2-Part Plastic Log Tag

3-Part Plastic Log Tag


Cost Efficient, Durable, and Weather Resistant

Plastic log tags are the most popular type of tag we make. These types of tags are typically used when the tag will remain on the log for extended periods of time under all kinds of weather conditions. Keep in mind, if you sell your waste chips to a pulp mill, you will have to remove these tags from the log ends before you saw the log. These plastic materials will contaminate the waste chips and the pulp mills will not accept them.

Overlaminated for Protection

In order to protect the printed image, consecutive barcode and numbers, we apply a clear protective overlaminating film that completely seals the surface of the plastic log tag. So no matter what the weather and conditions...rain, snow, mud, dirt, can rest assured that the integrity of you barcode and numbers are completely protected. If needed, simply wipe off the surface of the log tag to remove any residue and you'll be able to scan the barcode without fail.

How QR Tags are Used in the Log and Lumber Industry

QR (Quick Response) codes are two-dimensional barcodes that can store a large amount of information. In the log and lumber industry, QR codes are often used for tracking and managing inventory, as well as providing important information to customers and suppliers.

Here are some specific ways QR codes are used in the log and lumber industry:

  1. Inventory tracking: Each log or lumber product can be assigned a unique QR code that contains information such as the species of wood, the size and dimensions of the product, and the date it was harvested or processed. This information can be scanned and tracked throughout the supply chain, from the forest to the sawmill to the final customer.
  2. Quality control: QR codes can be used to store information about the quality of each log or lumber product, including moisture content, defects, and other characteristics. This information can be used to ensure that each product meets the required specifications and standards.
  3. Safety and compliance: QR codes can be used to store information about safety and compliance regulations, such as fire safety codes and environmental regulations. This information can be easily accessed by workers and inspectors to ensure that all operations are being conducted safely and legally.
  4. Marketing and customer information: QR codes can be used to provide customers with information about the product they are purchasing, such as the source of the wood, the sustainability practices of the company, and the manufacturing process. This information can help customers make informed purchasing decisions and feel confident in their choice of product.

Overall, QR codes are a useful tool for managing and tracking inventory in the log and lumber industry, as well as providing important information to customers and suppliers.
