Labelling Solutions: Labelling systems fail for a variety of reasons. While labelling errors are infrequent, they can have disastrous repercussions. Therefore, it is important to have labelling solutions to any identified risk to aid the business in operating efficiently.
Ensure that you are up to date on all fronts.
Updating your operating system, hardware, and software ensures that your business continues to run smoothly. A piece of advice that goes along with this Best Practice is that updating one part of your solution, such as the operating system, hardware, or software, has an impact on the overall technical solution. Using labelling software designed for Windows 10 on a machine running Windows XP may not work as well (or at all). Keep your printers up to date and maintained in terms of labels to ensure that your labels are of the highest quality possible.
Features of Machines to Compare
There are about six things you should look out for when comparing and choosing machines:
- Roll capability
- Product dimensions
- Label dimensions
- Standard features
Shipping costs and equipment upkeep are further factors to consider. It’s easier to make a buying decision if you know what you need in terms of production and labelling, so you can choose which machine type, functionality, and speed you want.
Having only one printer exposes you to danger. When it breaks, you have to cease printing labels. With a spare printer, you can eliminate that danger.
The advantage of having spare printers is that they are not useless. Having many printers allows you to distribute workload across your fleet, decreasing wear and tear at a single location.
You eliminate that risk if you can print labels with a different printer if your first printer is dropped and damaged.
