    Bespoke Labels

    Forms Plus have a wealth of knowledge about all types of labels. We have been supplying these to businesses for over 35 years

    Shipping Labels are affixed to items being despatched. Its primary function is to provide all the necessary information to all parties involved in the logistics supply chain to allow them to perform their shipping, handling and delivering of the product in the most timely and efficient way.

    These labels are extremely easy to use. Ecommerce companies use these types of labels to despatch their goods via many different courier networks.

    The Shipping Labels will contain the customers address and contact name as a minimum, quite often extra information is also displayed such as the customer order number and specific delivery instructions. Each label will also have a returns address for the parcels that do not reach their end destination.
    Many of these labels will also contain a very critical barcode.

    A barcode is a square or rectangular image consisting of a series of parallel black lines and white spaces of varying widths that can be read by a scanner. Barcodes are applied to products as a means of quick identification. They are used in retail stores as part of the purchase process, in warehouses to track inventory, and Shipping Labels for the couriers to scan the goods in and out of their operating programmes.
    It is critical to all ecommerce businesses that this relatively simple consumable item performs, if there is a failure in the performance of the product it can be very expensive to the ecommerce business, in lost goods if the labels peel off or do not retain the delivery information.
