    Say you're stringing a POG and the throat stabilizer bar doesn't allow you to place the string info sticker inside the throat, anywhere else logical to place it without the sticker getting ripped to shreds?

    i've put it on the bar and if there is more tape it ends up on the throat. That is if I'm using the sticker that comes with certain string packs.

    I also have a p-touch label maker and can run the font very small keep the label short

    Is there a butt cap trap door? You could also cut a label in half and put it inside the frame next to the grommets like you do lead tape.

    OP, know what you mean, sometimes there is no good Inside spot,,
    Ive placed them on the outside of the frame before, with scotch tape to protect against sweaty hands,,

    I need to update my log book...maybe just go digital. However there is something nice about a nice ledger and a pencil/pen in hand.

    I do keep an electronic log like you guys, just the traditional player in me wants to put a sticker on the racquet. LOL

    The key to a label is adding a re-stringing date. The club ladies will pay attention and bring their racquets back more than once a year.

    sticker is often a talking piece for some players and helps get you another client.
