At National Band & Tag Co. we are always looking for an identification challenge. We pride ourselves on providing unique and innovative identification solutions for many purposes. Where is this going, you ask? Well, we haven’t started tagging rear ends yet, but the following case study is an example of how a customer came to us with a problem and how we provided them with a solution.
A customer in the sporting apparel industry needed a tag to track inventory from their warehouse to their retail stores all across the country. They needed something heavy duty to stand up to harsh conditions, but still flexible, and that could easily be attached or removed. This customer also wanted to go paperless, so they needed a bar code to scan.
The solution that NB&T came up with for this company was to use our Vinyl Snap Off Tags (Style 144V). These tags are made of vinyl, so they are sturdier than a paper label, but are thin and flexible enough that the customer can staple them to wood pallets. They are also laser etched with a linear bar code, so when scanned, it shows how much inventory should be on that wood pallet, along with which retail store location it is being shipped to. The pallet is scanned at the warehouse and then scanned again at the store to make sure no inventory was lost in transit.
These vinyl asset tags come on a continuous roll or in sheets of 10 so that when a pallet is ready to go, you can snap a tag off the roll and attach it to the pallet. Our newest feature for this tag is an 1/8” hole so they can be nailed to a surface instead of stapled. We are in the business of providing solutions for you and your assets!
