How Professionally Printed Labels Are Cost Effective

by Taylor Hughes

When it comes to the labels you put on your products, you can choose between printing them yourself or going with a professional printing company such as Dixie Labels & Systems Inc. While it might seem that you will save money by doing the printing yourself, you might be surprised to find out that you may save money by going with the professionals. Here are just a few reasons why this could be true for your company.


The first thing is going to be the cost of the printer. While any printer is capable of printing labels, you want to be sure it can print high-quality labels that are not going to have the printing wipe off easily. In addition, you want a printer that is going to be able to print a large quantity in a short amount of time and able to print on a variety of materials. The printer that can do everything you need it to do at the quality you want is going to be more expensive than the one you use to print out financial reports. 


When you use different colors on your labels, or perhaps white ink on a dark-colored label, you are going to spend a lot of money. when you do not use this printer and ink on a regular basis you are going to end up with the ink drying out. This means that a portion of the cost you spend on ink is just wasted. You will never have to pay for ink that does not get used when you go with a professional.


If you are not printing labels all the time, or if you use the label printer for other jobs, the employee doing the label printing is going to have to take some time to make sure the parameters are set properly. If there are any changes to be made, this is going to take time, too.There is also bound to be a few jams or other problems with the printing during most of the runs. This is going to take time and will keep the employee from getting other work done. While it might not seem like a lot of time or money, even a little can bring the cost closer to what you would pay a professional.

You want to be able to label your products a soon as they hit the warehouse or come out of production. When you have a professional print them, you can place an order for a large amount or get them done a day or two before they are needed without any hassle on your part.
