Classroom and school environments can be a recipe for chaos, with the needs of children of different ages, faculty, parents, and others. To help make life easier for teachers and other school staff, Graphic Products, Inc., has just released a guide to labeling for schools. From bus schedules to fund raisers, classroom directions to sports stickers, this how-to handbook is full of guidance to help education staff implement visual communications with ideas for custom labels, name tents, signs, bumper stickers, sports logos, library labels, and more. Principals, teachers, parents and students will find ways to improve student safety, increase learning, and have fun in this labeling guide written specifically for K-12 schools.

Graphic Products, manufacturer of DuraLabel thermal transfer label printers, has sold many of its printers to school districts, colleges, and universities around the world. In schools, these printers are often used for creating labels, stickers, and signs used indoors or outdoors; in parking lots, cafeterias, classrooms, offices and hallways. The guide encourages users to be creative. Examples of creative labeling ideas possible with a DuraLabel printer include magnetic refrigerator reminders, re-positionable labels, and stickers that can be applied to fabrics. Administrators, fire departments, and emergency rescuers will appreciate schools with large, visible emergency exit signs and labels.

“We’re leveraging our experience in the industrial marketplace to deliver the same high-quality custom label creating experience to our schools,” said Steve Stevenson, chief marketing officer at Graphic Products. “Our intention is stay connected and engaged with this target audience by developing new printers and supplies that exceed their expectations.”

Also in the works from Graphic Products is the Encyclopedia of Labeling, packed with information, tips, and advice to help improve industrial facility cultures and eliminate waste from day-to-day operations. At more than 250 pages, the EOL will encompass several topics related to visual communication and is free of charge.
