Sorry for the question, but could you tell me what ‘DYI' means?

Hi Aaron and Russel,

The GS1 Vocabulary as currently defined has a limited number of properties that relate purely to DYI products but there is interest from our community to start building out the Vocabulary to cover these types of products.  Our community includes many suppliers and retailers in the DYI space.

We are very open to working with you or anyone else on this effort.

Best Regards

Hi Russell,

Without going into a great deal of detail here, the Product schema is fundamentally generic, whereas the properties you're exploring are very much domain-specific.  So depending on what benefit you hope to derive from declaring such properties, you may indeed well wish to explore building your own external extension.

Alternately and/or additionally, you'll definitely want to take a look at the GS1 Web Vocabulary [1], which is a far more products-focused external extension, and accordingly has a much broader range of properties available for use. [2]

Finally, also check out the The Product Types Ontology [3].  While this won't necessarily make more product categories available for your use, through the use of additionalType you can at least make much more granular product declarations.

Hi Everyone,
I have been looking at the current product schema that are in the product item scope of property, but they are not very robust for the itemtypes/itemprops that are offered.

I have around 150 different itemprops I'd like to propose, but wanted to understand if there are any suggestions or rules around this?

I could always build a proprietary extension of types, but would much rather do this so that it benefits everyone in the product schema (

Here are some examples I believe could be useful to add - I have many more based on our current use:

Abrasion Resistance

Additional Protection Features

Adhesion to Foam

Adhesive Color

Adhesive Content

Adhesive Controltac/Comply

Adhesive Features

Adhesive Type

Alternative Sale Availability

Application / Industry

Application Category

Application Method

Application Surface

Application Temperature (Celsius)


Aspect Ratio

Attachment Type

Any insight would be great.
