Along with printers, reams upon reams of paper to print on, and shredders to securely dispose of that all that paper, labels of all shapes and sizes are some of the most integral office supplies we can purchase. They can provide a last-second update to paperwork, keep in-transit inventory from winding up in the wrong places, and let you know exactly what around the office is of urgent importance. As such, there’s a big market in the business world for removable labels. Here’s the thing about removable labels, though: any label is a removable one if you don’t care about anything else.
What you’re really looking for is an easily removable label: one that sticks around—literally—and does its job when you need it to, but then leaves without a fuss when it’s time for you to relieve it from active duty. This is a difficult needle to thread (or label to affix), but at Chromalabel, we believe our products can do both jobs—staying on their subjects without leaving anything behind or doing any damage on the way out. That’s why we’d like to tell you about the importance of easily removable labels across various industries in a blog entry whose information, unlike our adhesives, does stick around when you’re done.
Best Practices in Medical Facilities
Healthcare is a dynamic field. Statuses and situations can change daily, hourly, or even sooner. While paper-based medical records still hold primacy in the medical sector, being able to readily update these records is a definite positive. Hospitals and clinics make great use of color-coded stickers in medical records with colors denoting a patient’s special accommodations, urgency of care, and other details that bright colors make apparent at a moment’s glance. To account for any changes to a patient’s record that fall into this color-coding, it’s important that doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals can remove outdated color-coded stickers or labels. Once they do, they need to replace them with new ones without either creating ambiguities by slapping new ones over old ones or doing damage to the paperwork by tearing them off. The best labels are strong when you need them to be but also go out of service once users no longer need them. That’s something we strive for with our products. In the healthcare field, where every detail matters to doctors and their patients, no one can afford miscommunications arising from poor organization.
Easily Manage Your Merchandise
Perhaps worry-free label management in retail is something you can put a price tag on after all. Small businesses—from brick-and-mortar establishments all the way down to the proprietors of a single-weekend garage sale—need to clearly mark the prices of their wares when UPC codes aren’t an option and hot-off-the-press sale prices change what’s in the computer. Being able to remove an old label and put a new one on is quite important in the retail world where discrepancies in pricing can frustrate a customer like few other issues—and you and your staff don’t care too much for such mix-ups, either. The fewer labels on a product, the better, so look to our deep and vibrant selection of colored labels to make matters perfectly clear to all parties involved.
Protecting Sensitive Items
In the course of relocation or reorganization—whether it’s office space, retail, or even residential—even delicate goods such as antiques, old books, and breakables require labeling to make sure they end up in the right place. In this case, you want labels that not only clearly mark them as fragile but labels that themselves respect that fragility by being easily removable. Let’s circle back to business. Antique stores and unique bookstores represent an overlap of protecting items and managing inventory. The importance of easily removable labels is especially clear when you need to clearly denote the price of an item without ruining it with residual adhesive or damaging it in an effort to take the label off.
Keeping Things Clean in the Food Service World
Another industry in which the importance of clear and effective labeling is vital is the foodservice and hospitality industry. Ensuring food safety for your customers can be the difference between a thriving establishment and one that’s been shut down by the health department—or one that has the trial lawyers knocking at your door, and not for a table for two. To that end, the food products in restaurant or cafeteria refrigerators, freezers, and pantries require labels upon which people can easily find contents, dates of acquisition and expiration, and any possible allergy concerns. While food isn’t reusable, its containers often are, and their bins shouldn’t make matters more complicated by accumulating bygone labels of produce and poultry past. A commercial kitchen is a stressful and chaotic atmosphere even when it’s firing on all cylinders—and the tension really ramps up once things go even slightly awry. Avoid adding to the confusion and the woeful consequences of that confusion by making sure kitchen personnel can remove out-of-date foodservice labels and replace them with new ones before any misreads or mishaps.
Easy-To-Remove Labels in Every Color Under the Sun
At Chromalabel, we understand the importance of easily removable labels, but there’s a lot more to labeling that we also know. We know that when you choose colored labels rather than plain white ones, you have some organizational strategies in mind here that go beyond how nice a splash of hot pink can look on a sheet of paper. That’s why, in addition to durability when you need it and easy removal when you don’t, our lines of colored dots, stickers, and labels feature vibrant colors that won’t fade easily, keeping a rainbow of meaningful color running across your paperwork and inventory. Unlike real rainbows in the sky that compel us to reach for our phones and grab a snapshot before they fade away, the rainbows of colors in Chromalabel products will be there for you to appreciate for as long as you’d like.
