Irony, huh?

I would ask your new customers if they want a label or not. Some players are really conscious about their racquets and a simple thing like this might cause you to lose some business.

I have never had a complaint about a sticker. I have never put one on the hologram either. It actually speeds up the stringing process for me. I try to put the sticker on the butts up side of the racquet throat. When I mount the racquet I can easily see the sticker while stringing. When I am finished I can easily check my last DT number before removing the old sticker. Sure I could open the computer file with this information but I seldom need to.
So you put the sticker on the racquet throat so you know what the set-up is?

If they want the tag they can peel it off the painters tape and put it on there racket or anywhere else they make want to stick it. Painter's tape does not stick well on either side.

If they peel the painter's tape off and trim it up it is real easy to get off the racket too.
I first thing I do about business cards is that I add them to my contacts. I still keep the cards too.

Another thing you could do is to have a log and everything a person signs in, they fill out their contact information and racquet specs.
