Choosing the Best Label
It’s not a simple proposition to choose the best label for your application and environment as you would think. We’re experts in the selection and design of barcode labels. Our specialists understand how labels are made, what the variables are and the advantages of different materials. They can help you determine the best solution for your application, no matter how unique an environment you might have or how complex your label design is.
Just a few of the labels we’ve helped specify:
Fish Tags: We supply tags for fresh fish (tuna) and labels for boxed fish.
Cryogenic Labels: Biotech industry requirements include labels that can withstand ultra-cold cryogenics. We provide biotech manufacturers with color-coded labels for this environment.
Lumber Tags: Our tags and labels are in multiple lumber mills and wood manufacturing. The tags range from very large (20” x 4”) tags with a logo, to a unique label (20” x 1.25”) that adheres to the end of plywood billets.
Microdots: The small label measures 3/8” in diameter and is used on very small items or items that have a small area available for labeling. This “dot” is ultra-rugged with high tack adhesive.
Preprinted Barcode Labels: We provide sequentially printed barcode labels for assets, tools, wine barrels and more.
“Destructible” Labels: One of our healthcare customers uses a label that destructs if someone tries to remove it from a wristband.
Ultra-removable Labels: We supply a label that is adhered to newsprint by a printer/applicator and is removed at a later time with no damage to the newsprint.
We also provide many low-cost stock labels and tags. Give us a call with your labeling needs. Chances are we can find you a great solution at a good price.
Barcode Printers are Easier to Use
Thermal barcode printers have been on the market for over 20 years. Each 3-5 years the manufacturers update their products – they’ve improved reliability and speed, added RFID encoding capability, brought the cost of printers down, and introduced specialty printers (such as the HC100 wristband printer from Zebra.)
The latest improvements are focused on the user experience. Printers fit in smaller places, have icon-based configuration panels that step the user through set-up and provide the ability to manage the printers remotely. For example, you can get alerts for ribbon out and other printer issues emailed to your cell phone.
Our representatives can tell you about printers from intermec/Honeywell, Zebra, Sato and Printronix.
