Not all your merchandise can be protected with a tag or label.

Hard tags and labels will protect the majority of goods on the shop floor, but not all. Perhaps your merchandising showcases certain items, which need extra protection or perhaps the fabric of a garment is too delicate to bear a tag or the garment too expensive to risk inserting a pin.
Sometimes the manufacturers packaging prevents protection with a standard tag or label.

There are many different options to protect ‘difficult’ items without compromising the security and your profit. Intrepid is constantly resourcing from around the world and working with manufacturers to design and produce specialist tags to ensure that all your stock is protected without intimidating the customer and losing the sale.

Just a small selection of our alternative tags are shown here, so please contact us if you have any specific requirements.

Having worked with Paul from Intrepid for a few months he introduced us to some new style tagging options to our stores and they made an IMMEDIATE difference to our losses, significantly reducing theft.

Do these tags put off customers?


Surely these special tags damage the item if someone tries to remove it?

Many specialist tags are known as ‘benefit denial’ tags. That means that if an item is taken and unauthorised removal of the tag is attempted, the goods will ‘spoil’ therefore removing the benefit of the item taken.

Staff always seem to have problems with these type of tags at the checkout?

Intrepid will help you to train your staff to apply and remove any type of tag.

I don’t like what’s available for bottles that I’ve seen, is there anything else?

We will always source something that works for you.

Can Intrepid recommend tags for specific merchandise? : I want to display live merchandise, not empty boxes.

Yes, and we can even develop and manufacture tags for an item that is impossible to tag with a commercially available solution.
