Is Your Company Getting Squeezed? Ways to Save $

Are you pressured? Feeling squeezed? Looking for ways to save money now that minimum wage is increasing?

I had a conversation with a customer who stated:

“With the minimum wage going up so much this year and next, that is really going to hurt us.  We have no way to recoup that money because we are so labor intensive in our operation.”

Are you having the same problem at your company?

Saving Money When Minimum Wage is Raised

We talked about some alternatives.  I asked if they could implement additional automation equipment.  Although they could, they have run out of space and would have to move several operations to a larger facility.

Although I could only talk about cost savings as it pertains to the label industry, I came up with some ideas that I would like to share.

Avoid Being Squeezed with these Label Supplies:

  1. Look for less expensive alternatives.  Over the past 3-5 years, there have been many advances in label materials.  One might be available as an alternate for your application.
  2. There have been several new advances in thermal transfer ribbons.  We now have three grades of Wax, economy, mid-range and premium. You might be able to move down a grade without adversely affecting print quality.
  3. Set up a 90 day or 6 month blanket order for your supplies.  As with most products, the more you order, the lower the cost. You only get invoiced when your product ships.
  4. Most importantly, you could change from a branded product to a private label product.  We have seen savings as much a 25%!
  5. Work with a company that has a lifetime printhead warranty.
