Let Loose With Labels In Your Office

Dying to get your office organised? You’re probably thinking that a great place to start is with labels, and you’re right!

Don’t Leave Me This Way

Lost your stapler? Sticky tape gone missing? Ruler gone for a walk? When you’re mid-task or rushing to a meeting, you don’t want to stop to search for your favourite desk tools.

By labelling your items with Avery Durable Heavy Duty Labels you can make sure the things that get borrowed or misplaced are returned. (Make sure you use heavy duty labels. They’re dirt resistant and tear proof and will stand up to the wear and tear they’ll face as your sticky tape makes its way around the office.) You can write your name and a nice message like “Please return me to Claire” or “I belong to Tracy and she misses me”. Your message might even make your colleagues smile as they return your missing stapler!

Can’t find your notepad with all those important notes? From the front, your notepad probably looks the same as everyone else’s. The quick way to identify yours is to put a large label on the front with your name. Add a great photo or background to make it easy to spot (and to add some fun to your day!). An A4 Avery Shipping Label is completely opaque (it’s a feature called TrueBlock®), so you can’t see through to the boring pattern underneath.

You can print out sheets with common equipment types like “camera”, “docking station” and “monitor” and leave them on each colleague’s desk.

Label Ch-ch-changes

Sometimes you want a long lasting label, other times you know it will need to change soon. Say you’re working on a project and want to label your project folders with notes. You know you’ll have finished your project in a few weeks and will want to repurpose your folders. When the project finishes, you won’t want those labels on there. That’s what Avery Removable Labels are for! You can apply them and then remove them later. Use them on your project files and short term storage boxes. They’ll help you identify things for the period you need to, and re-use your box or file afterwards. Sounds like a great money-saver!
