Print Hardware Labels for Major Retail Stores with the Kiaro!
Hardware products sold in major retailers, like Lowes or Home Depot, demand every single label meets retail standards, exactly, every single time. With the stresses and intricacies of a fast production process, you need a label printer that creates perfect picture code labels and the best visual cue plumbing labels every time, no matter what.
When trying to meet high retail standards, any error can be a costly one, but by printing plumbing labels with the Kiaro! label printer, you’ll reduce errors and easily meet the strict retail packaging specifications.
Hear How Quick Fitting Uses the Kiaro! to Meet Retailer Specifications
Quick Fitting is an innovative manufacturer of push-connect plumbing technologies, and has been using the Kiaro! to meet all of the retail labelling standards that their customers Lowe’s, Tractor Supply and Ace Hardware exact.
Quick Fitting CEO, David Crompton states, “There are incredibly stringent retail-packaging-standards all the way from how the product is bagged, to censor codes, to the barcodes that appear on the individual bags or boxes.”
“Quick Fitting has a lot of different products, a lot of different packaging, and a lot of different features to those products,” continues Crompton, “The Kiaro! enables any company to print picture code labels for every product variation – every SKU – on an as-needed, on-demand basis.”
They’ve Eliminated Costly Labelling Errors
Printing with the Kiaro! label printer allows you to immediately correct any errors that appear on your picture code and visual cue labels. By having a Kiaro! in-house, you see the labels as they’re printed and can supervise the labelling instantly to eliminate any costly errors.
“When using the Kiaro! you get to see the labels printed right in front of you,” says Eric Sanches, Production Coordinator at Quick Fitting, “If there are any mistakes in the label design, you get to fix them, right then and there, versus receiving labels from an outside printer, and they’re all wrong and you have to wait days just to get correct ones. It cut our time by more than 80%.”
They Print Labels on Demand
To make sure they had the right labels in stock exactly when their customers wanted their orders for plumbing valves and fittings, Quick Fitting had to order out for more and more labels, until they found the Kiaro! and solved their problems.
“Customers may change an order,” explains Crompton, “they may style it differently from month to month, which meant that we were forever shifting the label demand that we currently had in stock.”
Crompton continues, “The Kiaro! gave us the ability to get exactly what we needed, to create our labels just-in-time, and it cut our cost on those labels by about 40%. We don’t build up our inventory anymore; we don’t have any dead money sitting on the shelf. It’s been absolutely phenomenal.”
They Print Practically Perfect Labels
The Kiaro! doesn’t waste a single label when starting batches. Its robust printer drivers can work with most label design software, including NiceLabel, to give you complete customization of your visual cue and picture code plumbing labels.
You can use almost any software to give your picture code labels and visual cue labels astounding resolution and clarity for every stage of shipping.
The Kiaro! prints in astonishing 1200 dpi, so whether in your warehouse or on the retail floor, your labels will always look great. Plus, the Kiaro! prints at 8 inches per second (that’s 40 feet per minute!) in label batches of any size, to ensure your customer gets exactly what they’ve ordered more quickly than ever before.
