Business card for cups and cans
From allergens to filling quantity to sales description – anyone offering pre-packaged goods or canned food must label them with comprehensive information. Labels and printers are therefore a must in the butcher’s store, but they also open up many opportunities to impress customers with their high-tech features.
If you label cups or cans, you can also turn them into an attractive “business card” for your company, depending on your taste. Manufacturers provide a wide range of products for this purpose, ranging from black-and-white to color, or from thermal to inkjet to laser printers. They can be combined with packaging machines or used as mobile devices for manual marking.
In addition, labels are made of many materials – transparent film, thermal or even grass paper – and with company-specific layouts, holograms, QR or bar codes as desired. They are usually self-adhesive, using whatever type of adhesive is most appropriate to the application, for example for the frozen food sector or for easy removal.
When investing in new equipment, important features to watch for are a clean print image, smudge-proof labeling and easy handling – for example, when changing label rolls or product parameters. For larger companies, devices exist that can be integrated into production lines. Smaller companies tend to use printers that are flexible enough to print products on counters, shelves or in warehouses, that can apply as many types of labels as possible, and that can therefore print on different substrates.
