Benchmark Request: Paper Travelers

At Columbia Machine, we are looking for a better solution for paper travelers on parts routed outside.  Our process currently includes recording/barcoding specific information for operations that is printed onto white 8.5” x 11” paper, stapled to prints,  tucked into a plastic zip lock bag with a grommet on it, and attached to the weldment or frame or part with a tie twist lock.  As you can guess,  weather, in the form of sun, wind and rain can play havoc with packets rendering them virtually impossible to read or even stay on the frame work in the yard.  Does anyone have an improved solution for paperwork traveling with parts outside to not only stay with the parts but to stay legible and intact?

To respond to this benchmark request, please add a comment to this post or contact Mark Stanley at
