Are you Missing out by Purchasing From a Company That’s not a Label Solution Provider?
Any vendor can sell adhesive labels. A vendor simply needs to strike a contract with a label manufacturer to sell the company’s products, and develop a business model to see the plan through.
As long as the labels it sells meet the compliance standards that buyers require (FDA, EPA, CDC, etc.), a label vendor can sell adhesive labels like hotcakes, regardless of the fact that it doesn’t specialize as a full-service label provider that has the hands-on experience and expertise of a professional label manufacturer. They may not offer a wide selection of products, and custom labels probably won’t be an option, because they lack the expertise and resources a manufacturer can provide.
What is a Label Solution Provider?
Technically, any company that sells labels can be considered a label solution provider, even if the business sells a limited range of labels for a particular printing system. But this business model isn’t what most label users expect to encounter from a “solution provider”.
Instead, they anticipate working with a seller that offers an array of stock solutions that are ready to ship, as well as custom solutions that apply to one or more of six label components: liner, release coating, adhesive, face stock, primer or barrier coating between adhesive and face stock, and the top coat that rests on the face stock.
Moreover, the issue isn’t whether a company provides label solutions — as any seller of labels inevitably does — but whether the seller offers a range of solutions that meet your present labeling needs, and whether it can supply new solutions if your requirements change.
Sellers operating strictly as vendors generally have more limited product offerings than manufacturers that sell their own products. Furthermore, buying straight from a manufacturer can often save money, by eliminating waste that often comes with a one size fits all label.
Need a New Label Solution Provider?
If you’re not sure, there is an easy way to tell: If you need a label solution your present provider can’t supply, then you need a new provider, preferably one that offers a wide range of stock labels and the option to order custom if a stock product doesn’t hit the mark.
