Re: Checkpoint Security System John Lucas 06 Feb 1996 21:30 UTC

Hello Barbara:

Although we do not use the Checkpoint system at this library, at my previous
institution we did.  When it came time to reorder stickers. I did the following:
    I ordered some stickers blank as they usually were.  On others, I had a
reduced version of our institution stamp printed on the stickers by
Checkpoint.  There was a one time charge for the creation, and these
stickers then cost a little more.

    For the volumes going through our binder, the blank stickers were sealed
inside the back cover. Our institution stamp was inked over the security
sticker in the back cover and was inked in the inside of the front cover and
both flyleaves.

   For prebound items, we used the printed version of the sticker on the
back cover and inked the other cover and flyleaves as was usual.

    For certain titles, we placed the pre-printed squares inside the front
cover of every issue, AND stuck a blank one somewhere on the inside, trying
to find either a partial blank page at the end of an article OR on an
advertisement.  Our "want-to-be surgeons" might spot the preprinted square
but would miss the blank ones inside the issue.
