There is no need to keep multiple types of pre-printed labels in inventory since you are able to print only what is needed for each task – this eliminates the need to store preprinted label inventory- saving valuable office space, as well as a reduction in individual label costs.

With Inkjet printing you can individually create labels that are specific to each product or task. For example, this means that items can have color coded inventory labels, allowing items to be retrieved faster since it has an increased visibility to improve operational efficiencies.

Less Waste with Increased Security
Inkjet label printers are simply more efficient than thermal ribbon printers by how they use ink. While thermal transfer ribbons use an entire area of ribbon, including the parts which are not used, Inkjet printing is efficient and only uses ink on the parts to be printed. Not only is this more efficient by reducing waste, but it allows for faster print speeds allowing for increased productivity.
Regardless of the size and design of the label, thermal ribbon printing consumes the ribbon even if sections aren’t used or printed on. Because Inkjet label printers only use the necessary ink for each the label size and design, it is more economical and reduces waste. Moreover, since the printed information will not be recorded on ribbons, it keeps sensitive information safe, whereas thermal ribbons need to be discarded which can leave customer, client and company information exposed.
