Save time by using preprinted custom labels

Posted by Susan Fields

How many different items do you barcode daily? Are you printing your own labels because you need sequential barcodes? If you are using barcoding throughout your operation, you might find that you could actually save time and money by purchasing custom labels instead of printing them yourself.

You can get sequential numbering on labels that are printing exactly to your specifications—size, shape, color, facestock, liner, and barcode symbology—and preprinted with your barcode series. Consider the savings in terms of staff time to program, load, and print the labels, as well as the cost of the printer and supplies. The more labels you produce, the greater your savings by opting for custom labels.

Why should you buy custom barcode labels?

Posted by Susan Fields

Barcoding is not just a convenience, but a necessity. Technology enables us to compress vast amounts of important information into a series of bars and white spaces. With one scan, one can capture any information from product details to the personal information of a hospital patient to the tracking information for a manufactured part. Barcodes are used to track inventory and shipments, control access to secured places, and mark products as tiny as a computer chip or as oddly shaped as a piece of fruit. From protecting your patients to tracking your assets, barcoding is a simple way to keep track of what matters.


When you switch to barcoding, you have your choice of hundreds of labels. “Standard” is a very broad term because you can combine different sizes, shapes, colors, face stock materials, and adhesives to get the label media you need in your choice of rolls or fanfolded stacks. This is great when you want to print your own labels, but when you spend more time creating labels than using them, it might be time to think about getting custom barcode labels.

Customize labels to get what you really need

Posted by Susan Fields

 Barcoding is the smart, easy way to track your valuable assets—like equipment, supplies, documents—and reduce errors by avoiding the human error and the lost time that results from these mistakes. A track and trace system also saves the lost time from staff members hunting for missing products that were put away in the wrong place, entered into the system incorrectly and dealing with wrong shipments—from handling the customer complaint to tracking the package, repacking and shipping the order, and picking up the extra cost.
