Regardless the size of your company or project, variable data labels keep you in the loop in today's high tech information world. These types of labels and tags help you keep track of key information with accuracy and consistency. Variable data labels are common requests for companies looking to put their brand on asset labels, serial numbered labels, barcode tracking labels or warehouse labels. 

Depending on your application for variable data labels we can assist you in determining the proper material, nomenclature and set up of your data to make your project perform the way you intended. A skilled team is on hand and well versed in common file types and coding. All your numbering needs including consecutive serial numbers, UPC bar codes and QR codes are possibilities.

Direct imaging from computer to printing screen allows changes and update to information on custom labels easily and affordably without sacrifice in quality or substantial delays in production. 

Quality of each type of data is verified and approved with an electronic proof before parts are produced. We work with you to ensure that the resulting labels are configured to your needs.

QR Codes - Quick Response (QR) codes are used as a simple and small means to guide a user to a URL where more detailed information is provided for the product on which the code was displayed.  URLs, readable business cards, video links, specialized offers, and detailed inventory control are all available to you through a simple, efficient QR code. The code is scanned by mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, making QR Codes available to nearly every business and consumer. 

Bar Codes - Similar to QR codes, the bar configuration graphic holds specific information that is accessed through use of a scanner. The information commonly kept in this type of labels include make, model and serial number, purchase date, company name, address, contact details and more. 

Consecutive Numbering - Asset control or serial numbering of products as they are shipped out is important for companies who need to keep track of where product is or has been sent. Many times a serialized part will be designed to also include a bar code for easy scanning.

Material Options for Variable Data

Serial-numbered labels and other variable data graphics or codes can be produced on both metal and plastic substrates. These can be combined with other processes like embossing or doming to further enhance the impact of the label. The results are durable and reliable asset control tags, serialized labels and informative codes that reinforce your brand in the market. The primary method of numbering uses digital printing; however, metal stamping and screen-printing processes allow manufacture color-filled, pre-numbered metal nameplates and barcode tags that are easy to read and weather resistant.
