When should I use a Pre-printed Cable Marker Service?

There are two main options when it comes to printing labels – you can either use a pre-printed service or print-on-demand. Both have different advantages and disadvantages and the one that is most suitable for you will depend on the needs of your application. To help you understand, we’ve summarised some situations that pre-printed markers may be more effective;

  • High Volume Labelling - If you are needing to print thousands of labels every day that are identical or contain only sequential differences it can be a lot more convenient and cost-effective to use a pre-printed service. This is due to the capacity of labels needed. If you were to print-on-demand, you may acquire a great deal of costs buying Label Printers, ribbons and other accessories needed. Similarly, if your process involves a low volume, but high mix of different labels, it is advised to use a pre-printed service to save time swapping label stocks and managing multiple label formats.

  • Specialty Labelling - Many label printers are able to print on a wide variety of label materials. However, in projects that require the most durable type of markers, such as Stainless Steel, it is recommended you choose a pre-printed service as most label printers don’t have the ability to print on these materials. At Express Electrical, our own unique laser engraving service allows us to print information on the most durable materials, making the ideal option for specialty labelling!

  • Budget Constraints - As mentioned earlier, on-demand printer requires lots of different resources – a label printer, software, ribbons and ongoing maintenance. Therefore, if you don’t require variable data to be printed on your labels, it may be more cost-effective to choose a pre-printed service as this option does not require any additional purchases.

What are the benefits of Pre-Printed Cable markers?

Using a pre-printed service to print cable markers can be an appropriate choice if you are needing high volume labelling, speciality labelling or have budget constraints. Both printing-on-demand and pre-printed labels have unique advantages and disadvantages, therefore the best option for you will depend on the requirements of your application. Below are some of the most important benefits of using a pre-printed service ;

  • It Can Save Money- As mentioned above, printing-on-demand can be a costly task if you are needing to print lots of labels – label printers, ribbons, software and other accessories can be high in price, especially if you are needing to print on different material types. In comparison, using a pre-printed service means you do not have to pay for any additional consumables, making it the cheaper option if you are needing to print thousands of labels.
  • It Can Save Time- In many facilities, there may be a lack of resources available to print on demand. For example, if you had a small team it may become difficult to set up, print different cable labels and do maintenance work on a label printer, especially if the team is focused on other tasks. Therefore, in situations like this, it may be more practical to get your cable markers pre-printed as it removes the need to dedicate time to printing, meaning you will have time free to prioritise more important tasks.
  • Ease of Use - Similar to time restraints, many facilities do not have the capability to print on demand as the label printer and software may be too difficult to set up, update and maintain. For many companies, it can be a lot easier to outsource printing requirements as it’s easy to do, efficient and can be less stressful than printing on demand.
