A clever bit of efficiency in stealth tagging is the practice of using markers to write the tag on a blank U.S. Postal Service adhesive label, then sticking the label to target surface/location. Above is a detail-shot of an example we recently spotted on the Uptown “C” Train platform at Spring St. subway station in Soho, in New York City. The tag, which we’re reading as “JANE,” is ordinary but effective.
