    For many years, I've used a printed lable (very hard to remove) on the back of all paper proofs... portraits and weddings.

    I tried to re-order today and found that the lable has been discontinued.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    What about a stamp? I think a lot of photogs even stamp the front with a special photo paper ink.

    Get over it. Thats what keeps people from just taking the proofs, scanning them, screwing the photographer, and comiting a copyright law.

    Most wedding photographers take a big old "PROOF" stamp and stamp the front of them. A nice sticker or stamp for the back stating they are copyrighted is a good idea too. ©©©©©

    UPDATE: The company (Century Marketing) called back with an offer for an alternate lable and said they'd throw in a new dispenser for free. All is well again.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Sure. Actually, I think it's more important that I use these on my finished prints. It makes it really easy for anyone to phone me with a reorder.

    The web page with the labels I use is:

    This is what my label looks like:

    In Photoshop you can water mark your images as well as add a copy right notice on the bottom of the photo.

    Is it better to stamp or add a label, stamping just seems like it would be far less time consuming. I just got an order for 700ish photographs, but I want to make sure that they come back for reprints, I just dont know if I want to spend half a day adding labels :-?

    They labels go faily quickly using the gun applicator (a second or two). The cost is higher, but they're neater, more ledgible, and won't transfer ink when you stack prints.
