What to Look for From A Digitally Printed Label Manufacturer
CS Labels | 15th September 2020
When it comes to choosing the right label printing company, it might, at first glance, seem very simple. However, the truth is that it can be a whole lot less straightforward than you might expect. Technology is moving forward all the time and finding the right digitally printed label manufacturer is often something of a challenge. However, there are a few things that you can focus on to make sure that you find the right one.
Focus on Quality
The most obvious thing to consider is the level of quality that a label manufacturer provides. After all, no matter what other qualities they may have, if the digital labels that they produce are below the standard that you expect for your business, that's just not going to be good enough.
Even if you're only printing a limited number of labels, you want to be sure that you're always working with professionals. Don't let ”low cost” and “super-fast turnaround” trick you into choosing a service that is not properly checked for quality.
At CS Labels, we manufacture labels from both the standard and functional, vibrant and eye-catching to high end embellished labels and we are constantly looking at new ways to evolve our products and process to enable us to continue delivering award-winning label solutions for our customers.
We are multi-award winners after all!
Of course, this doesn't mean that you should ignore the need for a fast turnaround entirely. It's often just as important to find the perfect balance of quality and speed when looking for digitally printed labels. After all, if they end up taking far longer than promised then that can cause delays throughout other areas of your business. A reliable label manufacturer is one that is skilled and experienced enough to provide you with a high-quality result while still being able to meet a reasonable deadline.
Also, with digital print, we can deliver what you need, when you need it. SO, no need to stock up, meaning no extra storage space and expense too.
Another important thing to remember is that you want to find a manufacturer who can deliver the same high level of quality and within the same time frame every single time. It's not good enough for a manufacturer to only be able to deliver on their product successfully 80% of the time. You need to be sure that the service they provide is always consistent.
This means that you want to find a manufacturer with a good print management system to help maintain clear continuity within the brand and ensure that all special requirements are met without going outside of the agreed schedule or over budget.
As much as you should never allow yourself to be suckered into choosing a substandard service by an attractive price point, it's still important to make sure that whatever you're paying for is worth the price. Value is still worth paying attention to. This can be a challenge because you're paying for something that is often custom made and may not yet exist.
There are many factors to consider when figuring out your budget but a custom label printing company is one that can offer a flexible service at a reasonable and realistic price. Yes cost should always be considered, but are you getting added value or a solution? At CS Labels, we’re experts at delivering both!
