Digital printing services and expedited label production offer vital lifelines for your company. When you need labels quickly and efficiently, a label printing company helps your production runs perform better while improving your time to market.
You might think these services cost you more money. However, it’s important to think of the money you actually save by having efficient label production through digital printing services. Label Solutions explains how this happens in today’s blog.

Improves Time to Market
Time to market matters when it comes to your products. Delays cost you money because you need to spend more on labor to deal with the delays. An efficient label printer using high-quality digital printing services alleviates one aspect of your time-to-market capabilities since everything is done on computers before prototyping happens.
Reduces Possible Fines
An efficient label printer should also understand what it takes to make your labels compliant with regulations. For example, compressed gas cylinder labels must follow hazardous materials regulations for shipping, storage, and handling. If your labels fall off, become worn, or don’t show the correct information, you face government fines. Then you have to spend even more labor costs correcting the problem that never should have happened in the first place.
You Get What You Pay For
Always remember the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” If you pay for cheap labels from a printer, that’s what you’ll get. Digital printing services certainly do make label printing more affordable and more efficient. But selecting the lowest price may lead to choosing the wrong materials for your products. Can the lowest-price labels you pick withstand low temperatures, high temperatures, shipping and handling, the weather, and chemicals?
You need to know what your product labels are meant for. One-time use products from companies that don’t care if the label stays on after purchase could probably afford low-cost labels.
However, certain industries need both efficiency and durability for label production. These industries include:
- Food & Beverage
- Compressed Gas
Lowers Your Labor and Printing Costs
You might think you can print your own labels in-house. You already have a color laser printer. All of the best word processing programs have label templates, and you can purchase label sheets from an office supply store or online.
But printing labels efficiently takes away from your core business model. Do you want to repurpose valuable staff time every month for label printing? Not only that, if you need a label run of 5,000, can your laser printer withstand that wear and tear? Do the labels you print stand up to your fast production line, shipping, and handling?
