Variable data printing for labels is a fancy name for a straightforward process with clear uses for small businesses today. When deciding which combination of label printer and software will work for a particular company, it's worth taking a moment to consider whether there are any use cases that would improve with the introduction of variable labels.
The following are a few of the projects accomplished through variable data printing, putting this technology to work in solving business problems:
- Sequential numbering: Putting a unique sequence of numbers on each label a company prints can deliver a few valuable advantages. For instance, if businesses want to make their items individually traceable to prevent counterfeiting or help with potential recalls, this technique makes applying those serial numbers part of the labeling process rather than a separate step. Alternately, companies can individually number their limited-edition items to let customers know those products are special and drive demand.
- Personalized content printing: Customers may be thrilled to see that the packages of products have been customized just for them. Putting unique text or imagery on every item that rolls off the production line can add a unique and impressive touch to a business's offerings.
