There are all kinds of variable data you can put on a product label, including lot numbers, expiration or a born on date, alias names, and other product-specific or marketing information that can be helpful to both your staff and customers. Pre-printed labels from an outside printer, however, make it impossible to change this information based on your customer’s requirements. That means you have to order more rolls of pre-printed labels, leading to more expense and waste.
Not only will on-demand label printing allow you to add more information, it will also enable you to make adjustments on the fly. So, if some variations of the same product need different information, you can customize the label instantly rather than waiting for the printer to deliver a new batch. In the end, on-demand printing gives you so many more options in terms of what kinds of data you can put on your labels, and will make your operations run much more smoothly as a result.
