Made In China


As with almost anything you buy these days, affixed somewhere on the product is a sticker that says Made in China.

That got me to wondering as I sometimes like to do and I came up with this question: Are the Made in China stickers made in China?

Since I don't know anyone in China to ask I did the next best thing: I Googled the question. It seems that there is a fan page on Facebook devoted to this exact question and over 14,000 peole have liked it. But, it didn't give me the answer.

Next, down the list on the Google search page was a company called ULINE from Pleasant Prairie, WI, and they do make the Made in China stickers.

What about that?

The product may be made in China, but the part that holds everything together (the sticker) is made right here in the good old USA.

And they say Americans don't make anything anymore...

Fascinating. I wonder if China made the machines that produce the stickers?

And the stickers should have a tiny sticker on it saying "Made in the USA".

Thank you for visiting us.
Made in China stickers are made in US. Interesting; should go under the tag, "just fancy that!" :)

Can it be that the factory making the "Made in China" stickers are Chinese or of Chinese origin?
