should I print my own labels

The decision to print your own labels or to pay a professional to print them depends on several factors such as the quantity of labels needed, the complexity of the design, the quality required, and your budget.

If you only need a small quantity of simple labels with basic designs, it may be more cost-effective to print them yourself using a standard inkjet or laser printer. However, if you need a larger quantity of labels with complex designs or high-quality printing, it may be best buy from a professional printing company.

PDQ Labels use high-quality printing equipment, and we can offer a wider range of printing options, including special finishes like gloss or matte coatings, metallic inks, and custom die-cutting. Additionally, we can often provide assistance with the design process and offer guidance on the best materials and finishes to use for your specific needs.

Ultimately, the decision to print your own labels or hire a professional printing company will depend on your specific requirements and budget. Consider the quantity, complexity, and quality of the labels you need and compare the cost and benefits of both options before making a decision.

When requesting a quote to print your labels, there are several important questions you should ask to ensure that you receive an accurate quote and to make sure the printing company is a good fit for your needs. Here are some questions to consider:

  1. What is the cost per label or per print run? – This will give you an idea of the overall cost for your project.
  2. What is the minimum order quantity? – This will let you know if the printing company can accommodate your needs if you only need a small quantity of labels.
  3. What is the turnaround time? – This will give you an idea of how long it will take to receive your labels and if the printing company can meet your deadlines.
  4. What materials and finishes are available? – This will help you choose the right materials and finishes for your labels, based on your specific requirements.
  5. Are there any setup fees? – This will help you understand the additional costs involved in producing your labels.
  6. What is the payment process? – Ask about payment options and payment terms.
  7. Can you provide design services? – Some printing companies offer design services, so ask if they can help you with your label design.

By asking these questions, you can get a better idea of the printing company’s capabilities, the cost of the project, and whether they are a good fit for your needs.
