Call us if you still have No Christmas lights on same breaker or in close proximity of towers! Yes, that Christmas tree looks great in the front window, especially with the new tree dazzler lights, but be sure it is at least 3 to 4 ft away from your towers and not on the same breaker as it will cause false alarms. any issues this Christmas season.

Holiday Sneaky Security Plans
Get sneeky to catch those holiday thieves this year. Double tagging is an industry standard for high priced items and hot new items. Consider putting an ink tag as the pin into your hard tag as double security. If the shoplifter tampers with the hard tag the ink tag will burst ruining the item they were after. Mind you this may only happen once or twice as the thief gets caught with ink in his hands.
Another double tagging idea is to use hard tags and paper labels. Hide the paper label up inside the garment or in the pocket of a jean. If the shoplifter can defeat the hard tag, he will still ring your system with the paper label as he walks out. Sneaky sneaky …. see the below specials to help you tag those expensive and hard to get hot items.
Ways to tell if you have a bad label on your roll.
Red Dot Marks The Spot
Some of our label manufacturers mark their bad labels with a red dot on the barcoded area. Do not use these red dot marked labels as they are out of frequency and not counted in your order of 2000 labels.
Black Lines on Blank Labels
|Many manufacturers mark their blank labels with a black line down the middle of the blank security labels to indicate they are out of frequency and should not be used. You are guaranteed 2000 good labels so sometimes the label rolls look smaller depending upon how many bad labels are on the roll.|
Missing Labels is OK too
Newer label machines will actually peel off the bad label so if you see missing labels that is ok too.
