Tech Tip Tuesday: Labels!

Posted March 13, 2018

labels-1labels

How do you know what type of labels you will need?

There are a few things you want to check before you purchase labels.

  1. What type of printer are you using? Direct or Thermal Transfer? (Direct Thermal- heat transfer and Thermal Transfer is will require ribbons to transfer ink onto labels)
    Or if you have not chosen your printer yet, figure out how long do you need your labels to last and choose between direct or thermal transfer.
  2. Look at the maximum print width that your printer will print, have a plan on what size you want your labels to be. (For example: 3×1 will be 3inches across and 1 inch tall) Normally, sizes for shipping labels will be 4×6 and shelf labels will be 2×1 or 3×1.
  3. Print Material– The main type of print material revolves around three and it’s mostly paper, polypropylene, or polyester.
    Paper- $, used mostly indoor and max lifetime is 5-7 months
    Polypropylene(paper and plastic texture)- $$, can be used indoor and outdoor and max life time is 2 years
    Polyester(plastic texture)- $$$, used indoor or outdoor, gloss on label, scratch/smear, and water resistant and max life time is 3 years
  4. Below are the sizes of the label cores that you have to confirm before purchase, just to make sure it will fit inside your printer. (Often times this is the step that most people overlook and realize that the roll won’t fit when it arrives. So keeping note now will prevent any mis-order in the future)
    Desktop Printers: (core in diameter)
    Inner Core: 1 inch              Outer Core: 5 inches
    Industrial Printers:
    Inner Core: 3 inches          Outer Core: 8 inches
    Mobile Printers:
    Varies

Take a look at some of the labels that we have available for desktop, industrial, and mobile printers. If you are still unsure about the type of labels you need, feel free to contact one of our dedicated account managers and they can help you find the type of labels you need.


Tech Tip Tuesday: What Do I Need To Print Out My Barcodes?

Posted March 6, 2018

Following up on the last tech tip Tuesday, now that you have figured out how to get your own barcodes it is time to print them out. So what do you need to print out the barcodes?

Barcodes.
First, you have to design and create the barcodes in a barcode software. A few that we suggest is Bartender by Seagull Scientific, Nice Label, or Teklynx. These software allow you to design your label and barcodes to hold the info that you need.
The next thing you have to do is to choose a printer that suitable for your need. Below are the printer size we recommend, depending on how many labels you print out in a day and what size do you want your labels to be.

Printers.
Direct Thermal– chemically treated label is heated directly (short-term life on label) Usually used on shipping packages.
Thermal Transfer– ribbon ink is transferred onto the label (will stay on longer on label) Usually used on warehouse/retail store racks.

Desktop Printer– This type of printer, like the GX420t, is made for small volume applications. Usage is suitable for about 300-500 labels per week. It is perfect for asset labeling in an office or light printing duties at a retail store.
Industrial Printer It is larger and more rugged than desktop models for high volume print applications, like the Datamax I-4212e. Usage is suitable for printing thousands of labels per day. It is great for manufacturing and distribution centers as well as large retailers.
Mobile Printer– This type of printer provides mobility to users, like the Zebra QLn320. It’s small existence allows users to print on the go and perfect for delivery drivers and field workers to create label or receipt.

FDA Food Traceability with Zebra Labels

Posted July 21, 2015

Ever since the FDA passed the Food Safety Modernization Act, anyone involved in the food supply chain has to be able to produce, at any moment, the movement of food from supplier to the final retail store.  With legislation forcing food grower, manufacturers, and distributors to track food from field to the dinner table, having capable and affordable traceability technology is essential for everyone involved.

The biggest motivation behind the legislation is to make it easier to trace and find sources of contaminated food to the correct original source. This may seem at first as a measure mainly for the end consumer but it also protect growers and manufactures in being to very precisely remove their goods from suspicion of tainting as opposed to wide spread recalls. The costs involved in a capable barcode tracking system is noticeable less than even just one recall incident.

The Food Safety Modernization Act calls for, among other things, unique identifiers such as the GS1 databar, and full electronic pedigree or origins of the produce. Barcoding technologies are an important first step in this compliance as growers begin to change and update their record keeping methods. This is where Zebra and their wide range of printers and FDA approved labels are the perfect complete solution.

With printer options for low volume small businesses, GK420 and TLP2824 Plus, to high speed/high output models, ZT400 and 110Xi4, Zebra’s long standing industry experience and expertise is designed in every printer they make. From labeling a single tomato to whole crates and packaged foods, Zebra has a traceability solution that can improve your business’s accuracy and efficiency.
