Codes on Labels and Signs Gain Complexity as Technology Advances

Specialists understand the complexity of barcodes and the technology needed to ensure top quality for maximum efficiency in your warehouse. You should have a team that is well trained in the complex technology of label and sign printing and installation, ensuring that your warehouse labels and signs are functional quickly and accurately.

Retro-reflective labels are scannable as far away as 50 feet. This increases productivity by using a polyester-based material blended with microscopic glass beads for reflectiveness. Retro-reflective labels are human-readable, using text and characters combined with popular scanning symbology, graphics, and logos.

Color coding labels and signs can create a highly visible reference for where certain items are located in the warehouse. But when managing the printing color-coded labels and signs, it is essential to ensure that the printing equipment can quality check the barcodes to ensure there are no errors with scanning capability.

You should have a team that specializes in what you need and have all of the equipment on-hand to ensure your labels and signs are of top scannability quality. Proper barcode verification is essential to your daily operations. Hiring Specialists who can check the quality of every barcode on every label and sign before it is ever installed in your warehouse enhances your functionality.

Mistakes Can Be Costly

Making one mistake on labels and signs can become a costly error. From shipments being returned, fines from the customer, potential loss of customers, chargebacks, and the manpower that it takes to fill the first order and then the corrected order, an amazing amount of money can be lost. Other mistakes that can easily be made without the proper training and equipment include:

  • Improperly naming locations
  • Mislabeling bins and racks
  • Not ensuring scannability of labels and signs
  • Forgetting to quality check the scannability of every label and sign
  • Lack of safety when hanging signs from the ceiling
  • Cheaply made labels and signs affecting durability
  • Hiring temp workers (possibly the biggest mistake made)
