4 Questions to Ask When Choosing a Label Printing Partner

Posted On

No matter if you’re launching a new business or product line, transitioning to in-house color label printing or simply looking to upgrade your current label printing setup, finding a trusted label printing partner is key. 

Because the level of expertise, quality and customer support can vary greatly from one provider to the next, it’s important to make an informed decision. 

So, what exactly should you look for in a label printing partner? Here are a few questions to ask:

#1: What Industries Do They Serve?

Whether you need to print labels for food and beverage products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, chemicals or anything in between, you want to work with a label company that understands your industry and specific label compliance requirements. 

Ideally, choose a label printing provider with experience across a range of diverse industries. You’ll benefit from the company’s accumulated knowledge and expertise in addressing labeling requirements and overcoming operational hurdles.

#2: Do They Partner with Leading Printer Brands?

Some providers only offer a few brands or models of printers. This can seriously hinder your ability to find the solution that best fits your label printing needs and budget.  

General Data is proud to partner with the industry’s leading printer brands and technology providers, including Epson, Honeywell, Brother, CAB, Zebra and many more. These strategic partnerships ensure we have the right mix of products and solutions to suit the unique needs of our customers. 

#3: Do They Supply Label Media, Ink and Other Accessories?

Investing in a high-quality label printer is just one piece of the puzzle. You’ll also need blank label media, inks or ribbons and software to create a seamless in-house label printing system.  

When you partner with General Data, we make it easy. As a single-source provider, we can help you identify the right label consumables and accessories to complement your new printer equipment from the start. 

#4: Can They Provide Expert Printer Repair Services?
