Achieve Ultimate Efficiency

by printing at the point of need

As labor costs continue to rise, retailers are looking for more ways to drive costs out of their operations, without sacrificing customer service or employee satisfaction. When you print shelf labels, shelf talkers, and signage in the aisle will accomplish both of these tasks. Print at the point of need to eliminate wasted steps, and keep personnel on the floor, so they are available for customer service!

Print at the Point of Need

N-AISLE PRINTING combined with the advanced automation capabilities of DESIGN-R-LABELS brings a high level of efficiency to printing replacement shelf labels and shelf talkers. Allowing retailers to increase productivity, reduce waste, and stimulate sales.

Get rid of the "band-aid" tag!

Mobile printers and handheld PDA computers finally gave retailers a solution for printing replacement tags and talkers without wasting an entire sheet of labels. However, mobile printers alone, without the proper software to drive them, have limited capabilities when it comes to graphics, fonts, sizing, and spacing. This makes duplicating labels printed with conventional laser printers almost impossible. As a solution to this problem, many retailers resort to printing a temporary tag in the aisle. They then come back later to replace it with a permanent label printed with a laser printer. This “band-aid” method not only creates a new inefficiency, but it also disrupts continuity and the overall look and feel of quality in your store. DESIGN-R-LABELS with the N-AISLE PRINTING option is the solution that retailers around the world have sought. No more need for the temporary “band-aid” tag!

Temporary tags no longer needed!

Unlike the software that comes with mobile printers, DESIGN-R-LABELS and N-Aisle Printing can use any font, font size, barcode size, and formatting rules. The end result is a label that looks identical to labels printed with a laser printer. “Belt or Hip” printers print “temporary” shelf tags that require you at some point to, find the item again and hang a permanent tag. Which eliminates much of the labor savings. The tags printed with the N-Aisle Printer will have virtually the same shelf life as tags printed by your laser printer.

This solution provides retailers the ability to print larger signage, such as 8.5” x 11” sheets, in monochrome or color, directly where it is needed.
