Here at Lightning Labels we certainly don't deal with famous people very often. But a couple of weeks ago we received a phone call from the assistant of Lee Iacocca, one of this country's leading business legends of the past 50 years. Mr. Iacocca was in need of some bookplate labels for his recently published book, Where Have All The Leaders Gone? Now, I must confess I didn't even know what a bookplate label was (here is Wikipedia's definition), but I have since learned that it is a label that is typically affixed on the inside front cover of a book. Historically, it was used to identify the owner of the book, but today authors use these labels to provide autographed copies of books. Rather than signing books on location, the author signs these bookplate labels and the labels are sent to be attached to the books. It is more convenient, and frankly, I think it is more elegant and professional. One important point to remember when ordering bookplate labels. The labels must have an imprintable surface. So these labels for Mr. Iacocca were done with our matte laminate. It not only provides a more elegant look, it readily accepts a ballpoint pen or marker.
