RE: The tariff classification of printed “exchange cards” from China.

Dear Mr. Carroll:

In your letter dated January 15, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Four samples identified as “exchange cards” were submitted for our examination. Each is a printed, 24” x 30” sheet of white paperboard that has been folded in half. In each instance, the printing on the face and interior consists of a message related to a graduation (e.g., “Congratulations to a grad who’s absolutely tops!”) accompanied by a picture or design. The back panel bears company information, country of origin and a bar code, but is otherwise blank. The printing appears to have been produced by a lithographic process. You list the four styles as follows:

Item # Description

84197020-402 “Mortar Boards”
84197020-403 “Grad Professor”
84197020-404 “Fireworks”

The applicable subheading for all of the above items will be 4911.99.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other (non-enumerated) printed matter: printed on paper in whole or in part by a lithographic process. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Carl Abramowitz at 646-733-3037.
