Here is what you need to get started:
JROTC Uniform Inventory Database Software
The JROTC Uniform Inventory Database is a MS Access database which runs only in Windows.
The database cost is a one-time fee - no recurring charges. It can be installed on a single PC or Local Area Network.
Custom Printed Iron-on Tags and labels with Barcodes
We will print your school name / logo and program name. We can start the numbers at any number. You will receive a screen print sample before we print.
If you want to preview the tags before ordering - we will be happy to send you free samples.
We have multiple sizes of Iron-on Tags and Adhesive Labels for shoes, boots and equipment.
1.5" x 1" Iron-on Tag
1.25" x 0.5" Industrial Label for Shoes/Boots
Dritz Petite Press
The Dritz Petite Press is an easy to use mini iron that we recommend for applying Iron-on Tags. It gets very hot and is small enough to fit inside garments. Iron-on tags need a very hot iron to melt the adhesive so the tags will stay on through multiple washings and dry cleanings.
Mini Ironing Pad
The Mini-Ironing Pad is optional but a great way to protect your desk tops while you apply the Iron-on tags.
A barcode scanner comes in very handy to look up Uniforms, Check-out Uniforms and Check them back in.
We offer two types of Barcode scanners - Wired and Wireless. Most schools prefer the Wireless version. Here is a link to more information on how to choose.
The Uniform Inventory Database Package includes all of these items plus ...
A large Zippered Bag to hold everything when not in use
A Quick Guide to the Uniform Inventory Database (How to add uniform records, How to check-out uniforms, etc.
A Resource Guide on how to Apply Tags
Uniform Inventory Database Package $495
When you are ready to start you can:
Set up stations for each step - Tagging, Photos, Data Entry
Move the uniforms from storage to each station
If you don't have photos of the uniforms you can download photos from the uniform supplier. Having photos for each uniform helps if a cadet doesn't return something and you want to show them the item or print off a checkout receipt with photos.
