Read what companies told us in our recent Industry Survey

In a recent Survey we did of the Industry we spoke to dozens of companies with many years
of experience to get their opinions on Tags and Inventory Control. If you're using a Tag or
looking to improve it, you'll want to read the frank feedback we got about what works best, for
the least price.

These Log, Sawmill and Lumber companies also told us what they found are the most reliable
ways to use a Tag for Controlling and Tracking their Inventory - to get the greatest efficiency.

A Summary of What Log, Saw Mill and Lumber Companies Said About Staple-On Tags and Hammer Tags

1. Speed and Ease of Use

Describing the Staple On Log Tags she gets from us, Cathy Butler of Amos-Hill Associates
said "that it advanced the whole department....they get more work done with less man hours."
They previously used Hammer Tags. She said "it is a whole lot easier for the guys to put the tags on and they stay on through the whole process.

Andis Logging said about our Staple On Barcode Tags: "It totally changed our
the yard they know exactly what they're doing"...before they would go out with a wasn't
real exact. You turned things around for us. Everyone in the industry should use it."
Sami Ragsdale, Office Manager at Andis Logging

2. Cost and Durability

Another company said that “a lot of people see the tags they use [Staple On Tags] as more
time consuming than the Hammertags, but he said that the Hammer Tags are only a little more efficient in the field – and they cost a lot more money to use.”

“In the field where the logs are exposed to many more difficult weather conditions, the hammer type  tags stay on better” they said.

Note: We are doing testing with some of the newer, tougher materials made specifically to
deal with harsh conditions.

Tracking with Tags – preferably the more efficient Barcode Tags - will improve efficiency and
