Each have their own benefits and offer great solutions for various labelling requirements, and having high quality labels is essential to a products success.
Whether you are looking to replace your existing label equipment, or considering investing in your first labelling machine, it is likely you will have some questions and concerns. As specialists in labelling machinery, we often hear clients come to us with misconceptions on the equipment. Today, we’re busting the top three label machine myths!
Labelling Machines Are Expensive
This is a common concern for businesses who are investing in their first ever labelling machine for their product. There comes a time when hand labelling is no longer an efficient solution, and automated labelling is an effective alternative. The upfront cost of a labelling machine can be overwhelming, and it is easy to be put off by the initial investment required. However, labelling machines quickly pay for themselves and start generating a return. After the initial outlay of the machine, the running costs are minimal, and your business will save a huge amount of time and resource over hand labelling. If you aren’t sure if switching from manual labelling to a labelling machine is right for you, check out our guide on the top signs you’re ready to stop labelling by hand.

Labelling Machines Require Regular Repairs
Like any equipment, labelling machines can be subject to issues. We often hear concerns over the level of repairs, spare parts, and additional costs that will be required with a labelling machine. In actual fact, labelling machines are very reliable pieces of kit as long as they are properly used and cared for. Have your labelling machine serviced regularly and ensure it is being operated in the right way and you are unlikely to experience down time.
