It never ceases to amaze me on the kinds of questions we get about about labels.
For fun sometimes, I think up potential customers questions and answers to help our customer service department. Here’s one I just dreamt up…
Customer: “What are postage tray tags used for…?”
“Pardon me?”, I say, half surprised, half annoyed.
The voice on the other side asks again, “What are your postage tray tags used for…?”
My reaction is to answer the question with another, like… “Do you know who’s buried in Grant’s tomb?” but I pass on the opportunity to be a smart aleck especially to a potential customer!
“Well,” I reply, trying not to sound too dumbfounded, “believe it or not, postage tray tags are used on postage trays.” Imagine that concept?
“Could I use them for cookie trays?” comes back the customer’s reply.”Sure,” I say, “You can use these labels for whatever you r heart desires. They are not Just for postage trays”
“Really!” was the surprised revelation heard on the other end of the line.
“Yes, really…” I calmly reply, “They are only called postage tray tags because they were specifically designed and made for the mailing industry and their postage trays. But, if that size works for your particular labeling application then by all means you can use them.”
“You know sir”, I explain, “It’s sort of like using address labels without printing an address on it.”
“Or, it’s like using a mailing label on a file folder.”
“Or, it’s like using a circle label on a square box…”
“Or, using a file folder label on an mailing envelope.”
OK, I’ll admit, I got slightly carried away with the answer. But, hopefully, we’ve no doubt made it clear that the name of the label has nothing ( in most cases) to do with how or what you use the label for… just look at postage tray labels!
