Non-mandatory ID Under 25 poster

Asking for someone’s ID can either make them happy or upset—and sometimes, it’s hard to tell if a patron is 18 or older. However, it is illegal to sell to anyone under 18; you must ask for an ID to verify the age of anyone who appears under the age of 25.

The ID-under-25 poster can be displayed in your store to help clarify the under-25 ID policy. The poster is not mandatory.
