How Food & Beverage Brands Benefit from On-Demand Color Label Printing

Posted On


Breaking into the fast-paced and highly competitive food and beverage industry is no small feat. In a market where first impressions are everything, it takes more than a phenomenal product to succeed; you’ll also need high-quality product and packaging labels that stand out on the shelf. 

The good news is, you don’t have to pay a premium for professional-looking color labels. In-house, on-demand color label printing is an ideal solution for emerging brands in the specialty food and beverage space. 

Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits: 

Elevate Your Food and Beverage Brand Presence

You take great pride in the unique flavor profiles and variations of your food and beverage products. Your product and packaging labels should reflect the same level of care. On-demand color label printing gives you the freedom to customize your labels quickly and affordably for each batch, including special limited editions.

Since you print labels only as you need them, you can seize opportunities to create seasonal or promotional label designs without a major investment in a large volume of pre-printed labels that may end up unused. On-demand color label printing solutions provide a cost-effective way to elevate your brand presence and create instant shelf impact. 

Enhance Sustainability for Small-Batch Production

More and more food and beverage brands are focusing on sustainability, not only in terms of production processes but also eco-friendly packaging. In particular, smaller-batch craft beverages and specialty food brands tend to focus on sustainability in terms of sourcing high-quality, local ingredients and reducing unnecessary waste. Consumers care about sustainability, too. According to the Business of Sustainability index report, 80% of consumers ages 18-34 said they would pay more for sustainable products. 

Bringing your color label printing in-house is a smart way to support your brand’s sustainability efforts. Not only will it reduce label inventory waste, but producing your own labels locally helps minimize the carbon impact of shipping pre-printed labels.

Ensure Rapid Turnaround with On-Demand Label Printing

Food and beverage brands must respond quickly to ever-evolving trends, shifts in the market and industry requirements. In particular, labeling compliance regulations are often complex and subject to change at a moment’s notice. Each year, thousands of products are pulled from shelves by the FDA, often due to labeling issues such as undeclared ingredients. 

On-demand color label printing enables your food or beverage brand to act fast when label updates are required for any reason. No more costly delays waiting for a new order of pre-printed labels to print and ship; instead, you can update your labels instantly with complex variable data like tracking or batch numbers, expiration dates, ingredients, allergens, serving sizes, and more.
