Instantly adapt to government regulations
Give yourself the flexibility to make changes on the fly. One of the big challenges with labeling cannabis products is the constant changes to packaging requirements. Whether it’s new symbols, text requirements, or restrictions, you need to stay up-to-date and compliant at all times. Having an in-house printer gives you the adaptability and flexibility you need in order to stay on top of the demands of your business without worrying about regulations changes.
The ability to change label contents when symbols or design restrictions change is incredibly important. Having a printer on site allows your business to continue production without having to slow or stop for regulation-related delays.
Avoid costly production delays and hidden expenses
Outsourcing label orders can be expensive and take weeks to produce and deliver, leaving you with less ability to make changes and stay on top of pre-printed label inventories. Outsourced labels also often come with rush fees, MOQs (minimum order quantity), and other unforeseen costs.
Purchasing the labels is one thing, but you may also have to take into consideration the effects of production delays, and how that will impact your business with clients. These are the expenses that can go far beyond just the cost of the label.
Simplify label inventories
Managing your business’ blank label inventory can become easier to maintain and organize with an in-house label printer. When you’re only printing what you need—versus what you’re required to order through a third party to hit price breaks or minimum order quantities—it saves you money and time.
Stand out from the crowd
When you own your label printer, you have full control over the design and feel of your brand. In a competitive and evolving industry like cannabis, packaging plays a major role. Easily create design iterations for focus groups or internal discussion, so your product is always looking current and appealing.
