How do you "label" a white label product?

by 1 replies
Hey there, I'm looking for a resource or information on labeling a white label product (for consumption). I'm pretty new at this. Is it as simple as sticking a label with all relevant information and ingredients on it, or do people typically hire lawyers? I can't afford a lawyer, and was going to start very small, purchasing around 50 items or so, and then scaling up from there.

Here's a second part to a question (regarding another product). Say my wholesaler has their own brand but also offers white label, can I just copy their original label (as far as information goes) and rebrand it?

Thank you.

    "Labelling" in this case doesnt only mean to just put the informational label on it, but eventually also using your own color scheme, print logos on it etc., basically changing the overall appearance of the item (while still keeping it the same in its shape).

    You don't need a lawyer for this AS LONG as the product you sell isn't patented. Chinese suppliers don't care about this, but lets say you private label a product and sell it in the US but some company in the US has a patent on this product, they can screw you. Its actually what happened to me recently, we were private labelling a product but didn't do our homework on that one completely. In the end we barely sold anything before they came after us and left us with a 2k fine + 2k stock worthless.

    This is not the usual case, just a reminder that there ARE certain products/product types that can be patented and protected. Obviously this doesn't apply to the most common items that are commodity-like. So in general, no, you don't need a lawyer for this.
