2017/8/8Does In-house Label Printing Make Sense for Your Company?
If your company has a need for large-scale labeling of products, assets or inventory, you may wonder if you should create your labels internally or outsource to a third party. There are some benefits to both, but with recent innovations in barcode label printing technology, it is becoming easier and more affordable than ever to keep this process in-house.
Key benefits of in-house labeling
Perhaps the biggest upside to in-house barcode labeling is that it gives you complete control of the process. You can create custom labels that highlight your unique products, allowing you to set yourself apart in your industry and make stronger connections with your current and potential customers.
You are also able to create as many or as few labels as you want. You won’t have to deal with vendors who decline to do small runs of custom labels.
An in-house label making process also means that you can print as needed. This reduces overhead, as you don’t have old stock collecting dust in a warehouse. There is also much greater flexibility, as you can run small batches for special editions, sample runs or products that are nearing the end of their lifespan. Being able to change a label on the fly when a product is not selling is another key advantage.
In-house printing will also save your business money in the long term. Although there may be an upfront investment, it tends to be much less expensive to print internally than to constantly purchase new labels from an outside vendor. You also won’t have to worry about whether a shipment will show up—you print barcodes when you need to print.
