Asset Labeling: A Great Way to Use Your Thermal Printer

asset labeling

Are you using your thermal label printer to help you with asset labeling and tracking?

As a business owner you know that if an employee is really good at a lot of things they become more valuable. The same is true of the equipment you use every day to run your business smoothly. If a machine can perform several tasks or be used in multiple ways it saves space, time, and money.

That is always our goal at PaladinID. Yes, we have a huge inventory of labels, printers, printheads, and more. You have a lot of choices of where you can buy these items. We hope you buy them at our online store.

But you get so much more from us than just FREE SHIPPING.


You need to get the most out of your labeling supplies and equipment. Let’s take a look at what you are currently using and possibly what more you could be doing with your equipment.

For example, are you using your thermal label printer to help you with asset labeling and tracking?

How can my thermal label printer help with Asset Labeling?

Asset tracking, or informally known as “where is my stuff?” is a process that almost every business needs to do. However, it can be difficult to get started. Whether it’s the computers, printers, and copy machine in the office or tools and machines in your warehouse, every item contributes to a smooth operation.

Asset management allows you to efficiently locate, use, maintain, and replace the items you need on a daily basis.

Step ONEasset labeling

Asset labeling is the very first step in a successful asset tracking system. If you label each item with an individual ID you can easily track each item uniquely.

GREAT NEWS! Thermal label printers are a perfect solution for asset labeling. You can print labels with a variety of materials (not just plain paper.) Many of your assets get used frequently and get cleaned a lot or need to be waterproof.  Some of them may be used outside or even stored outside so they require weather-resistant labels for heat and cold. If some of your assets need to be sterilized, you’ll need labels for that too. They can all be printed with the same printer!

Fun Fact: We provide free samples of many of our labels so you can test them and see if they are exactly what you need.

Step TWO

The next step is to label the locations (e.g. rooms, shelves, racks, etc.) of the assets so you can quickly call up all the items that should be in that location.
