Looking to create a more organised garage or storage area?

Save yourself time and energy while also protecting your tools and items by following these two easy and fast coding suggestions for your garage storage.

CODE USING LABELS1H-059 Fischer Plastics Label Holders
Labels are an efficient and highly practical way of coding your garage storage. Tags give you the ability to show what is being stored explicitly in each area.

One great feature of labels is that you can create your personalised labels. That means you can create the description labels in a way that best describe your particular unique material.

By labeling your storage you won't need to go through multiple containers are areas looking for parts. This is especially important in areas such as garages where you store small items such as nails, screws, bolts and tool parts.

There are multiple types of labels that you can try for your storage needs. We suggest using sticker labels, cardboard labels or business cards to identify the contents of your storage bins. The labels are rectangular and are great for illustrating what is in your storage box and especially perfect for labeling small parts.


Colour is a natural visual cue to help you remember where things are.Untitled design-1
By colour coding your garage storage area you can:

  • Ensure that your tools and spare parts storage is continually kept organised.


Sorting everything can be difficult, however by colour coding your storage and garage storage bins, you can easily understand and see where things should good.
