As more and more manufacturers make labeling part of their production process, the question is not whether manufacturers will produce their own labels but which industry will be the next to do so.
It turns out the answer is right under your feet.
Carpet manufacturers across Turkey are the latest group to realize the benefits of in-house label production.
Turkey produces over 60 percent of the world’s carpets. Each carpet requires a label that includes a variety of information, including bar codes, descriptions, colors, and even images.
To meet that demand, Memjet’s OEM partner Printing Innovation is collaborating with Turkish label provider Tuna Label to deliver printing solutions that offer a faster, more effective way to print colorful, quality labels for the carpets.
“We have used the iCUBE label printer in our own operation and distributed it to carpet manufacturers in the region,” says Sercan Tuna, sales and marketing manager at Tuna Label. “It has transformed the way labels are produced for the carpet and textile sector in Turkey and the Middle East.”
The Benefits of In-House Label Production
Like other manufacturers, the textile and carpet industry has realized key benefits of using an iCUBE label printer to produce labels in-house:
- Cost savings – Manufacturers no longer need to wait for a print-service provider to produce the labels they need. They simply print as many labels as they require whenever they need them, eliminating delays and costly waste.
- Improved efficiency – Label printing simply becomes part of the carpet production process. During the ready-made garment phase, the manufacturer prints the barcodes directly onto the label. This simplifies the process, eliminating the time and cost of producing separate barcodes.
- Reduced errors – Manufacturers can instantly produce labels that include visuals of the carpet. Having this image on the label eliminates color mismatch and ensures that the right carpet is sent to the right customer.
