Purpose of Warehouse Labels


Modern Warehouse Management Systems aim to improve quality, production, space efficiency and inventory accuracy.  A key component to achieving these goals are the warehouse labels.  Effectively labeling a warehouse with human readable information and barcodes saves time while receiving, putting away, finding, picking and shipping the correct items.  We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and goals so that we can recommend labels that are properly positioned on shelves, racks, cages, pallets, bins, hanging signs and floors.  We offer label and sign solutions for all levels, bays, aisles and locations.  We also help our clients determine the information and color schemes, material and adhesive and/or warning information (danger, speical handling, etc)  that should be included on the labels.


Types of Custom Warehouse Labels


Custom warehouse location labels are most often synthetic (polyester, polypropylene or vinyl) with a strong permanent adhesive and laminated for durability.  Not all environments and applications use the same materials.  Common types of labels include:


  • Magnetic - labels mounted on magnets for locations that change and in freezer environments when the racking is too cold to apply a label
  • Mounted - labels mounted on placards (stock or custom sizes made of a durable blend of UV resistant PVC or aluminum)
  • Retroreflective - necessary for long-range scanning
  • Floor Kits - durable labels with an aluminum frame, mounting hardware and polycarbonate overlay to protect the label
  • Asset - durable labels used to track assets in several environments
  • Extreme Environment - label material and/or adhesives that are subject to extreme temperatures, high pressure water or chemical contact
