    I have a query concerning the labeling of artifacts.  Has anyone
    considered using laser printed numbers on acid free avery
    labels? These labels could then be afixed to the artifact and
    possibly sealed with clear coat.  I have heard of this process
    being used but I have not heard what the durability of this
    process is.  Does anyone have any opinions concerning this type
    of artifact labeling? How do the conservationists feel about
    this method?
