Hire a Professional Printing Company or Print Labels In-house

Many new and growing manufacturing companies that need labels for their products face the question of whether to hire a label printing company or print them in-house using a printer.

We will try to help you by listing the advantages and disadvantages in both cases.


Advantages and disadvantages of hiring a professional label printing company:



  • Higher quality of materials and printing;
  • More opportunities for printing technologies, effects, shapes, etc .;
  • Ability to produce more complex and non-standard labels - multilayer, scratch off, selective varnish, gold and silver;
  • No need to invest in specialized software (for example for printing serial numbers);
  • Higher profitability for larger quantities;
  • Fewer staff;
  • Higher control over debugging;
  • Expert opinion and guidance;



  • Longer delivery times;
  • Less control over the process on your part


Advantages and disadvantages of purchasing a label printer to print labels in-house:



  • Lower costs for small batches;
  • More control over the printing process;
  • Greater flexibility when printing labels when needed;
  • Independence;




  • Lower or incompatible print quality;
  • Limited materials and options that are compatible with your printer;
  • Higher probability of errors;
  • Desktop printers can not print with white ink, which is often used as a base for printing on transparent materials;
  • Creating waterproof or weather-resistant labels requires special materials;
  • Coating or laminate can not be applied when printing with a label printer;




If your label design is simpler and you do not need a lot of labels, then printing your labels in-house is certainly a good option, but for more complex labels and larger quantities, outsourcing your label printing will help your product look better.
