2 Small Labels - 1.6" x .25"
In bright yellow lettering, each label shouts REWARD FOR RETURN with a toll-free phone number and a website URL to contact. The identifying serial number says "OWNER" followed by a combination of seven letters and numbers. Unfortunately, StuffBak uses the number 0, which can easily be confused with the letter O. On the smaller labels this is especially irksome.
Once you’ve labeled your gadget, you head over to http://www.stuffbak.com to register. This process is delightfully simple. On the home page is a big banner urging you to ‘Click here to activate’. Following that link, you are prompted for your Owner number. If you type an ‘O’ for a zero, you are told that StuffBak does not use the letter ‘O’. Nor do they use B, D, I or S. At least this helps with the letter/number confusion.
Then you follow the steps to identify your item by category, sub-category, make, model, serial number, and description. “Small electronic devices” is the obvious choice for Treo owners. The other pull-down options include “Children’s items and Pets.” I assume that you put the round StuffBak label on pet’s name tag, not its fur or tail feathers.
Then choose the sub-category such as cat, dog, ferret, rabbit, or reptile. Treo owners would choose the sub-category “PDA” with “Palm” as the make. Next, enter the model, serial number and a short description. You can also register items with StuffBak via a convenient 800 number, without visiting the website. Everyone I’ve spoken to at customer service has been friendly and clear.
Two more steps are required to complete registration. First, you can opt to offer a cash reward. Just how much are you willing to pop to get that valuable back? Secondly, you might need to complete a short survey. First time users will have to create a user account with the usual contact information.
Once registered, when you return to the site, just enter your user name and password. You'd return to change contact information if you moved, to add other stickers or items, or update the status of lost or not-lost goods. You can report whether an item is lost or has been returned. The StuffBak website keeps a comprehensive and clear log of your registered items.
