Macy's recently contacted me as they are requesting changes to their 128 labels. Below is the full email I recently received. Is this something you guys will implement or is this something I can alter myself? If I can make the changes (see Zones G and H, which are highlighted below), can you direct me where to go? Thanks for any help.
(Start Email from Macy's)
In an effort to expedite replenishment merchandise to the selling floor, we are asking that the following modifications be made to all GS1 128 labels:
- If qualifier RE is in the BEG 02 segment of the EDI 850 Purchase Order, “REPLENISHMENT” should be noted in ZONE G. If the EDI 850 Purchase Order does not contain the RE qualifier in the BEG 02, no additional notation is necessary. Use a minimum of 20 point bold font.
- The FOB Description, currently in ZONE H, should be printed in ZONE G, below the “REPLENISHMENT” notation (if applicable). The FOB Description is transmitted in the REF 02 segment, PG qualifier, in the EDI 850 Purchase Order. Use a minimum of 20 point bold font.
- The STORE ADDRESS, as detailed in the Small Ticket, Big Ticket or Jewelry/Fashion Accessories Store to DC Listing, should be printed in Zone H below the store number. Font size may vary depending on length of address and available space in this zone.
These changes will be incorporated
into the 2017 publication of the Macy’s, Inc. Vendor Standards however, we encourage and appreciate
implementation of these new guidelines as soon as possible.
For your convenience, a sample label and zone descriptions have been included in this communication.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact your Vendor Account Analyst or call 513-782-1409.
