    Hi guys. I've just wired an office from scratch, my first one. Was wondering if it would pay for me to label each socket as for what circuit it is on or is that going over board? I know if I ask my boss he'll say don't bother because I know what he's like but I would rather make a good job great.

    I would label them myself , but a lot might not, but worse case I would leave a drawing near board possibly laminated with sockets no's etc, also some customers may not want them doing if it is an high spec layout

    Especially in an office I would have said. Will save upset when you turn off half a dozen peoples computers trying to identify that socket you need to change!!

    I would label every socket! Just had to do the job of doing this in an office that has had 20 years of changes and alterations with nothing being labelled!

    Not if you do it with a proper label printer with laminated tape. They stay looking good for years. I use one of the Brother ones with the TZ tape.
