Food labels are very important; but with numerous different methods of creating a label, many may be thinking “Why should I choose a digital labelling solution?"
If you would like to inspect our digital labels for yourself, you can make use of our sample request service and see the quality of our labels firsthand. However, if you would like to read more about how a digital labelling solution can be very beneficial, here are three reasons why:
1. Provide Your Customer With Information
Informing the customer is very important for a variety of reasons. Firstly you are required by law to include certain pieces of information about the product, such as the price of the product or metric measures (with someexceptions). More information regarding legal requirements can be found on Gov.uk
Informing the customer is more than just a legal requirement, it is also smart marketing. The more information you give your customer, the more informed their purchase. This can be beneficial for various reasons, perhaps a customer is searching for a healthier alternative to one of their favourite foods; if your product offers a healthier alternative then the food label is a fantastic opportunity to convince them to purchase your product.
Another benefit of informing the customer is that you can give them additional information about the origin of the product. If for example you are selling bananas, adding information to the food label regarding the farm could potentially be very interesting to the customer, this information could possibly inspire a purchase.
2. Digital Labels Are A Cost Effective Labelling Solution
Other methods of creating labels can be very expensive, especially for short orders. With some other printing methods, you require a printing plate. This can make small orders very expensive however, with digital labels; you don't need a printing plate, which has numerous benefits. You could take advantage of our digital labelling system and request a variety of different labels. Perhaps you could make specific labels for different times of the year or specific events. If for example, you're creating labels for cheese, you could include extra information about what your cheese pairs well with and why it should have a place on your cheese board this year at Christmas.
If you're creating a label for candy/sweets, you could take advantage of digital printing and create special labels for Halloween to try and encourage users to purchase your products as candy/sweets for trick-or-treaters.
Our state-of-the-art digital printer isn't just fantastic for small or diverse labelling solutions; it can also handle large orders with ease. Our main printer (the EFI Jetrion 4900ML) enables us to transfer a print file onto a finished roll without any interruptions. The technology is fantastic; we can offer a swift and reliable turnaround for projects of various sizes, making digital labelling a cost effective and rapid labelling solution.
3. Digital Labels Have Great Counterfeit Protection
Counterfeit consumable items are very dangerous. With legitimate food products, you know what you are eating because the information is on the food label. However with counterfeit products, you're in the dark. This makes them very dangerous. You can read more about counterfeit food and drink items in this Press Release on the Europol website.
Whilst it is sadly impossible to 100% remove the possibility of somebody attempting to counterfeit your product, you can make it difficult for them to create an accurate counterfeit of your label.
Digital labels can use a variety of different counterfeit protection measures: you could layer toner in a specific way so it creates raised images, you can use a feature called toner protection or you can use UV toner.
