Labels have been around for a very long time, it is believed that they were first used about 400 years ago and then of course the label would have been written by hand, or images cut into wood and the image pressed into the paper, using a press of some description. Gradually though the years and as a result of the industrial revolution, cylinder style printing was developed.
The QR code can be a great advantage to your company and to work for you it needs to be displayed prominently on the product. We have seen that the QR code can be printed in a variety of shapes, colour and sizes, have a picture embedded into and it is there always on display when your product is used.
More often than not we can supply a label which will fit your exact requirements from our huge stock of standard sizes. Over the 25 years that we have been supplying customers with labels we have amassed a huge stock of cutters, in fact we have 5,000 of these and you can choose from; including rectangular, square, circular and oval.
Asset tags come in many options these can be extremely durable for industrial use, others which do not have to stand up to such extreme conditions can instead feature a barcode or a brand name promoting the company.
For your business it’s important that you secure your assets and the best way to do this is by having a database containing all the relevant information, this will ensure that you are able to improve business efficiency and also ensure that the value of assets is safely recorded.
Barcodes have been with us for nearly forty years and are a very familiar sight wherever we look; the QR code is relatively new with us for less than half that time, coming into prominence with the rise of the smartphone.
The QR code or quick response code can carry far more information than the barcode being two dimensional, this allows QR codes to carry much more information in a smaller space; the conventional barcode would require ten times as much space to hold this amount of information.
The reverse peelable label is a great idea if you want to include more information about your product, but the space on it may be limited. The reverse printed label is ideal for products which may be food for example and you want to include cooking instructions, these are revealed when the label is peeled off and print read from the underside.
The barcode is a clever device and it is able to contain far more information than just the price of a product when scanned at a cash register. One of the major uses of a barcode is to identify, track, and enable stock records amongst many other uses. Identifying items easily is the main purpose of using barcode labels.
Data Label here in the UK has been supply labels for customers or over 25 years and the one thing that we came to realise some while ago, is that a company can only be successful if the customer is satisfied with the product, price and service.
When the barcode first appeared on products, you would have none, or little choice about the way that it looked, it was a series of lines. It still is in many ways, but today you can customise your barcode label in a way that would have been considered not possible previously in case it did not read.
Labels are everywhere that you look, they can be seen on food items, clothing, parcels we receive, they importantly identify a product or relay information of some description. This is when a custom label becomes an important part of your company’s image, the size, shape colour, logo printing, all vital elements on a label.
