Variable Information is the term used to describe the item specific data that is required throughout a product's supply chain and most conspicuously, at point of sale.

Typical examples are barcode, price, size, style and colour.

As a product works it's way through the supply chain, this information is used for a variety of purposes, including inventory control, warehousing and distribution, and retail sales management.


What do we do?

We provide practical solutions that translate the item specific variable information from your internal ERP system onto product labels and tags.

What are the media options?

We offer a full range of label and tag media options and work with you to achieve what works best for your brand and your budget. The three most common options are:

Integrated brand and variable information tags

The most popular solution is to print your variable information directly onto branded swing tags. This solution delivers a clean, integrated look, with the added bonus of eliminating the cost of printing and applying a secondary label.

Price tickets ('kimbles')

Price tickets are a dedicated tag carrying your variable information. Although they can carry pre-printed brand imagery, they are generally a plain tag.  'Kimbles', as they are often called, usually incorporate one or more tear off tabs, and so are particularly popular where multiple country pricing is displayed.

Self adhesive labels

In this solution the variable information is printed onto plain or pre-printed self-adhesive labels, which are attached to your product tags at point of production.

How we do it?

The information you maintain on your products is supplied to us directly from your ERP system each time you need to place an order for labels or tags. We help you to set his process up.
