We are right in the middle of January, and in many parts of the country temperatures are below freezing. With many companies that have to store products outside, or even in cold freezers, it is important to use labels that can hold up to the cold temps when labeling inventory.
A regular label is not meant to hold up to freezing temperatures, which causes the adhesive to not properly adhere to the surface it is applied to. Having everything labeled properly is important when it comes to inventory because mixed up or missing labels labels can cause all kinds of problems, including giving customers the wrong product.
