What are the advantages and disadvantages of using the Strip Book™ Tagging System (SB_/SSB_)?
These tags come in two different styles to designate different stores or different routes. They are a less expensive alternative to the Dry Cleaning Piece Tag System and come in a booklet form, which makes them easy to organize.
They are easy to use. The control number gets attached to the invoice, alerting the counter person to how many articles of clothing go with that order. The other tags are then attached to the articles of clothing, with any extra tags being thrown out.
The main disadvantage is that they will be more wasted tags, as the tagger is throwing away what they can not use. The other disadvantage is that the Strip Book Tags™ typically allow for tagging up to 5 articles of clothing per order. For orders where more than 5 articles are brought in a whole new strip would need to be used, which may cause more confusion and more wasted tags.
