Printing high quality labels is a part of managing supply chain functions such as manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution. But how do you know which label printing and design software is right for you?
1 Select labels first.
At Data Collection Specialties, Inc., we take the guesswork out of label design and printing by helping you determine which barcode system works best for your company. For starters, we'll ask you the following questions specific to labels, which is the first step in the selection process:
- What size labels do you need?
- What are you going to print on the labels?
- How many labels are you going to print?
- Under what conditions will you expose the labels?
2 Identify your barcode printer.
After determining your label requirements, it will be easy to identify the right barcode printer. For example, thermal transfer labels work best for fixed assets that are frequently handled and cleaned. Therefore, you would want to purchase a printer that produces these types of labels. Zebra offers a wide variety of printers for companies in all industries. In fact, Data Collection Specialties, Inc. is a Zebra & Intermec partner, we have extensive training in all Zebra& Intermec printers.
3 Choose label software.
Quality, speed, and reliability are key to label design and printing. Data Collection Specialties, Inc. partners with Seagull Scientific, Loftware, LabelMatrix, andBarTender.
4 Buy a barcode scanner or mobile computer.
As with labels and printers, you must identify your requirements before selecting a barcode scanner device. For example, do you need to scan images from far away? Are you using 2D or linear image barcodes? Or will you scan items stored in a sub-zero freezer?
