Digital Label Printing

For many, digital label printing is a costly laborious process when compared to the traditional method of printing, but here at Data Label we do not think that way. We are all for digital printing because it means that we know that brands both large and small can benefit from this technology. For small, or brands which are just emerging, with the help of our creative design teams, they can have an eye appeal and as much presence as the big names. We are not suggesting that digital printing is less expensive than the conventional way, but what it does give is amazing value for money and it allows those with smaller budgets to get a lot more for their money and tooling cost can be lower too.

The label is one of the focal points of a package

A label is more than likely to be the one visible reminder a customer has of you and your product, and this is one of the main reasons why the quality of the label is as important as the data or message that it is carrying. But appearance alone doesn’t define the quality of a label. A label must serve a practical purpose for a specific application, at DataLabel we produce the many custom labels that are used across industry for items such as: product identification, shipment addressing, bar codes, work-in-process, inventory control, pricing, promotional, and many other purposes.

A new label to save consumers money

A novel and new way to use a label is to be introduced by The Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and John Lewis, who will introduce a product-labeling trial next year that shows the lifetime running costs of household appliances, so simple you wonder why this label has not been in use before now. Earlier trials in Norway have shown that when consumers see the running costs as well as the initial cost of a product they are more likely to buy energy efficient models and now John Lewis is to begin using a label on goods such as washing machines, washer dryers and tumble dryers.

Seven reasons to use asset labels

Asset labelling has become quite common in many work premises as business owners make attempts to label all the items they own. But what are the advantages of asset labels and what is making them so popular?

The advantages of asset labels include:

New Android app uses QR codes

An Android app has just been released by VisitEngland, which features a built-in QR code reader function.
The company’s popular Enjoy England app, which was previously only available to iPhone users, has seen an upgrade which includes over one thousand suggestions for destinations to visit as well as a Google Maps location result with every search.

The increasing popularity of smartphone barcode label scanners

We are all familiar with the linear barcode labels found on most products we buy, but Quick Response barcode labels are starting to appear more frequently.

Whereas the linear barcode is considered to be a one dimensional way of representing information, the QR code is 2D, allowing more information to be represented within the same area.

First designed for the car industry, its popularity soon spread to other industries. The QR code allows a greater amount of data to be read more quickly.

Use asset labels to simplify the auditing process

Performing routine inventory checks is crucial for retail stores and in warehouses. It involves counting each and every asset within the warehouse or retail store. Inventory checks are mostly performed outside the working hours of business. Managing stock levels is an important part of the retail world.

Doing regular stock checks, organisations can ensure that their business is profitable and efficient. Audits and inventory checks allow organisations to know how many inventory items are available, sold and missing. It also helps organisations to ensure that they do not advertise about goods that are no longer available.
