Removable Printable Labels: What’s the Buzz All About?
The use of labels is widespread in the medical industry and will be part of your everyday routine whether working in the lab, as a nurse, or in a pharmacy environment. How they are used will make a difference in the quality of care that is provided and in lowering the risk of errors. For some tasks, a permanent adhesive is necessary to ensure the label cannot be removed or tampered with; however, what about the rest of the tasks in your daily routine? Have you considered removable printable labels as an alternative?
One of the most frustrating things about using a permanent adhesive is the inability to reposition an item or to quickly make changes. When permanent labels are used to mark glass, plastic, paper, or metal surfaces, the process of eradicating them is hard work. This is great if it is a lab sample or a prescription where removal should not occur. However, it is not so great when you want to put a bright note on a patient chart or need to manage materials. Removable printable labels may be used to create and print customized information for meeting specific needs.
What Advantages Do They Offer?
These labels are obtainable as a roll or a sheet for easy thermal transfer printing and can be created in a matter of minutes. Removable printable labels do not smudge or become unreadable as with handwritten alternatives. You are able to print whatever information is needed at any time for easy peel and stick replacement. This is a real time saver when a label is placed in the wrong location or needs to be updated with new information.
Additionally, removable printable labels serve many purposes from simple office supply labeling to equipment management. The labels use a strong bonding material to help them remain in place, but still make it possible to remove them without any residue or other issues. By using them, you do not have to keep a large count of pre-printed labels on hand. These can be used as a replacement for less frequently added information such as equipment tags or office management. Here are a few other advantages of using removable printable labels:
- Information Remains Intact
- Less Costly to Use and Keep on Hand
- Reduced Wear from Exposure
- Easy to Replace or Reposition
- Print Whatever Information is Needed
- Reduce Waste in Your Facility or Pharmacy
There are a number of reasons to keep removable printable labels on hand for managing information. They are also easy to remove from surfaces such as glass and plastics. No residue also means less clean up time after removal and reduced risk of harm to the surface it is placed on. If you want to free up time and get a cost effective labeling solution, then removable printable labels are the best option.
