Increasing Labeling Efficiency with Roll Labels

June 03, 2015

The majority of businesses that manufacture their own products are always on the lookout for different ways that they can increase efficiency and productivity. Whether it is done by increasing manpower, or adding additional equipment, getting more product out the door will increase profits.

Finding affordable ways to increase efficiency is a common problem for small to medium sized businesses, especially manufacturers that have products that need packaging and labeling. Packaging/labeling by hand is very time consuming, and with large volumes will mean having to pay several people to handle this task.

Roll Labels & Roll Label Applicators

When it comes to labeling hundreds or thousands of bottles and packages, it can eat up a lot of time and manpower. Investing in a roll label applicator and starting to use roll labels to get the job done more efficiently and cost effectively would be the way to go.

This can be confusing at times, especially when placing your first order of blank or printed roll labels for the new automatic labeling machine. When placing your first order of roll labels, there will be certain thing that you will need to know. We have a post where you can learn more about what you need to know when ordering roll labels.

Food & Beverage Industry

One of the industries where having a roll label applicator is necessary is the food and beverage industry. With the amount of products that many food and beverage brands manufacture and ship daily it would not be possible to do so if they had to hand label everything. If that were the case the cost of paying a team to label every package would eat up a hug percentage of their profits.

Even smaller brand such as craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries are taking advantage of roll labels and roll label applicators. This leaves them more time to keep perfecting their craft while also creating new beverages. This also allows for them to make a decent profit and still have plenty to invest in their own new recipes to add to their product line.

General Manufacturing Facilities

In larger manufacturing settings there is no other way to go than roll labels, and the majority of these types of facilities will have multiple roll label applicators. Chances are that they also have more than one type of roll label applicator, which means that their supply/ordering coordinator needs to know the basics about each particular applicator when placing orders for labels to use on them.

Justifying the ROI

If you own or manage a manufacturing facility that is currently applying labels to each and every product by hand you should start looking at roll label applicators. There are many different applicators available with a broad range of prices, so you should have no trouble finding one that is affordable.

Roll labels are also very cost effective, and they also have many other benefits, you can read about some of the benefits of roll labels in another post that we did.  

Once you have the pricing figured out for your first roll label applicator you then need to see how long it would take you to justify that cost with the man hours that you are saving by using it. In most cases it will pay for itself in a short period of time. If it doesn’t not seem like it will save you the time and money now it is worth keeping in mind for when your brand starts to grow.
