Stick It to the Competition with Better Labels

Stick It to the Competition with Better Labels

Labels… their purpose dictates the qualities you need from them. Maybe they need to be durable and functional. Maybe they need to be aesthetically appealing. Maybe both! Regardless of what you need them for, your labels and label supplier should be selected carefully. Their impact on customers can be greater than you realize, and you can uncover logistic and cost-saving advantages if you know what to look for. If you are in a highly competitive, mostly commoditized industry, attention to the “little details” like the labels you use can make you stand out.

Tips for Your Labels

Most companies don’t have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to labels, so here are some tips:

  • Print Now, Pay Later — Do you order the same label several times a year? Look for a supplier that can produce and warehouse large volumes at a lower unit price and only bill you when you pull from inventory.
  • Look for a Source with an Online Inventory/Ordering Site —If you have several different SKUs, maximize efficiency with a virtual warehouse. Get instant details with item pictures, specs, inventory levels, order/reorder capabilities and reporting.
  • Ask About Free Dies — Label buyers are sometimes held hostage because of their “investment” in custom dies. A source that has the ability to die cut inline will eliminate the need for expensive custom dies on short runs.
  • Maximize Impact with Graphic Design — Certain labels should be visually appealing. If design isn’t your thing, utilize a design team to modernize your existing labels or create new concepts. For maximum savings, look for a company that offers both label printing and graphic design.
