Labels: The Unsung Hero
Time to Start Imagining Your Future Solution
If you haven’t already noticed, labeling has come a LONG way since barcoding became common over thirty years ago. The technology that is now being applied at every level – labels, printers, ribbons, scanners, software, etc. – means that there are possibilities that most of us would not typically imagine. It’s a bit like the modern software industry – if you can imagine it, there is probably a way that someone could do it.
To stoke your imagination a bit more, we’ve created a White Paper called “The Beginner’s Guide to Enterprise Labeling.”
While barcode printing supplies may seem like a simple part of your business, using the wrong ones can have far-reaching implications. What starts as a relatively small issue can quickly escalate into larger problems, and unscannable labels can result in chargebacks, costly fines, and increased expenses. Let’s take a look at how using the wrong barcode printing supplies can hurt your business.
Is your business already generating barcodes? Are you using a standard office printer to print barcodes on sheets of labels? While this may serve your needs in the short term, if you plan to grow your business and sell or distribute to anyone outside your organization, a standard office printer or laser printer is typically not a cost effective solution.
Here at Peak-Ryzex, we love the story of how adhesive has evolved and want to share an infographic about the history of adhesive from horse glue to Elmer’s to nano-tech.
How do you know you have the right label? There are thousands of types of labels, though all are not created equally. Each label is designed for a specific use and with materials for specific conditions. Labels may also be chosen for brand consistency, operational efficiency or compliance with specific industry and government standards.
