It is common for a distribution operation to use an integrated label as a picking document, pack list and shipping label. It is a convenient single document solution for both picking and shipping products.
Integrated labels are a great way to both ship a product and invoice it at the same time. In one document, the client has everything they need to send out an item and present a bill for payment.
At times, a direct mail shipment will need to be returned. With an integrated label, a client has the return label built right into the pack list, making it easy for the purchaser to return a product if needed.
With an integrated label, a pharmacist is able to print important patient education information about the prescription as well as the labels that are applied to the prescription bottle or box. This allows for an exact match, making it easier and quicker to fill prescriptions for their clients.
Marketing departments are great places to make an integrated label sales call because they are always looking for new ways to get effective marketing messages across to their clients. And, if they can get their message to ride free in a package that they know will be opened and seen by their client, even better.
Our integrated labels use the face of the form as the face stock for the label, but instead of a patch that creates edges that can be caught in the printer, our liner is applied across the entire width of the form. This allows for very tight tolerances and a very smooth, consistent glued edge so the integrated label runs through the printer without jamming. Also, the full width liner is less bulky than an affixed piggy back label or a seamed form/label combination. It is very cost effective since the entire integrated label is applied in-line at high speeds as the form is being created.
