which stickers to use

This place was recently gfci outlet protected throughout. I was left with stickers that i was told need to be put on the switch plate. Any particular area to be placed on the plate? the "GFCI protected outlet" or the "No equipment ground" sticker..? I would think the gfci protected outlet one... just want to be sure. One has to have superman super vision to see the micro small lettering these stickers have that come with the gfci's that were put in. Are these stickers NEC ok?
my gosh...lol

Just install the GFCI protected stickers on the top of the protected receptacle cover plates. The "no equipment ground" sticker is used when a 2 wire system is upgraded using GFCI receptacles to protect downline receptacles and using a 3 wire receptacle where there is no grounding wire. And yes, you are required to have them by the NEC.

This is pretty simple. If the receptacle is GFCI protected, then you want a GFCI protected sticker. If there is no ground, then you want a no ground sticker. We don't know if they are grounded or not. Do you? If not, you can get an outlet tester at your home center that will answer that question.
