Museum Labels, Archival & Library Labels

Marking special collections and artifacts with museum labels should be handled with extreme care. We provide labels that keep valuables intact while remaining readable and properly affixed. Specialty acid & wood free label materials ensure a proper identification that won’t degrade or alter specimens with time. We’ve worked with various departments, including archaeology, historical, art, botanical, and more.

We’ve provided museum labels to many special collections:

  • Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology
  • International auction houses & movable pieces
  • Books in academic and public libraries
  • Botanical gardens and horticulture societies
