Griffin-Rutgers labeling and coding systems are well suited for a variety of consumer goods; items such as cosmetics and personal care items, cleaning products, DVDs and CDs, tobacco, and other retail items.
The value of a product contained inside its package may be initially based on the aesthetic appeal of its packaging as a first impression marker. When it comes to any retail product, the aesthetics certainly play a part in the marketing of those products. Regardless of the appeal of products’ packaging it will likely need to have some form of coding to track it through the supply chain – at the very least a batch code.
Accuracy and speed are crucial in all aspects of printing, labeling and coding, and many consumer goods are required to comply with state and federal regulations as well as meeting specific manufacturer and industry requirements.
As you consider the purchase, we can help you determine the best product identification (labeling and coding) system for your unique needs. Contact the professionals at Griffin-Rutgers, and we will put our experience to work to select the correct system for you.
