Best way to label your boxes/bins of stamps and related material?

Post by Jeffsw3 »

Hello,

Just interested in the different ways that you label the boxes or bins that contain stamps or stamp-related-material.

Here is how I do it:

I get those clear sticky-backed business card holders to apply to the various bins, boxes, notebooks, or albums.

Then I print or write the contents on blank business card stock. It is real clean and easy to change the label by inserting a new business card stock.

I seriously doubt there is a “best way” - whatever works for you is the right answer.

But to respond to the question, I have been using the following:

As the contents of the stock books change the labels easily peel off and can be replaced.

I don’t claim it is rocket science or good looking but it suits my purpose.

I guess there are a million different ways to label stuff, well maybe not a million. :-)

I was just curious about what method other people use.
