Title: Custom Festool green LARGE FONT Systainer labels...$1.00 each
Post by: Woozal on September 11, 2017, 04:04 PM
So I was glancing at a stack of systainers and wondering how to tell right away what was in a systainer other than looking at those tiny labels with those tiny fonts printed on them and I was wondering if anybody would be interested in quick identification of contents like in the pics.

I have the festool font and festool green and deep blackish blue colors to cut out individual letters in whatever size someone would want. I covered four sides of my two systainers and CT-48 too. These apply with just your fingers and are pre-spaced for you. I'm just seeing if there's an interest in this kinda stuff. These are self adhesive vinyl letters.

I can mail these in an envelope to anyone. $1.00 per label and you should do 3 sides so just $3.00 per Systainer fully labeled. The lettering could be customizable in whatever size you want and whatever you want them to say. If you have a single color rendering of your business logo I can do that too. I just made the festool label for myself. I don't want to offer any label that has "FESTOOL" on it so as to oblige the copyright but tool name and other text is open game.

I just put up a video of the application procedure....very easy. View it on YouTube below.

The last thing I would need is my name on them, it more that there are a bunch that all look the same the labels are gone. (but on a worksite a name would be good)
It is like discovering the state of Schrödinger's cat when I open a box.

I am interested.

Holmz, you win one systainer set for free since you are the first to show interest. I thought I would put my name on this sample to show you all that do on-site work that it would be important to mark a Systainer as your own with a name or company logo. Maybe even a phone number in case it's left behind.

I was thinking if you want a set of these stickers for a systainer, send me what you want it today and where and size and color and I'll make you up a free set. You have to agree to send me photos once on the boxes so I can let others know. PM your particulars....no $ involved for this free set. Thanks for your interest.

I wonder if the adhesive characters would remain glued to the surface of the systainers because it is not flat but rather "bumpy". I can imagine they start to loosen at the edges after a while. If there is no problem with that I'm interested. Sending them over to Europe would not be a very expensive because the would fit in an enveloppe, I guess.

Thanks for posting- great idea.  My tools usually remain in the shop, so the labels I would be interested in are the ones you show on the front of the systainer that shows the tool name/number.  Are they peel and stick?

Gerald

Labels look great. Personally, I'm not interested in them, however.

I am currently doing labels using the credit card plastic inserts. Print on office paper, bold lettering in a understandable code (eg RO15 with a line under it in smaller type — RO150; DOMI (DF500); RTS4 (RTS400); etc.). Works for me.

I was in the sign business for 9 years. This is outdoor vinyl. It's pliable and has been adhered quite nicely for some time now.  Good thinking though.

To all those who have been PM requests, I'll get right on them. And yes it's nice see at a glance large type for quick identification of box systainer contents. I agree the lil' card labels are not quick glance readable.
Title: Re: Is there an interest for quick ID labels like this?
Post by: Woozal on September 12, 2017, 10:34 AM
It's pretty much hold it where you want it and press all the letters are prespaced in one block area. I'll post a video of how quick and easy it is as soon as I figure out to post a video if possible...heehee

I would be interested. All depends on the price point.
Title: Re: Is there an interest for quick ID labels like this?
Post by: Osweezea on September 13, 2017, 09:59 PM
I would be interested.  But as always of the price is right.  I don't even want to do the math if they are $10 each x 20...30...or more systainers. 

But one idea I would REALLY be interested in is these same labels but sized to fit on the TLOC latch.  Another idea I had would be to make one to fit the latch that would read correctly and say Connected, Open, Locked, Locked.  I know it is not rocket science to figure it out, but it may save some time for those of us who are in and out of them frequently.

Either way, they are a good idea that we have all likely considered in some way shape of form.  And better than the ole sharpie trick!

I would be interested in tool labels. Also if you could make labels for non festlool tools and and accessories
Title: Re: Is there an interest for quick ID labels like this?
Post by: Cheese on September 14, 2017, 11:16 AM
I could become interested in just the tool labels if the price is right. Probably just a single label for the front of the Systainer.  [smile]
Title: Re: If you want custom LARGE FONT Systainer labels...
Post by: Woozal on September 20, 2017, 01:23 AM
I'm thinking $5.00/box would be sufficient...that gets you four sides and something on the top with about as much text as shown in my pics. I think that's fair for my time preparing the custom text and weeding the labels and me paying to mail them to you. You pick the color, size, length and text of each word/label.

But you can order just one label at a time if you want.
Let me know, thanks all.

Post by: Aussie on September 20, 2017, 02:24 AM
I think $5 a box is good value.

I print labels using my computer and stick them on each side like you have done but yours look better. (https://www.dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/eal1yo1gsp86p34/2017-09-20%2016.19.08.png?dl=0)
Title: Re: If you want custom LARGE FONT Systainer labels...
Post by: Cheese on September 20, 2017, 02:33 AM
My suggestion would be for you to offer 2 options, standard and custom. Standard would be either black or Festool green, standard size, standard length and just a simple DF 500 or ETS EC 125 nomenclature to identify the product from a distance on only one Systainer surface.

Custom would be otherwise.

I categorize my tools by latch color which is easily seen from across the room. For instance all 125mm diameter sanders are yellow, routers are white, Domino is black, Vecturo is orange ( [big grin] ).
So I'd only need one label on the front of the Systainer, nothing on the sides or top. I just want to identify the individual tool in the "colored latch" stack.

Post by: Woozal on October 01, 2017, 11:14 PM
How much are the latches? My labels are 50 cents a label so about $1.50 a box and just wondering which way is more economical and more identifying from all side of the systainer.

The color latches are nice but at $10+ each and limited colors it's way cheaper to order your labels(just placed one yesterday).  Any you can see what tool it is from three sides.

Post by: Woozal on October 25, 2017, 11:57 PM
Whew, just got a few large orders for these labels. Evidently they are helping people to navigate through a large set of systainers and not being able to quickly glance and see their labeled contents. I'll post pics soon of a set of Systainers together if you need to see how quickly their contents can be identified.

Great Idea. I happen to own a vinylcutter and also i can never seem to find my systainers in a Hurry.

Looks like a good idea.  I find labels can make locating the tools way easier.  I tried a few versions and ended up putting my label on the latch.  For me, this has been the easiest to pick out the right tool quickly. I would also suggest some color options as they make the process even easier.

Woozal. Thanks Again for getting them done so quickly.

The first batch of 50 labels turned out awesome so I decided to label the remaining 60 Systainers. The little label holders on the systainers are great but when you have stacks of them it’s nice to see where the one you want is from 10 feet away.

I’ve found on the sides there is limited space so I’ve been putting them on an angle. Works out great.   Pics to follow.

@Cheese

Based on the OP picture the green is ~200% and the black ~150% bigger then the FESTOOL (8mm) original label.

Hey guys I’ve ordered twice from him. Last order was for 180. Sometimes he doesn’t respond right away to PM’s. Just be patient. These look really nice and I love to be able to see what’s in each Systainer from across the room.
