Abstract

Surface-mounted custom labels for portable elec- tronic devices, e.g., selective call receivers may be used, for example, to record a serial number, to iden- titji a manufacturer or service provider, and for secu- rity purposes, such as theft prevention A problem with surface-mounted custom labels is the amount of housing surface space they require. Today's mini- ature portable devices often contain relatively large displays and many user-control buttons, and thus ofien do not have sufficient unused housing surface space to accommodate a surface-mounted custom label. A second problem with surface-mounted cus- tom labels is that they easily can be removed or altered. This problem can be particularly important in the case of labels used to identify a product for warranty or security purposes.
