Window Film Suppliers - Remaining feet sticker on roll

I thought that a good idea for all window film suppliers/manufacturers to have a sticker on the film telling you how much feet you have left on your roll.

It would be very helpful to know how much you have left. Like at the remaining 5' mark they could place a sticker on the liner side of the film.

Any input on this??

a sticker on the film would leave "core impression marks"...would be hard to make any real marks on the roll as the 100 foot ones come off of the master rolls and not every foot of the master makes it to us....so the would have to figure out a way to mark it as it was rolled down....

 

for what its worth, I can pretty well tell how many feet, or pretty close, is left on a roll by looking at the end of the roll on the core.

Hmmm is that patented?? ? ? ?  ?

 

Whats wrong with the rest of the mannys that don't do that.

 

Would cost pennies per roll  to have a footage mark on the edge of a roll.

 

MMM has MMMs all over many of their films already . Why not delete a few M's and add footage markers?

It's pretty easy to mark the box end with how many feet are left as a remnant. That way you could see without opening the box. That said, I have been known to use blue tape and write on it with how many LF is left. .. Blue tape, black sharpee and it's good to go.

Cost more to do increments. Bulk roll breakdown would call for an operate to put the brakes on without missing 0 each time. It would have to print at the bulk roll breakdown, which would call for the technology being placed on each of those type machines. Laminating machines are less in number.
