There are many reasons why you may want to redo the labels on your existing inventory.
It could be that they contain outdated information. For instance, they may still show your old company logo, address, or contact information. Other reasons that may compel you to update your product labels include external factors like new state regulations. Mistakes, such as typos and printing errors in a large printing order, may lead to a design change as well. Or it could be that you simply want to create store-specific labels or incorporate new promotional offers into your existing packaging.
Whatever the reason may be, redoing the labels yourself would be time-consuming and expensive. A much better way is to avail of labeling rework fulfillment services.
What are labeling rework fulfillment services?
Labeling rework fulfillment services are offered by contract labeling services providers like Pro-Motion Industries. These services involve altering product labels that are affixed on a company’s existing inventory. This could mean printing and applying cover-up labels onto packaging to update the information on it for reasons such as:
- Rebranding (e.g., new brand/company name, logo, image, or graphics)
- Change in product formulation (e.g., updates to ingredients, nutritional information)
- New product description
- Change in price
- Safety information updates (e.g., warnings, instructions, or dosages)
- New or updated UPC barcode or QR code
- Outdated contact information
Cover-up labels can also be used as fixes for the following concerns:
- Grammatical or spelling mistakes
- Missing text
- Printing errors
- Faded text or graphics
- Incorrect numbers on barcodes
- UPC barcode assigned to the wrong product
- Compliance issues with state or industry regulations (e.g., cannabis product labels must have at least six-point font in California)
Leveraging labeling rework fulfillment services is also perfect for when you have a promotional offer that you want to display on product packaging. You could affix an additional label that has the details on how customers can enter a competition. Alternatively, you could completely replace the existing label with a new one.
What are the benefits of availing labeling rework fulfillment services?
You stand to gain a lot when you outsource your labeling rework fulfillment needs.
When you partner with a reliable labeling services provider like Pro-Motion Industries, you can expect high-quality output because we use first-class equipment and materials. This gives you access to better technology and more labeling rework options.
Moreover, we combine our two decades of experience with the latest industry best practices, so you’re guaranteed that your premium labels are applied properly and meet all compliance requirements. Every package that we rework is hand-inspected as well to ensure consistent quality. Not only that, but we also make sure your products are well wrapped for shipment so that they’ll look pristine once they reach retail shelves.
2. Cost and time savings
If you choose to conduct labeling rework fulfillment in-house, it will entail paying for space to store your existing stocks and redo their labels. You will also need to purchase or rent the necessary machines, tools, and materials. For example, you’ll need a cutter to remove existing labels from containers via splicing. If you will simply affix a new label on top of the old one, then a cover-up label may be more useful.
Labor is another huge cost. Having your existing staff do the labeling rework may be problematic since they may not be skilled enough for the task. They may end up making costly mistakes as a result. They will also likely take longer to do the task, which means you’ll need to pay them for overtime. What’s more, labelling rework will prevent them from doing the tasks that they were hired to do in the first place.
On the other hand, if you decide to employ skilled workers for the labeling rework project, they will likely demand higher wages given their expertise. You will also have to spend time and money posting job ads, sifting through resumes, conducting interviews, and so on. In the end, you’ll be spending a lot of effort and resources for workers who will only be around for the duration of the project.
Alternatively, you can simply outsource your labeling rework fulfillment needs to Pro-Motion Industries. This saves you from spending on venue, equipment, materials, labor, and other necessary resources. You also get to keep your manpower lean while leveraging our large team of experienced specialists who can do the job quickly and accurately the first time around, regardless of the complexity of the projects.
