Labeling mailroom mailboxes can be a tedious but necessary job. A mail mix-up caused from out-of-date or missing labels can slow down daily work routines and cause mail to be lost altogether. Choosing a secure system to hold the labels can put an end to mailroom confusion and help the person sorting daily bags of mail from making mistakes. Printed labels secured in a well-designed label holder can replace peeling, yellowing mailbox labels.

Locate a label-holding system through an office supply catalog, online search or a visit to an office-supply store. Look for a product that allows for easy label changes. Match the holder sizes to the dimensions gathered in the previous step. The number of holders and their height and width will vary by brand.
