    I am looking to personalise products and then resell them but am unsure where I stand legally. Many of the products I’m buying wholesale but one of the products I’m looking to sell is cushion covers and the cheapest place I’ve found to buy these from is Ikea. I would then add a name or other personalised message and resell them. Can I do this? And if so would I be able to put my own labels on them or do I need to keep the Ikea labels on them? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Worth asking Ikea.
    They would be the ones annoyed at you. Worth checking with them before you buy the products wholesale.

    Some stuff is sold with intention of personalisation. Rebranding is where you need to be careful.
