With the unique challenges faced in business today, most warehouse and distribution centers face the added tasks of scalability, flexibility and easy navigation. Magnetic inventory labels, a relatively low-tech item, can provide a quick and re-positionable solution for shelving and storage areas.
As companies grow, reorganize, bring in new products, and discontinue old ones, magnetic inventory labeling makes sense as both the holders and the cards can be relocated with the product.
It’s important to fully understand the scope of the labeling project to determine which product will work best in your warehouse or storage application.
Some things to consider include:
If this is the case, then data card holders or labels holders make it easiest to simply relabel the magnet.
Pre-generated labels work best with any of the magnetic inventory label systems except for the vinyl topcoat. Be sure to take into account the size of label your machine generates and match it to the corresponding size magnetic label.
Any surface that isn’t smooth may need a thicker magnet to ensure the label stays put. Both the standard magnetic strip and the magnetic vinyl coated strip are available in different thickness.
In areas that are customer-facing, label holders present a cleaner, more polished appearance.
Other considerations to take into account include determining if the labels should be pre-cut, score cut or uncut? Will standard lengths and widths work in your environment, or do you require custom sizing?
