5 Tips For Efficient Label Printing

No matter the size, industry or location of your business, saving money and working efficiently should be a priority. Essential items such as product labels might seem like small expenditures when you look at the big picture, but they can add up over time. From your labelling machines to your label designs, there are plenty of minor changes you can make to save some pennies. Here are our top five tips for efficient label printing;

  • Carefully Plan Your Label Size

The dimensions you choose for your labels have a huge impact on their overall cost. There is a delicate balance to getting your label size perfect for your products, but it can pay off. Labels don’t need to be too big or cover your entire product in order to be effective. On the other hand, your labels need to be big enough to be clearly legible and provide all the relevant information for your product. Scaling down your label size just a bit can lead to significant cost savings.

  • Choose The Right Labelling Machine

The type of labelling machinery you use will affect your label printing efficiency. The right labelling machine for your business will depend on the quantity, type and size of the labels you need to print. A company that only requires a small number of labels a day would be best investing in a Desk Top Printer or Label Dispenser. In contrast, businesses with vast printing requirements can benefit from having a Fully Automatic Labeller on site.

  • Consider Your Colour Choices

The choice of colours in your labels can be costly. The more colours you have within your label design, the more expensive they might be to print. It can be tempting to choose designs which are very colourful and eye-catching, but you must consider if it is worth the extra money. Depending on your type of products, black and white labels could be just as effective while being much more efficient.

  • Use A Contract Labelling Service

For some businesses, it makes sense to let a contract labelling service take care of your label requirements. With advanced labelling systems already on hand, professional labellers have everything ready to quickly and efficiently label products of all shapes and sizes. 

  • Understand Your Labelling Machinery

We’ve already discussed the importance of having the right labelling machines in your business, but it is crucial that you understand them as well. Having advanced labelling systems but not using them effectively can be costly. Make sure you know how to properly align your labels and set the correct printer settings. These little changes can end up saving you a lot of money in the long run, especially if you avoid errors and reprinting costs.
