Re: Instrument case name tags
About 10 years ago district hired an outside company to do inventory. They put barcode stickers on all instrument cases and instrument without case (like cymbals, no joke). None of the stickers lasted the year. Now, they have us put tags on each one with the barcode on it. Less than half the tags are on the cases by the end of the year. But, the tag don't come out of my budget so it doesn't bother me. Of course, even before the first barcode 10 years ago, we labeled all of our instrument cases with the district name, school name, instrument S/N, district ID number, and year of purchase on no less than three sides of the case in paint pen. Even cases that I first did 16 years ago have the same markings and have never had to be retouched or redone.
