Asset tags are labels or stickers designed to be placed on items of value. Use these tags to identify and keep track of your personal and business property. Applying asset tags to your possessions is a simple, yet highly effective means of preserving your valuables. They serve other purposes, too. Here's the top five reasons to order asset tags.

Equipment Tracking

Businesses commonly use asset tags, in conjunction with a database, to keep track of their tools, equipment, and electronics. This helps you allocate or designate locations for items, as well as keep track of retirement or replacement dates. Asset tags can also help to remind you of upcoming service contracts, expiring lease / maintenance agreements, and more.

Loss Prevention

Expensive business items like laptops, cell phones, audio and video gear, etc. are much more portable than they used to be. Equipment and tools that are clearly marked as company property are less likely to “walk off.” Even if they aren't taken, without asset tags and a tracking database, many items can be misplaced or mistaken for another.

We have materials that will work on your equipment whether it’s indoors or outdoors, or needs flexible labels or super-strong adhesive. You can also select tags that leave residue behind when they’re removed, or that break into pieces easily, for tamper evidence.

Item Recovery

Lost or stolen items marked with asset tags can be easily identified and returned to the rightful owner. We have some great recovery stories that only happened because of our asset tags.

Reports & Records

Most banks require you to show proof of business assets when applying for loans. An accompanying database of your tagged assets provides quick and easy proof of your company’s valuable equipment. In case of loss or accident, you can easily supply your item’s serial number, description, and other information for insurance reimbursement purposes.

We have asset tracker tags specifically made for situation where you want the tag to go on the piece of equipment and a smaller tag with just the number to go on any physical records, for easy cross-reference.

Visual Cues & Brand Awareness

In a time when more and more staff are working from home, asset tags serve to differentiate company-owned assets used at home from employees’ personal assets.

We use two types of labels for this purpose, with the more expensive assets (laptops, docks, monitors, desktops, etc.) being marked with numbered and barcoded asset tags. This aids in inventory and tracking. We tag the less expensive accessories (mice, keyboards, cases, speakers) with a simple “Property of MaverickLabel” sticker.

If your items are out in the public sphere, tagging them with your logo and company name also increases brand awareness.

Configure your tags in a multitude of different ways. We use quality, long-lasting materials like aluminum, anodized metal, metalized polyester, and tamper-resistant stocks. Have a slick or curved surface, or need rugged tags for the outdoors or other harsh environments? We have the material for you.

You can add barcodes, serial numbers, text, and your company logo to our asset tags at no extra charge. With our online design, you can order yours in minutes.
