Topic: Labeling cloth bags.... (7 msgs / 197 lines)
1) From: ConradArms
Good Morning,
 
  When I use the SM cloth bags I do the following:
 
                    1--Cut out the label that has the name of the coffee on 
it that
                       comes on the SM plastic bag. I put that inside the 
cloth bag.
                 If I use more then one cloth bag for the same  coffee, I 
make a copy of the SM
                      label  so that each cotton bag has a SM label inside of 
it.
                   2--I write the name of the coffee on a small 2" x 1/2" 
self sticking  label and fold
                       it in half over the cotton string that closes the bag 
(any  size  label
                       will do).
                   3--I color code my coffee by order date.  So I put a color 
coded  label
                      on the string as well.  
 
I keep my green beans in the my kitchen cupboard, keeping all the color  
coding together.
 
I also store some of my greens in paper lunch bags.  When  doing so, I just 
staple the SM label to the paper bag in addition to  color coding.

     Sounds like a good plan of action.  I have a similar routine.  I
usually empty the plastic bag(s) the coffee is packed in.  I mark the
date of the coffee order on the label using a sharpie fine point pen
and then cut the label from the bag leaving about 1/4 inch border of the
plastic it is attached to.  I then laminate both sides of the label with 2"
clear packaging tape, punch a single hole in the upper left hand corner of
the label using a paper punch and attach it via small chromed wire key ring
to the red draw string of the burlap storage bag.  If the quantity of coffee
requires more than one burlap bag, I make a copy of the label on the
scanner/printer and "doctor" it in the same way, so that each bag in the
stash has a readily visible, dated label securely attached to the bag.
Makes it a little more convenient when you are digging in a a dozen or more
bags to retrieve that ONE variety you want to roast today. Josh

What I have found that works best for me as far as labeling bags is that
I use a sharpie and have a number on my cloth bag.  Then I keep a list on
the wall by all my coffee stuff that lists the number of the bag, what is
in the bag, when it arrived and any other notes I need.  This also makes
it easier for keeping track of resting coffee, as I can just put a number
and a date on any container of roasted coffee on my counter.

David    I LIKE it.  Seems simpler and easier than what I do now.  Thanks
for the idea.

My routine is to cut the label from the ziploc bag (with no overlapping
plastic) and tape it to the cloth bag with Scotch 2" Packaging Tape
(transparent, of course) which fits perfectly (with 1" or so at each end and
maybe 1/4" top and bottom) and holds extremely well, yet comes off cleanly
without leaving sticky residue when I'm ready to reuse the bag.  This has
worked well for over a year now.
