Figure a cheaper, perhaps corn based sticker mimicking the gold foil background ovals currently employed.

       You should get the Chinese to manufacture tiny "Made in the USA" stickers, to be attached to the aforementioned "Made in China" stickers.

       Brilliant! Since the Chinese will have to purchase one of these for every item they export to the USA, all that's needed is to set the price appropriately and viola: no more balance of trade problem.

       You'd need a smaller label to affix to the larger label explaining what country the label was made in. [oops - sorry Wrongfellow - that's exactly what you already said!]

       It should be made in the US, but written in Chinese.

Recursion alert!

       And the product has to be shipped to the labelling factory, rather than ship the labels.

       And spell it wrong.

       // And spell it wrong. //   

       Yes, maybe it could be made from colored aluminum.

       Protectionism disguised as a sticker. Nobody will ever suspect.

       //Nobody will ever suspect.// Darn! Do you really think they'd cotton on?

       better make it a stamp. nobody has ever done that.

       The Chinese will declare the space within their exported label printers PRC air-space.
