Moving and storage companies rely on Budnick to manufacture the industry's highest grade inventory ID tags. For over a decade, Budnick has continuously improved sequentially numbered inventory ID tapes. We've introduced the industry to a better and more consistent tape, developed a proprietary printing method to improve print quality, discovered a matte print sealant that protects printing without deadening adhesives, innovated double wall plastic cores and began perforating between inventory tags.
The Biggest Problems Movers Have with Inventory ID Tags
Inventory ID tags fall off boxes, ruining inventory accountability
Manufacturers change adhesive tapes from shipment to shipment
Tapes leave adhesive residue on furniture
Inventory tape pulls the varnish off fine woods which drives up claims
Movers tear through lot and piece numbers ruining inventory control
Long and inconsistent lead times cause overstocks and outages
Print smears or is pulled off by the tape's adhesive so movers can't read lot numbers
Paper cores irritate movers fingers or core dust contaminates adhesive
Inferior slitting methods cause tapes to sliver or become hard to get off the roll
Manufacturers ship repeat lot numbers which negates inventory accountability
Poor and inconsistent packaging damages rolls and messes up lot number
The Budnick Solution
Better Sourcing Leads to Better Tape
Expecting a tape to be applied by dirty fingers, to a dirty box and not fall off, yet adhere to every article in a home or office without damaging it, is certainly a daunting task. To alleviate adhesive issues, we utilized our adhesive tape expertise to find a tape with a moderate tack adhesive that is specifically designed to adhere to feathered paper board and a wide variety of other substrates. We rely solely on one manufacturer that utilizes ISO certified quality systems and has 49 years of tape manufacturing experience. Applying our adhesive tape expertise to inventory tape earned us the reputation for providing ID tags that stay put, but remove cleanly when needed.
We are also aware that many industry suppliers utilize multiple vendors and source foreign raw material components. Because we are aware of the issues you face, we only utilize one source for all of our inventory ID tapes.
Assuring Inventory Accountability
When lot numbers are torn or illegible, you lose accountability of your inventory. This drives up your processing time and claim liability. Worse, your customers lose confidence in your ability to care for their property. At Budnick, we understand that your movers need to work fast. To prevent them from struggling to tear tape or from tearing through lot or piece numbers, we offer perforations between each tag.
Illegible or smeared printing also waste your time and negatively impacts your inventory control. That is why we developed a proprietary printing method and quality check system that ensures you receive the right lot numbers and that each and every tag is legible. We also searched long and hard to find the ideal matte finish print sealant that protects your printing without deadening the tape's adhesive system.
Because paper cores irritate workers fingers and fibers can tear off and contaminate the tape's adhesive, we introduced 1inch inner diameter, double wall, plastic cores to the industry. Operators love the smooth unwind and durability of the plastic core.
At Budnick, our main and only business is adhesive tape converting. Our expertise and the broadest adhesive converting capabilities in our industry allow us to properly slit and rewind inventory ID rolls. Using the proper slitting method ensures your rolls look nice and unwind easily, without tearing as they come off the roll.
Our inventory ID tapes are custom packaged to our customers' specifications. Generally, our rolls are stacked, bagged, kitted and put into large shipping cases. Specialized packaging helps protect rolls during shipment and can make movers more efficient at using inventory tapes.
