Label Falling Off

November 19, 2012

One the biggest issues we had with the collection were the labels on the folders. The adhesive used did not stand up to the test of time and they fall off with the slightest touch. Most photos were labeled on the reverse so we did not lose any information. However a labeled folder is always preferable per time constraints. How do we solve this? It is not advisable to place the label in the folder as the adhesive will migrate to the photo. Similarly, using a staple or even a plastic paper clip is not ideal. Needless to say we went through a lot of pencils writing the description on labels.
