FineLine Technologies, Inc. announced that it has been selected to be the exclusive supplier of all price tickets, tags and labels for rue21. In addition to outsourcing all ticket production to FineLine Technologies, rue21 and its vendor community will also be utilizing FastTrak, FineLine’s web based system for ordering, tracking, and managing the retail ticketing process, making it easy for retailers and their vendors to place and track orders.
