Product detail: 

N-AISLE PRINTING combined with the advanced automation capabilities of DESIGN-R-LABELS brings a high level of efficiency to printing replacement shelf labels and shelf talkers, allowing retailers to increase productivity, reduce waste, and stimulate sales.

With the introduction of wearable mobile printers and handheld PDA computers, retailers finally have a solution to printing replacement tags and talkers without wasting an entire sheet of labels. However, mobile printers alone, without the proper software to drive them, have limited capabilities when it comes to graphics, fonts, sizing, and spacing. This makes duplicating labels printed with conventional laser printers virtually impossible. As a solution to this problem, many retailers resort to printing a temporary tag in the aisle and then come back later to replace it with a permanent label printed with a laser printer. This “band-aid” method not only creates a new inefficiency, but it also disrupts continuity and the overall look and feel of quality in your store. DESIGN-R-LABELS with the N-AISLE PRINTING option is the solution that retailers around the world have been seeking. No more need for the temporary “band-aid” tag!

Unlike the proprietary software that comes with mobile printers, DESIGN-R-LABELS and N-AISLE PRINTING can use any font, font size, barcode size, and formatting rules to provide a label that looks identical to labels that are printed on a laser printer. “Belt or Hip” printers print “temporary” shelf tags that require you at some point to, locate the item again and hang a permanent tag, which eliminates much of the labor savings. The tags printed with the N-Aisle Printer will have virtually the same shelf life as tags printed by your laser printer.
