I own a candle business and it really has been taking off.
One thing is that I am getting more online orders than in store.
I used to take an old box I found lying around the house, hand wrote a label and then sent it out. There are too many orders to do the label making by hand. I found online a Gerber Edge FX that does print out the labels. The Gerber printer can sit right on my desk and print whatever I type in the system. What is really nice is now I have been working on a label for my candles. I want to put a printed label with my name, phone number and product information on the candle. Then the shipped box has a label on it. The Gerber pinter has been working out really well. The issue is constantly changing what to type in. So what I have been doing is making my at home digital printer do the shipping address. I then put that on the box with tape and the Gerber printer does the candle label and a product label on the box. That way the information stays the same no matter what the order is. That printing process is so much easier and more professional. The colors are bright, easy to read and sticks onto my product perfect. I need to get a better way to make the shipping information look better. It needs to be an easier method of changing information to be printed on a box. I wonder if a bigger Gerber product would do it.
