marker will make your barcode unscannable. See the barcode example below.



    • If you want an item that does not sell returned to you, do not mark through the barcode. See the barcode example below.
