Studio Facility Update

    The metal label frames and the labels 

Occasionally, I will do a stock check of the materials and equipment in the studio and at the same time I tidy up and refurbish the studio facilities. I have checked the stock of leathers and cloths this month. Then, I rearranged the storage place for leathers and made a file for onlay’s leathers. I also ordered some cloths and tools. While I ordering these things I found other item on the internet that I thought it useful for the studio facilities.
It is the metal label frame for box. I wanted to use the metal label frame for the studio boxes when I moved to Barnes from Maida Vale. However, I could not find the suitable frame at the time. Since then, I temporarily put the paper label as needed. Substantially it works but aesthetically it is awful.
I have use approximately 60 boxes in my studio. It will takes sometime to put the frame completely. However, it looks already nice to put the metal label frames on the few boxes.
