A stock label offers several advantages over a custom-made product. Among the major benefits:
- Faster delivery. Stock labels are available next day or even same day. This makes your operation more nimble.
- Smaller order quantity. Whereas custom labels may require you to purchase a month’s or quarter’s worth of material, stock labels can be ordered in quantities as low as 100 – sometimes even less. This reduces your inventory cost.
- No-hassle Returns. Suppose you order the wrong item or it doesn’t work the way you expected it. With a custom label, returns and rejections are problematic and may involve a hefty penalty. With a stock label, returns are easy and typically involve only a small restocking charge, if that.
Stock labels in high demand include:
- Direct thermal labels
- Thermal transfer labels
- Custom labels of all types
