My company, Safety Emporium, is looking for new label/tag suggestions for our product lineup.  In particular, we're looking for designs/needs/applications that are generally overlooked or address unique corporate/government/institutional requirements.  The kind of label you might have difficulty finding at one of the major suppliers or have always wanted but never found.  Labels/signs one might buy/need in small quantities rather than rolls of 1,000.

For example, a customer recently told us that California vehicle regulations say that a FIRE EXTINGUISHER INSIDE label such as m/?00021 is not sufficient - the label must include an arrow pointing towards the extinguisher.  So we'll be working up a new set of similar labels that incorporates a detachable arrow.  Likewise, we had a couple different people ask for a 4" square label that says FIRST AID KIT INSIDE, so we recently started offering those: m/?00600   We'll be expanding that to spill kit, emergency breathing apparatus, fire hose, and fire hose/extinguisher inside as well.  We will also be offering 2" high magnetic labels for cylinders that say FULL, IN USE, EMPTY, DEFECTIVE, DO NOT USED, REORDER etc.

We can't give any monetary rewards, but if we decide to offer your suggested label as one of our regularly offered items, we'll certainly be happy to mail you a couple as thanks.

Some guidance for those willing to help us out:

We can currently print labels up to 4" wide and essentially unlimited length.

Labels can be any shape - rectangular, square, round, oval, die-cut shapes (stars, etc.)

The label substrate materials include indoor/outdoor vinyl or polyester, removable vinyl, glow-in-the-dark, magnetic tape, reflective tape, metallized tape, cold-weather application, and static cling material (like those they stick on your windshield at oil change places).

The colors for vinyl/polyester background can be white, yellow, red, green, blue, black, brown, gold, gray, purple, orange, clear, pink, tan, light blue, sky blue, or ochre.

The print colors can be black, white, red, blue, green, magenta, yellow, orange.  Single color printing is cheaper and easier to produce than labels with 2, 3, 4 or blended colors.

Standard headers such as CAUTION, DANGER, NOTICE etc. are easy to incorporate.  Various arrows, PPE icons, prohibition/warning symbols and HazMat symbols can also be included.

Think not only of chemical/laboratory applications, but warehouse, stockroom, maintenance, equipment/asset ID, quality control, cold room, shop, machinery, valve etc. sorts of uses.  For example, the magnetic tape substrate is easily moved and works well on industrial pallet racks, but does anyone have a need for stock printed signs/labels this size?

You can respond directly to me, esupport**At_Symbol_Here**, or the list (if you think others would be interested in hearing your suggestion/need/tale of woe/insight).  If you want to include a sketch, that would be swell, too.

Thanks in advance,

Rob Toreki
