Pros & Cons of Printing Your Own Labels vs. Working with A Professional Label Printer

Pros of Printing Your Own Labels:

The main benefit of DIY label printing is that you can print labels you need as you need them. This can help control inventory and provide you with on-demand product label printing.

Cons of Printing Your Own Labels:

While DIY label printing is attractive at first, when you consider the costs; additional overhead for inks and label stocks, as well as printer maintenance issues that can cause down time and lost revenue, you will find that for any significant volume of labels needed, outsourcing your label printing to a professional is the way to go. With better label printing quality to match these higher quantity product label needs, you will find that outsourcing label printing will allow you the cost efficiencies and time saved to allow you to focus on driving your business forward.

Another benefit of using a professional label printer such as Lightning Labels, is that depending on the industry in which you operate in, tapping into a professional resource can help provide valuable guidance to make sure you use the right types of labels for your products. For example, if you need water resistant labels, a professional can provide insight into the right label materials to use. If your products are refrigerated or need to be weather resistant, a professional label printer like Lightning Labels can help you find the right label material solution. This is where Lightning Labels separates themselves from the rest.
