How to Install 550,000 Warehouse Rack Labels and Signs—and Make It Look Easy!

In my new role as vice president of sales at ID Label Inc., I’m loving the opportunity to do site visits at some of our customers’ incredible warehouses and distribution centers.

I recently had the opportunity to visit a customer’s new DC, which was nearing completion. Our professional installation crew was finishing up installing more than 500,000 warehouse labels and 50,000 signs. Really impressive, I must say.

For every warehouse installation project, we provide complete planning and project management services. This includes material and layout recommendations and data file creation and management.

Newly labeled warehouse racking

For this recent project, the warehouse labels and signs were manufactured and assembled at our Lake Villa, Ill., facility and the team completed the installation with a week to spare!

ID Label installs millions of labels and signs annually—using our own team of ID Label employees (not temp workers) to ensure the job is done right. Our nationwide installation crews have many years of experience in every kind of warehouse racking environment—new and live facilities, ambient temps, cold storage, freezer locations . . . you name it.

Installing overhead bulk storage warehouse signs, aisle markers, dock signs and hanging zone markers—to name a few—requires its own level of expertise, knowledge and specialized equipment. As I’ve learned, you shouldn’t assume your in-house crew of warehouse specialists can tackle this challenge in their “spare time.”

“As a warehouse designer and implementer, I’ve used ID Label for several installations and they have always impressed. Their suggestions on best practices and experience with other installs definitely expedited the process, which helped against our tight timelines. Highly recommended!”
