8 Ways You May Be Wasting Money and Resources on LPN Labels
Many operations use on-demand printing for certain barcode label applications. It can be a convenient way to include a variety of your pertinent product information, especially if your printing volumes are low and manageable.
But in-house, on-demand printing has its drawbacks.
“The downsides that we hear most often are that it’s time-consuming, error prone and can be a real drain on your resources,” said Gregg Schiltz, ID Label’s general manager.
“We encourage our clients to do a true cost/benefit analysis to fully understand the pros and cons of printing LPN labels on-demand. It’s important to look at all of your hard and soft costs when compared to outsourcing this important task to an experienced, quality manufacturer like ID Label.”

Labor Challenges? Here’s How Preprinted LPN Labels Can Help.
Warehouse operators are seeking ways to meet demand amidst a challenging labor market. Preprinted pallet and LPN labels are one way you can ensure workers spend their time productively.
“At the end of the day, your expertise and primary focus is on running your operations, not printing barcode labels,” Schiltz said. “Let the experts handle that.”
In-House vs. Outsource?
There can be many factors that go into the decision to print warehouse LPN (license plate number) or pallet labels internally or via a vendor.
“We encourage our clients to do a true cost/benefit analysis to fully understand the pros and cons of printing LPN labels on-demand,” Schiltz said. “It’s important to look at all of your hard and soft costs when compared to outsourcing this important task to an experienced, quality manufacturer like ID Label.”
Multiple Benefits of Preprinted Pallet Labels
For those who acquire preprinted sequential barcode labels from a manufacturer, the benefits are readily recognizable:
- Less expensive
- Higher quality, greater accuracy (no missing or duplicate numbers)
- More flexibility (colors, materials, finishes)
- Less labor- and resource-intensive
- Fewer expenses associated with materials, software, ribbons, maintenance and hardware depreciation
