CPSIA Law Compliance for ink users

For our customers to assure themselves of compliance with CPSIA laws, there is no lead content in our inks on this site. MSDS files available for reviewing.
 
Frstly, the inks are safe in their wet form and we have MSDS certificates.
The thing you need to realize is the "state change" of wet inks versus printed "dried inks" and this is especially important with heat pressing whereby the inks are now also heat treated and literally burned into the media which is even more so "treated and state changed" than even just printed/dried inks.
Can children safely handle books and other printed matter in the household?
Do you need a certificate of compliance for all printed matter you purchase or all printed matter you create in-house?
So in essence the printed/dried/pressed inks are even safer than the wet inks.
You handle the wet inks but your customers only receive treated/dried/pressed garments and printed matter.
 
To properly comply with CPSIA laws you are the manufacturer of the final garment, not us.
Your organization is the one that needs to provide the CPSIA documents.
We realize you feel some protection is in order from your manufacturers/suppliers but we are an ink supplier and not a manufacturer of garments.
 
The best we can do for you is to supply you with MSDS (material safety data sheets) showing the contents, handling and safety instructions.
We understand your concerns and appreciate your diligence in making responsible products for children and customers and we respect that.
 
Suffice it to say you are in no danger here of non-compliance and you are also using a very safe product and manufacturing it with very safe base chemicals to begin with (even before they are pressed). Once pressed and/or state changed from liquids to solids they are even safer. Your responsibility and liability for toys would be much higher than your pressed garments for instance.
