What Can a Label Do For Your Business?
Labeling can help your business in a variety of areas such as:
- Comply with Government Regulations
- Elevate your Image
- Improve Efficiencies
Dynamic Systems has helped hundreds of companies design labeling solutions to help improve or safe-guard their businesses. The following are some ideas from real world applications.
PTI Compliance for Fresh Produce
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires traceability of fresh produce from “farm to fork.” The large retail chains (Walmart, Safeway, etc.) have instituted the Produce Traceability Initiative as a way to comply with the FSMA and improve efficiencies in their warehouses.
Dynamic Systems has helped a number of Produce packers and distributors. Solutions include:
- Barcode Label Printer and Bartender Software, Label Design and Labels
- SIMBA Software, which not only produces the PTI label but manages production and inventory
These solutions range from $1,500 to over $15,000.
Medical UDI Compliance
A UDI (Unique Device Identifier) label is required by the FDA for all medical devices. It is considered one of the many new “traceability” labels and has specific format and content. Dynamic Systems has assisted several medical device manufacturers to comply. The solution consists of:
- Barcode Label Printer, Bartender Labeling Software, Label Design, Labels and Ribbon
The cost of the solution depends on volume and can be as inexpensive as $1,400.
Color Coding and Security
There are a variety of ways labels can improve and safeguard your business. Here are a couple of examples:
A marketing company who sells promotional baskets to corporations, uses colored tags and barcode printers to produce a customized gift tag. There are an unlimited number of colors available – including any PMS color. The professional and attractive tag not only looks great, but is easy to produce in bulk.
Zebra’s IQ Color™ allows the user to select various spot colors that show when a specific part of the label is heated. This option makes it easy to use different colors without having to swap labels in and out of the printer. Color coding can be used in the warehouse for efficiency improvements, from colored location labels to color-coded expiration date identifiers.
There are a few choices when selecting a security label, depending on the goal. For example, Void and Destructible Labeling for Asset or Price Labels: If someone tries to remove the label, it self-destructs, making it impossible to reuse.
Security Inks: There are ultra-violet inks that can be preprinted on labels or tags. These inks are invisible to the naked eye, but provide verification when exposed to certain light sources.
