Product Stickers and Respect
Jason Fried over at Signal vs. Noise made an excellent point yesterday about respecting products you make and the customers who buy them.
For instance, those pesky information stickers that come on just about everything, including INSIDE of a tea-kettle I bought recently.
• Are they easy to remove?
• Do they leave a sticky residue when removed?
Here is this great product I purchased and the manufacturer insists on sticking something on that completely mars the surface.
When these stickers are included, I can discern that the manufacturer probably has not tried to remove one of these stickers from their product themselves. They stick it and forget it.
This tells me that they don’t care about the product, or me.
