Most people seem to think, if they want to label something, all they need to do is get a label and attach it. Not so. Nowadays, a simple label is rarely good enough, form a variety of perspectives. While there are a lot of uses for the simple label, one of the most important things they are lacking is reusability.
Most labels are permanent, and completely unchangeable. So once you've stuck the label to something, you can't remove it, and you can't alter it. I'm sure you can easily see all the ways in which this is a problem. Now, what you may not be aware of, is that there is a solution to this problem. You simply need to get a label holder.
There are plenty of label holders to choose from, ranging from the simple yet popular plastic sleeves, to various more advanced designs. So depending on what you need, it shouldn't be hard to find a suitable one.
First of all, a label holder is much more adaptable. A lot of holders, including the popular snap-on holder, are designed specifically to be easier to remove and attached elsewhere. In addition to this, the fact that it is a label holder rather then a label, makes it much easier to change what it says.
The second advantage is the low cost. Although a label holder itself will obviously be more expensive then a label, if you or your company has a large number of things that need to be labeled, it will be much more economical to buy label holders once, then labels many times. Once you have the label holders you can then easily print labels yourself.
The third advantage is durability. Your average label will get torn or fade and in a surprisingly short amount of time become completely useless. By contrast, a label holder gives much better protection to the labels, allowing them to last longer as well as be more easily replaced.
Label holders are a longer lasting, cheaper, reusable, alternative to standard labels- not to mention easier to fix if they break. Given this, it seems obvious what to do- the next time you need to label some things, find somewhere to get label holders from, instead of just getting labels. It's not hard to find a supplier of label holders, any more then it is to find someone willing to sell you labels, or anything eels for that matter. However, it can be hard to find somewhere good to get them from, particularly in bulk.
The answer, of course, is looking back at you right now- you can order online. I know, you have probably heard a number of reports of scams and bad sales over the internet, but as long as you're careful it's actually a good place to buy from. Sure, there are a lot of people out to rip you off, but that's true of anywhere. Nevertheless, there are plenty of people online who are extremely good people to work and trade with.
All you have to do, is figure out how to get to them. Again, this is something that may seem difficult, but is actually not that hard. Especially considering that "label holders" is not a field commonly searched for, and so is much less likely that you will find frauds there then elsewhere. If you want to be quite sure, then check out some forums, and ask others for advice. There are even a fair number of reliable security sites, that offer reviews and appraisals and will alert you to any scams being run. So have a look at them, too.
So go on, go online, and check out your options. Even if you don't intend to buy anything, you may well find yourself surprised at the variety and value available with the click of a mouse.
