Frequently Asked Questions, Product Answers, Product Tips

Q. What is your service area?

A. Better Label primarily serves the Southeastern United States: Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky. However, we have industrial customers throughout the USA.

Q. What is your most popular label?

A. One of the most popular labeling methods, pressure sensitive labels (PS labels) have it all. They are self-adhesive and compatible with almost any container material, shape or product type. Pressure Sensitive Labels combine easy label application and a very low entry quantity.

Our customers like pressure sensitive labels for contoured surfaces and squeezable containers. The clear film options have a world of possibilities for revealing more of the product inside. Pressure Sensitive are an optimal choice for food, beverage, wine and spirits, household chemicals and automotive products.

Q. Are you new to the industry?

A. We’re pros. We’ve been solving industrial clients’ labeling challenges for more than 40 years.

Q. What support and repair plans do you offer?

A. We keep an extensive parts inventory and have factory trained technicians available to repair equipment and train your personnel.

Q. How can we see your equipment and solutions in action?

A. We’d be glad to make that happen for you. We can schedule an “in-plant” demonstration for you at our Atlanta headquarters.

Q. We need to print barcodes on our product labels which of your products do we need?

A. Thermal label printers and Thermal transfer printers are ideal for bar code printing because they produce accurate, high-quality images with excellent edge definition. Thermal printers are engineered to print within tight tolerances and to produce the exact bar widths that successful bar code printing and scanning require. Each technology can produce one- and two-dimensional bar code symbologies, graphics and text at the same print resolutions and speeds. Better Label has both.

Q. What is the difference Direct Thermal and Thermal Transfer Printing?

A. There are two thermal printing methods: direct thermal and thermal transfer. Each method uses a thermal printhead that applies heat to the surface being marked. Thermal transfer printing uses a heated ribbon to produce durable, long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials. No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed material. Direct thermal media is more sensitive to light, heat and abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material.
