Color coding label uses

Dot labels have so many uses in business and office settings. Use them to organize documents with each color representing specific criteria such as name, date, or priority. They can also be used for routing files, with each color representing where it goes and to what department. This makes work easier and faster by only having to glance at the color to know information. Keep track of office supplies by using dots for inventory control. Choose one color for each item (pens, paper, or toner), and when stickers run out then it’s time for more of that item. For small stores or garage sales, use write-on round color coding labels to mark prices. They can even be used to cover up sensitive or private information on documents without harming the ink beneath.

Common round paper label features

While there is a large variety of self-adhesive labels, there are a few common features found with many product options. Some common features include:

  • Pre-printed letter or numbered labels that eliminate the need to print or write on labels
  • Different packaging options such as sheets with rows of labels or rolls with one long line of dots
  • Size variations from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches
  • Shapes are usually round dots, but also available as squares or rectangles
  • Strong adhesive that sticks to most flat surfaces, but removes easily when not needed
  • Popular color options include red, yellow, blue, or more

Printing on color coding labels

It is possible to write on coding dots with a pen, or use a printer. Most labels are compatible with both inkjet and laser printers. Some, such as neon colors, will only work with laser printers. Always check the packaging for printer information before purchasing so you know the product will work with your printer. Some companies, such as Avery®, provide free templates for printing on labels without worry about words going over the edges.
