If you have a warehouse environment that uses label printers for a number of elements including picking and shipping, inventory control, regulatory compliance, and more, it is important that you choose the right label printer for the tasks required.

A common mistake that many make is in choosing the wrong label printer or making their device perform tasks it is not designed to handle. You need to make sure you choose the right one and our AIS experts have created this blog post to help.

The Right Choice is Essential

Here at AIS Ltd, we can help with all your label needs. This includes outdoor long term storage labels and label printers. We have label printers that can be configured to suit all your requirements. We can advise you on the right device with the ability to print barcodes for any inventory and with any information required.

Many people attempt to economise by choosing a label printer that can be used for various tasks and does an acceptable job, but the problem with this is that there can be a lot of waste. Label media that is being used outside of its intended usage can and does fail and it might not adhere to the surface you want. Using media that isn’t designed for your label printer can also damage the printer and this will cause downtime and additional cost. Add to this the amount of time and money spent on IT specialists who will have to deal with your printer failure. The costs soon add up, but you can avoid them by choosing the right label printer from the start. Here at AIS Ltd, we can help you select the right option.

Industrial label printers are designed to work in harsh environments and busy warehouses. We recommend looking for an all-metal frame that will protect you printer from bumps and bangs as well as damage from dust. Industrial label printers are engineered for high volume printing and it is essential that you have a printer that will keep up with the demands you throw at it.

A mobile label printer is another option and this allows for barcode labels to be printed on the go rather than having to go back to a central print station every time. This can save time.
