Top Integrated Label Uses

Integrated Labels

Integrated Labels have become more and more popular over the past 5 years. With the growth of online businesses and the ever expanding global marketplace, comes a greater need for quick and easy despatch solutions and customer friendly returns. More advanced despatch solutions are needed to allow businesses of all sizes to easily take orders and despatch their products quickly and efficiently. In 2016 it is estimated that £1.4 billion will be spent through online e-commerce websites! That is a lot of orders, a lot of packages and a lot of deliveries for the local postal and carrier services. With numbers like this, you can see why more advanced despatch solutions are being taken on board by businesses all over the world. This is where a range of integrated labels come into the play, making it much easier and faster for both online and traditional businesses to distribute their products with around the globe.
What are integrated labels?

Integrated Labels are clever forms that usually have one, (or more if needed), sticky labels which are built into a sheet of paper, (usually A4 sheets but can also be supplied in A3 and A5 sheet formats and sometime still used in continuous formats). Sometimes simply known as “shipping labels” or “invoice labels”, or “returns labels” or even “marketing labels” the integrated labels have a number of additional uses which all help streamline the despatch process. Orders can simply be printed onto the sheet of paper, allowing the warehouse pickers to put together the order. They then simply take the sticky label from the paper and adhere the label straight onto the package ready for posting. This couldn’t be easier and we can build in carrier labels including Collect + Plus , DPD, making product distribution faster for a number of businesses.

Using integrated labels for shipping labels is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the usage of this ideal despatch solution. Below we have listed our favorite 3 uses for Integrated Labels to showcase the versatility of this great printing medium….

Some of our favorite Integrated Products

Integrated Gift Message Cards

Retailers are now using integrated labels in a very clever way, to allow customer to personalise their product packaging with the addition of a personalised gift card. A customer can choose their own message to add to the card at checkout, “Happy Birthday Mum” for example. The gift card is simply integrated into picking note and printed with the order. The warehouse picker then simply attaches the integrated gift message card before sending and within seconds you have a nicely personalised package.

Integrated Butterfly Cards

The integrated butterfly cards are a great use of the integrated labels system. These are perfect for use as a membership card, loyalty card, discount card or even for a refer-a-friend card. This basically gives the receiver a personalised, sturdy, usable card that they can keep in their purse or wallet. The card comes unfolded as part of your letter. You separate your card from the letter and fold in half, automatically sticking the front and back of the card together. This gives the card extra thickness and quality feeling for the client. The cards can even have holograms on them to give that extra level of security.

Healthcare Integrated ICE Forms

Integrated labels are also used to help the healthcare industry. The integrated ICE Forms is a very popular and useful integrated label solution. Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE) Forms are used by hospitals and trusts to help speed up the gathering of patient’s data and booking in samples. These forms can contain a number of different removable integrated sticky label areas, which can be pre-printed with patients details and once removed from the carrier sheet are attached to multiple samples or information sheets. This could be anything from the patient’s appointment letter through to a blood test form. Using this integrated multi-functional document method allows us to help streamline these processes and cut down on the chances of losing samples or mismatching incorrect patients data.
