Use labels of an appropriate size.  Prestamp them, or have them preperintd by
computer.  Use permanent labels and they'll really stick, and they can have the same
or even more information.

At a previous place of employment, we created a property label template in
MS Word which automatically inserted the current date.  Everytime the
template was accessed, it contained the current date.  When all the issues
had been checked in, sheets of dated property labels were printed and
affixed to the cover of each issue.  This proved very successful.  Issues
were shelved alphabetically by title so there was no need to put call
numbers on issues.  I wish that were an option where I currently work.

I have had a problem with the new ink that we got this summer.  It is thicker and
goes on gooey.  I only use it on newspapers.  The other pads I use are old (Carters
by Dennison) and we don't ink them.  They work fine on the inner page--no smudge or
imprint on the facing page. I put an imprint on the cover only for 'looks' and try
to use part of the label.
