Preparing yourself for an post-apocalyptic world

We’ve created an infographic on how food supplies and identification labels hold up over time, all in the name of surviving the apocalypse.

Surrounded by flesh eating zombies, or an end of the world catastrophe, what would you do to prepare yourself? How long would you be able to last on the food supplies available?

Do you have the information you need in order to cope and survive? Will food supplies hold up over time? Could you gain information from the important labelling sell by dates?

Bloggers speak out about working in retail

A couple of months ago, we decided to run a survey to find out what people thought of tamper proof labels – they’re one of the most necessary items that we sell to businesses, being absolutely crucial in certain industries, from official departments in healthcare, government and defence to everyday jobs such as confidential office work and education. We’d heard the stories and read the complaints though of some end users, particularly in retail, that tamper proof labels can be a nuisance, leaving sticky residue on items they’ve bought or being near impossible to remove. And so, we ran our survey.
We asked 529 people whether they found tamper proof labels to be a nuisance or a necessity, and found that nearly half of these found them to be annoying. Our evidence went out as a press release that was published at Fresh Plaza among others, and we had the opportunity to hear back from lots of influencers about their thoughts on using tamper proof labels in retail. We know from an industry perspective how crucial our tamper proof labels can be to those using them to deter theft on everything from high value items to smaller goods in high street retail stores, but it really helped to reinforce our message hearing from people who work or have worked in these environments on a daily basis and understand just how necessary they are, from big businesses to small.
We’ve gathered some of the stories that bloggers and influencers shared with us together to show just how important they are for those working in the industry and other issues that those working in customer facing jobs deal with on a daily basis – maybe it’ll make consumers think twice when purchasing something with a tamper proof label attached or when making a complaint!

Online Scams and How To Avoid Them

Can we claim that 2015 has been the year of online hacks scams? Yes, scams have been around for years – did you know that the “Nigerian Email Scam” has been around since the French Revolution? Even before the age of computers, emails and the internet even existed, innocent people were being cheated out of their money in malicious ways.

Security labels and some of their uses

With business wanting to ensure that their equipment is protected at all times, security labels are now being used more frequently to ensure that these are not stolen or tampered with. Two of the ones most frequently used are Void labels and Tamper Evident seals.

With the void label, these are designed to leave the word VOID on the product if the label is tampered with or an attempt is made to remove it from the equipment. This clearly indicates that the equipment has been tampered with, or it has been mistreated in some way.

By using custom labels you can create a unique marketing tool

With fierce competition it is hardly surprising that companies are running out of ideas to promote their organisation creatively, the usual ones are widely used and lose the power of being unique. Printed custom labels are one of the more innovative techniques that one can employ to enhance a brand image, they can also improve business appeal and create more customised products.

There is more to a barcode than a series of lines

The barcode has a multitude of uses, for example they can be in the retail sector for pricing, also document tracking, the tracking of goods or equipment, inventory control, and asset management. There are a number of stages that will go into the production of barcode labels, all of which ensures the high calibre of the product.

Asset labels that will withstand the toughest conditions

For any company which owns modern high-tech electrical equipment and valuable machinery keeping them tagged is vital but the tags or labels have to also be able to withstand the harshest of conditions. Tagging your assets allows you to track them constantly as well ensuring they are a deterrent to thieves.

With asset label it is no longer necessary to keep huge files of all the equipment owned by the company you can simply have all the information labelled with a barcode. Whenever required, the information can be scanned via a bar-code scanner.
