What Roles Do Labels and Tags Play for Companies?

Labels and Tags

Labels and tags are found everywhere, and companies use these in many different ways to help them with what they require. Some of these needs are for marketing and advertising purposes, while other needs are for tagging and branding. Still a few more of these tags are used to help discourage people from stealing the items these are on, and a few even help deter product piracy.

To help you understand the many roles tags and labels play, here are some of the more commonly known uses for these and what these can do for the businesses that utilize them:

Destructible Vinyl Tags - labels made out of this particular material, and other materials that are tamper evident, help companies deter theft from within their business. These tags show signs of tampering or are difficult to remove, which usually discourages people from continuing with what they are planning on doing. Labels that are considered destructible are those that fall apart when people try to remove them. You can find many labels like this in supermarkets, since these businesses usually use these for price tag stickers to dissuade people from switching the price of one item with another in order to pay less for a more expensive item.

Inventory and Asset Tags – these are metal nameplates or labels that are attached to items that a company owns and wants to keep track of. These can carry barcodes on them or these may be something as simple as a tag that has a space for the asset number or code which people will need to fill in. For these tags to be effective at what they are supposed to do, the company using these has to have a system that puts these numbered or barcoded tags to good use.

Model and Serial Number Tags – some of these are made out of aluminum foil labels, some are made out of metal plates, and still a few more are made out of other materials that are used for labeling or tagging. These carry the name of the company that manufactured the items these are on, the model information of the item, and the unique serial number of the individual piece it is attached to. The purpose of this kind of a tag is for the consumer and the manufacturer to use when troubleshooting is needed, when repairs are required, and when warranties need to be checked. These are also used to help companies keep track of everything that they made and sold, and is what makes product recalls easier and more efficient.
