In the fur industry, factories and workshops engaged in fur processing are very sensitive to their reputation. For this reason, skinning is more the exception to the rule. The productions which are engaged in such trade in the market, do not stay long in a market. Usually, before launching into operation, the customer specifies with what minimum, with a maximum amount, it is convenient to start. The party goes to work and goes through all the stages separately. Such cooperation takes place solely on trust and at the end should not cause controversial issues. Since the manufacture of skins consists of several stages and a variety of processes, living people work in the production. There is a human factor and a small proportion of the probability of mixing up the goods. In practice, there were cases when inexperienced customers bought low-grade raw materials for the price of the first grade and were disappointed with the finished result, which in turn led to unreasonable allegations of substitution and of course to conflict. Quite often, people who have just begun to learn the fur industry, ask quite logical question. How do I know that I am taking the finished products from the raw materials that I gave for processing? In order to avoid controversial issues and unreasonable allegations to the skins before starting the work, it is recommended to mark or stamp them at the end of the processing process and getting finished products.
There are many ways to mark raw materials or skins before starting. From elementary breakdown with a cut out asterisk on a piece of pipe, to special machines. On the dressed skins before painting it is possible to burn your logo with the stigma. But the most common method to stamp skins is a custom-made hammer. The label on the skin must be clearly visible, pierced through and stand in one place on the whole lot. This will greatly facilitate the sorting of hides during operation, and verification upon receipt. When choosing a place where to put a stigma, it should be remembered that if the edges are furrowed, the skins can be trimmed, the noses or the head can be cut off, so the indent from the edge should be about five cm. head can not be clipped can be put between the ears or eyes. For raw materials that are obtained by hunting, the stigma should have a distinct logo, the usual breakdowns can be easily confused with traces of shot. Not the best idea to put tags on the hind legs, especially from the edge. When you bring raw materials with a stamp, you should indicate this on the reception that it is labeled, this will facilitate the formation of the batch and speed up the launch process, especially if the batch is small. As practice shows, the worst of the ideas is to do production checks. For example, set the points in different places with a gypsy needle, and then try to find them after dressing or other processes. Typically, such actions lead to wasted your time, and not only yours, but also create conflict situations. The fact is that after dressing and not only the skin sits down a bit and the thin stamp is invisible. The skin will have to pull to see such a stigma, and most importantly guess that this is the label.
One more way to mark expensive luxury furs is tags with a bar code, on the principle of a seal. But it should be remembered that in places where seals hang it is impossible to produce high-quality processing of the skins.
In any case, remember that stamping raw materials does not in any way measure the degree of your trust; this is a normal workflow that makes sorting skins easier during processing.
