The Tobacco Vendor Education Best Practice Recommendations, is an outline of recommended policies and procedures for tobacco retailers. The Michigan Tobacco Retailer Kit provides a more thorough look at those practices and provides retailers with information on Michigan tobacco laws and penalties.
Tobacco retailers are required to display both the Youth Tobacco Act sign, and the "birth year" sign. The state will mail these signs out and/or I will personally deliver them to your store shortly after the first of the year. If you need replacements or extra signs please feel free to contact me or use one of the following links to print them off directly.
