In this age, there is a lot of focu
s on the importance of “getting org
anized.” There are even professiona
l organizers for hire! Labels are a
 huge presence in the field of orga
nization, because they enable every
thing to be tagged and put in its p
lace. From birthday party invitatio
ns to mass market mailings to ident
ifying file folders, consumers freq
uently employ labels in their every
day lives. Labels are a convenient
and simple way to increase organiza
tion in business and home settings.

By using the templates provided on
word processing programs, making pe
rsonal labels has become fairly eas
y and much less time consuming than
 writing them by hand. There are se
veral name brand labels and many ge
neric store brands that work with t
he same templates. Labels are avail
able in several different shapes an
d sizes and in color, white, or cle
ar. Some are permanent and others a
re removable. They are tailor-made
for optimum print quality on either
 Inkjet or Laser printers. Labels a
re available for almost any need th
at the consumer may have.

For larger projects and for transfe
rring data from a mailing list in s
preadsheet format to a label templa
te, many people use Mail Merge, a f
eature in Microsoft Word that uploa
ds a list of names and addresses an
d reformats it into easy-to-print l
abels. Even if only one typed label
 is needed, label companies now sel
l detachable labels that can be pri
nted one at a time without wasting
other labels.

The uses for labels are unlimited a
nd include archiving and record kee
ping, shipping, advertising, and or
ganization.

Archiving and Record Keeping

Even in one’s home, the amount of p
apers accumulated in a year from bi
lls, statements, and reports are st
aggering. Businesses collect a much
 higher number of invoices, publica
tions, and correspondence. Sometime
s there is the temptation to throw
it all away, but the day may come w
hen a receipt or invoice from two y
ears ago is needed and the consumer
 is so glad that it was saved. One
way to get rid of all the clutter i
s by archiving the information mont
hly or yearly, according to the amo
unt. Office supply companies sell a
rchiving systems, which include stu
rdy boxes for storage, labels and p
rograms for record keeping, and an
internal filing system for use insi
de the box. This helps tremendously
 in keeping track of the important
communications that have occurred.

Shipping

Labels are necessary when shipping
and mailing various items. Label te
mplates on word processing programs
 offer a wide array of different la
bels, such as large labels for boxe
s, tiny labels for return addresses
, and several sizes in between for
labeling CDs, videotapes, floppy di
sks, and more. Full sheet labels ar
e also available so that the user c
an be creative with their own cut o
uts, graphics and clipart.

Advertising
Many businesses place their company
 logo and tagline on their mailing
labels to make an impression on the
 buyer and create brand familiarity
. For example, mail order companies
 know that it increases the buyer’s
 satisfaction level when they see t
he familiar packaging and label arr
ive at their doorstep. Labels are a
lso used in advertising for mass-ma
rket mailings of brochures, coupons
, offers, and special sales sheets.

Organization

Just about every aspect of life can
 be improved with increased organiz
ation. Labels help the user to achi
eve order by designating specific s
paces for items. There are so many
areas in which organization and lab
els are useful, including safety is
sues, like keeping track of alarm c
odes and times to replace fire dete
ction units. Also, labels assist in
 keeping automobiles current on tun
e-ups, and family members and pets
up-to-date on medical checkups. Hou
sehold chore schedules, gift wrappi
ng area and supplies, coupon clippi
ng, and rummage sales are just some
 of the other areas that are greatl
y helped by the use of labels.
