Why we will never warehouse 3.25 billion labels – we just print on demand for our customers!

why warehouse billions of labels when you can now print them on remand?

why warehouse billions of labels when you can now print them on demand?

A recent news story in the labelling trade press has caused a stir in the industry, with the investment by a German company in warehousing for over 3 billion labels.  This is precisely the reversal of the trend seen by early adopters in the UK of digital label printing such as us, where label companies and their customers are actively reducing their stocks, and hence their working capital and waste from obsolete stock by taking advantage of the digital ‘print on demand’ model.

At Mercian Labels our finished goods storage is just under 3.25 shelves, in the corner of the packaging store room, accessed once every few weeks…  Everything we print is on demand, quickly, and to customers exact specifications of design, quantity per sort, size and delivery location.  Its a fantastically efficient system, and if you are looking to solve your label inventory, stock-holding, and lead time issues, then our advice is to go digital!  Contact us for a conversation with one of our account managers.
