Retail Technologies, Inc. (RTI) Headquarters


Providing Retailers with Retail Shelf-Edge Solutions

SINCE 1987

Providing retailers a professional method of creating timely POP signage and barcode shelf labels was the idea behind the founding of Retail Technologies, Inc. in May of 1987. Now, thousands of customers later, that is still our sole mission. We have customers in all 50 states and more than a dozen foreign countries.

Shelf-Minder was first product released by RTI in 1987. This MS-DOS product supported dot-matrix printers. 1989 saw the release of DESIGN-R-LABELS for DOS. Among the many industry first for a sign and label printing program, this application had WYSISYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) design program, support for color, dot-matrix and laser printers. February of 1999 saw the release of DESIGN-R-LABELS for Windows. This was the retail industry’s first sign and label printing program written from the ground up to take advantage of Microsoft’s 32-bit Windows operating system. To take advantage of the opportunities presented by the growth of the internet, RTI rewrote the program to release DESIGN-R-LABELS 3.0. This new version supports both thick and thin client functionality over a network and the internet. 

DRL 4.0 Coming Soon


Multi-Lingual & Mobile Compatible


We are proud to announce that the latest version, DESIGN-R-LABELS 4.0, will be released later this year. This new version of industry-leading sign and label printing software has been completely rewritten from the ground-up using Microsoft.Net. The program features a new, more powerful user interface and added support for tablets, smartphones and any computer using a Web-browser. Multi-lingual support is also featured for worldwide compatibility. Moving into the future, RTI is constantly researching new technologies to determine how they might impact sign and label printing for the retail industry and to take advantage of the most promising opportunities for our customers.
