Stickering is the process of applying customer-specific stickers to boxes of products. An example would be where Wal-Mart has a request for their own product codes to be applied to retail boxes prior to shipment. Stickering can be done manually or via machine, depending on the volume of product that needs to be a sticker. For high volumes, a machine called a sticker applicator can be used to apply stickers quickly and accurately.
There are many benefits to stickering products before shipment:
- First, it ensures that products are properly labeled with the correct information. This is important for both customer satisfaction and for meeting regulatory requirements.
- Additionally, stickering can help to brand products and make them more recognizable and distinctive on store shelves.
- Finally, stickering can help to protect products from damage during shipping and handling.
If you are a logistics provider that offers stickering services, it is important to have a clear understanding of your customer’s requirements. This includes the type of stickers that need to be used, the placement of the stickers on the product, and the volume of the product that needs to be stickers. By having this information, you can ensure that your stickering services are able to meet the needs of your customers.
