The retail industry and lost £billions

If there was one area of business which could claim to be the king of lost £billions, it has to be the retail industry, supermarkets, clothing, electrical, it is not confined to a single sector. Shoplifting is an area which retailers have struggled with since people set up stalls to sell merchandise. Many ways have been tried to combat this theft, some quite effective, others not so. However, one which many retailers swear by is the security tags which have sensors that trigger an alert when someone tries to remove the item from a store without paying.

Some uses for our vinyl stickers

Our vinyl stickers have been use on a multitude of items, for example we have supplied them for wine bottles and as security labels, increasingly they are seen on pharmaceutical products, many items of food packaging including freezer packs where they have to endure extremely low temperatures of minus 20 centigrade.

Utilising barcodes on asset labels

Assets are by and large numbered in most commercial or industrial premises in order that the company can keep a track of the asset. However, there are a few other methods which can be used instead of numbering to increase business efficiency when stocktaking and equipment tracking.

The traditional and at the time the best way of keeping a record of the items that your business owned, was to number all of these and keep an asset register so that each asset could be tracked. However, with advances in technology this simple numbering process has now moved into the 21st century.

Your options for custom labels

Usually we can meet the needs of a business wanting a label from our huge range of standard sizes and shapes. From our stock labels we can offer many different types of barcode labels and asset tags available, in a range of different materials, sizes and styles. These can be hard wearing or durable, an asset label can be made to expose attempts to tamper with it. Practically this means that in most cases we can usually find something to suit their needs.

About Vinyl Stickers and some of their uses

Vinyl stickers are being used increasingly in both the retail sector as well as the pharmaceutical industry, a sector that is now very reliant on them. Just looking along a supermarket shelf or in a pharmacy and you will see just how they have come to rely upon them to describe the contents or to communicate other information such as instruction for use of the product and these are fitted to the package or jar.

When producing vinyl labels we provide high-quality print using HP Indigo equipment, these can be in full colour and pantone, varnished or laminated to protect the print, the adhesive we use can be of the peelable variety, permanent and hi-tack acrylic.

How to manage stock and inventory using barcode labels

Keeping of inventory and stock is vital to any well run business and mangers understand the importance of keeping track of all the items you have. Manually taking stock is time consuming and in a large organisation, or one where the business operates from a number of sites, days can be spent carrying out the task.

A wide choice of material for your asset label

Most business today recognises the value of asset labels attached to their equipment the tiny label fastened to the back of a laptop or other piece of valuable equipment helps to keep assets safe and secure. However, we are often asked which kind of material the asset label or tag should be made from and we are always happy to guide buyers through the process.

A simple and effective marketing tool

The size of the company is not relevant and to some degree the type of organisation either, marketing is the one tool that is vital to any operation. With competitiveness at its peak every organisation needs to devise new ways of attracting attention. Even if the brand is well established and a household name, they need to constantly market and promote themselves to keep up with others in the industry.

Time To Reflect?

The festive season is now behind us and for many the sales period is in full swing, some may be hoping that the traditional January sales will bring some relief, if the Christmas period was disappointing. So for many businesses, this may be a good time to reflect and consider if there could be way in which the business may have benefited by using some different technology, or looking at way to sort out problems that could have occurred at the point of sale.
