Beginning Saturday, September 21, 2013, West Hollywood retailers will become the only city in the U.S where it is illegal to sell clothing made with fur. Retailers in West Hollywood will be given citations if caught selling fur items by the Code Compliance Department, according to California Apparel News.
A ticket for a first offense will cost $200 with a $50 administrative fee, second offense $400 with the $50 administrative fee and a third offense would be $800. Three tickets in a calendar year could result in a misdemeanor for the shopkeeper.
The ban will specifically prohibit retailers from selling clothing made with fur, even small items such as gloves, hats, scarves and boots. Fur trimming on such items will also fall under this ban. This is just the beginning for animal rights activists, as Fur Free West Hollywood is pushing their agenda on other cities.

50 years of rotary screen technology
This year we have a special 50 year anniversary; it was the year 1963 that we introduced the very first rotary screen for the textile printing industry at the ITMA show in Hannover. Our rotary screen caused a revolution in the printing industry: it offered a big step forward in volumes and design freedom for printers.
With RSI (Rotary Screen Integration), label printers can produce special effects and access extra functionality that cannot be achieved by any other printing process. Reliable and economical value-added production of the 'non-label look', metallic and opaque colours, glitters, tactile warning symbols, texture varnishes, scratch-off inks and many other effects can be applied using our RSI technology.
“Looking back in time I am proud to say that Stork Prints products and innovations created a standard in the textile and graphic printing industries. As of today our products create an added value solution in optical and functional design for end users. Looking at global trends in the market I am confident to say that we have chosen the right direction in the past and more importantly, for the future in digital and rotary screen printing.”
