Law Labels

Law labels are typically required on furniture and bedding products. Information required varies by state, so check with your local state government before creating your artwork.

Inform the Consumer

As the name indicates, law labels are typically required by law on bedding and furniture products. They are frequently used to describe the filling materials of the product to ensure that the consumer knows what’s inside.

Follow Regulations

Currently over 30 states require law labels. The regulations may vary state to state, so check with your local municipality before launching your product.

Inform the Retailer

Law labels are also used to make sure retailers know that it's illegal to switch the tags on furniture and bedding products.


Law Labels

Often referred to as “law labels”, these identification tags are designed to inform the consumer of the contents and filling materials that are used in bedding and furniture products. The kinds, types and percentages of filling materials used in the article of furniture must be printed on the label, with the largest percentage shown first.

Law Labels also inform the retailer that it is against the law to remove or switch labels. Law labels are mandatory in most states, which also require a Uniform Registry Number. The URN indicates the state issuing the number and the country in which the product was manufactured. Our law labels are made of Dupont™ Tyvek®, come in multiple sizes, and are available in roll form, fanfolded or in stacks.

"We decided that an expanded content label (ECL) would work best for us since we had a lot of information that we wanted to communicate. So we called around, spoke to several printers, and kept getting the same answer: 'Sorry, but we can't design an ECL to fit the shape of the bottle’. By the time I spoke with Western Shield, I was wondering if we would be able to do the label at all. Well, they were fantastic from day one. They immediately started working with me to find a solution and developed an ECL that was not only aesthetically pleasing but communicated all the necessary information to the consumer. They were always quick to return my calls and, in general, made the whole process easier than I could have ever imagined."
