Handbell Marking Kits

Ever wondered how to mark your handbells and handchimes without damaging them? We have the solution. All of our bells have been marked with our kits and the labels have stayed in place for over 2 years. The bells are played 3 times per week so there is a lot of moving around of the cases. And having them marked by color makes it easier to determine who’s belong to whom. Our labels peel easy, stick solid and won’t smear. Use them to mark all your items including tools, lights, stands, trees, mallets, percussion equipment and anything else you need to track. Labels are small enough to fit inside the handles of your handbells – only 3/4″ wide.

The labels are a custom made QR code (a two dimensional barcode that is easily scanned using any modern mobile phone and then converted into a piece of text and/or a link) and will include your name (or church/organization name) and up to 2 contact telephone numbers. When the code is scanned, the name and phone number(s) become readable text on your phone and the phone number(s) become active links on an IPhone.

There are several free apps for smartphones that will read QR codes but we recommend RedLaser as it works great with these labels.

Examples of possible QR Code wording (limited to 40 characters and spaces because of size) :

Example 1: Third Bell on the Right 816-xxx-xxxx 
Example 2: Southminster Presby Church 913-xxx-xxxx
Example 3: Thirdbellontheright.com 816-xxx-xxxx
Example 4: Contact SMPC at 913-xxx-xxxx if found

The nail polish will be used as an extra visual for recognizing your handbells if the labels are removed. It is suggested that you purchase one kit per set of bells/handchimes. As an example, our church has 2 sets of bells and 3 sets of chimes. We have three different owners (the church, the director and me) of different bells and chime sets. We each have a different color so that we keep our sets together and complete.

We are offering four sizes of handbell and handchime kits. Each kit will contain the following:

  • QR Coded labels
  • 1 bottle of fingernail polish – for an extra visual identifier in case labels are removed
  • Detailed instructions
  • Plastic case to store kit
