5 Reasons to Print Your Own Signs and Labels

Whether you’re a warehouse manager, facilities manager, or jobsite coordinator, you understand the importance of a safe and efficient workplace. You’re responsible for making sure that all operations are running smoothly, efficiently, and on budget. That’s no easy task, so it’s important to set yourself up for success as often as possible. 

In order to keep your warehouse, facility or jobsite compliant with safety regulations, you’ll need a variety of safety signs, tags and markers. Everything from fire extinguishers and exits to first aid kit locations must be properly marked so that employees and visitors can easily locate and use them in the event of an emergency. You will also need proper signage to indicate workplace hazards, the need for personal protective equipment (PPE), and what people should and should not do in your facility. 

In the long run, having your own printer for signs and labels can save you time and money in a variety of ways. It can lower overall signage costs, improve efficiency, and make your workplace safer for visitors and employees alike. Plus, a printer is a one-time investment that’s easy to use for years to come.

Helps Control Signage Costs

Your facility or jobsite needs signs for a variety of reasons. Whether you need to mark an uneven floor, show the way to the nearest fire exit, or display the location of different items in your inventory. It can be expensive ordering all the necessary signs, especially if you have to order them from many different manufacturers and pay shipping costs over and over again. 

When you have your own printer and a variety of vinyl sizes and colors, you won’t need to purchase anything else to create the safe and efficient environment you and your employees deserve.

Improves Your Efficiency

You have plenty of work to do without adding on the responsibility of finding and buying the right safety signs and labels for your workplace. Instead of adding shopping for signs to your list of things to do, you can print your own as soon as you need it. Besides, by the time you find the right sign, order it, and wait for it to arrive, someone could get hurt or an accident could happen due to the lack of signage. 

Printing your own labels can also help you keep your warehouse or storage facility clean and organized. When everyone knows where things should be stored, you’ll reduce time wasted searching for misplaced items.

When you have your own industrial vinyl printer, you can create signs and labels of the highest quality as soon as you need them. No orders, no waiting.

Improves Workplace Safety

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were 5,333 fatal workplace-related injuries in the United States in 2019. Many of these were due to falls, slips, and trips, fires, or exposure to harmful chemicals. While not all accidents are avoidable, the more awareness you can bring to potential hazards, the better it is for you and your employees. 

OSHA requirements state that you must have proper signage to keep employees and visitors safe while they’re on your premises. From fire exits and do not enter signs to chemical hazards and slippery floor signs, you’ve got to make sure every potential hazard is properly labeled. 

It’s important to stay on top of your signage as things change in your facility, and it takes a lot of careful planning when you have to order signs ahead of time. If you can’t create signs as needs come up, you may be leaving your employees unprotected. If someone is injured due to lack of signage, you could face serious consequences.

One-Time Investment

Once you purchase an industrial vinyl printer for your business, it will pay for itself over and over again in time saved and safety gained. Instead of ordering new signs constantly, or worse, going without signs you really should have, you’ll already have everything you need to print them on demand. 

By buying a few different types of printing media at the same time, you can get a variety of signs, labels, and stickers whenever you need them.

Easy to Use

Industrial vinyl printers are extremely easy to use. There’s no tricky software to learn, and you don’t need any design skills either. If you’re using a VnM SignMaker by Cobra Systems, there are plenty of video tutorials on our website to make the process even easier for you.
