Labelling Tips to Get Back to Business

If there’s one thing to be learned through the current global situation, it’s that we never know what’s around the corner. Despite the challenges faced, it’s encouraging to see business continuity in the face of adversity. While it’s true that many businesses had the opportunity to have employees working from home, many had teams in place in warehouses, offices and in the field from the very beginning of this pandemic. Those who worked remotely might now be going back to the office and businesses that may have been shut completely might be returning to “normal” soon.

Whatever your unique situation, from preparing a secure environment for your employees, to welcoming customers back to your store, to the shipping of products from your eCommerce sales, we’ve got label makers and tapes to set your business up for safety and success.

Labelling for workplace health & safety

It’s more important now then ever to clearly identify supplies and call out critical health and safety information. Brother’s TZe tapes are engineered with an innovative laminated tape technology, and are resistant to water, temperature, fading, abrasion and chemicals. And with over 60 colours and sizes to choose from including eye-catching hues like neon yellow and bright orange, it’s easy to create eye-catching labels for endless applications. They’re perfect for labelling shelves and common areas with important info.

Label your office supplies

Labelling everything around the office not only makes your business run smoothly, it also helps keep employees safe. By getting things organized with labels, you can limit cross-contamination between employees. A mix of laminated tapes and paper die-cut labels are great for a wide variety of things like office supplies, file folders, shelves, bins and more. Print banners up to 3 feet long with QL label printers – perfect for creating safety reminders and other types of informative signage.

Customer-facing signage

Create directional arrows, social distancing reminders and other signage to help your customers follow rules and health and safety measures. It’s a great way to put best practices in place and uphold government guidelines, so you can keep your clientele and staff safe, while helping your business run smoothly.

Shipping labelling needs solved

Ideal for warehouses, mailrooms and businesses that send packages envelopes and more, Brother’s QL-1100 wide format label printer print labels up to 4” wide – perfect for printing cost-effective shipping labels that conform with the standard sizes used by major shipping companies – to help you keep up with the demands of your business. Its Plug & Label feature lets you create and print labels without installing software on your computer and, by using convenient, drop-in rolls, there’s no need for ink or toner, making label printing convenient, quick and mess-free.

These truly are unprecedented times but take comfort in the fact that better days are waiting for us. One day, we’ll all look back on this historical (and certainly challenging) period and be proud of our tenacity and creativity to help our businesses move forward. Wishing you all the best!
