High-Impact Labels; Low-Impact Cost.
Initially, many start-up businesses and brands have their labels printed by third parties instead of printing in-house with a color label printer. Initially, when the small business is just starting out this makes sense, as there are several advantages:
- Quick start-up
- Professional-looking labels
- No investment in equipment or consumables
However, as label consumption increases, a case can be made to print labels in-house by making a modest equipment investment. Although there is upfront cost of equipment, the savings can lead to quick—and substantial—ROI. These savings are the result of numerous in-house professional label printing advantages:
- Print as many labels as you need, when you need them
- Alter label designs on-the-fly to accommodate ingredient or government regulation changes
- Create “one-off” labels for product testing or seasonal promotions
- Private label your products for your customers
- Respond quickly to your customers’ case or pallet labeling requirements
- Virtually eliminate obsolete labels
- Eliminate pre-printed label inventory
