Check Out the Top Criteria to Look for When Choosing a Label Printing Partner…
Quick Turnaround Times
Is this printing service known for fast order turnaround? When it comes to custom labels, different printers may have various lead times depending on the label type. For example, some companies may require a couple weeks in advance, while others can fulfil your order in just a few business days. You also need a professional who can make quick changes and fulfil requests at a moments notice, especially when you’re under tight deadlines or if there is a last minute unforseen need.
We have a team of dedicated customer service and production specialists that can often turn around projects in just a few hours. Our ability to quickly react to our customers’ needs is one reason that we have maintained such long standing, successful relationships with our ever-growing customer base. M&R delivers high quality finished goods to our customers – on time and extremely fast!
Array of Printing Services Available
Ask the printing service about their printing capabilities. What types of printing methods do you have available? Are you knowledgeable on the latest, most innovative printing technology? When partnering with a professional, you’ll want to make sure they provide all of the services you’re interested in – not just printing. These “extras” can include label design and inventory management as well.
At M&R Label, we pride ourselves on being pioneers in the label printing industry. We provide technologically advanced and eco-friendly printing solutions, such as flexographic, digital, thermal, and variable data printing options.
Other services we offer include:
- Label design
- Label inventory management

Order Flexibility and Variety of Choices
Sometimes you may need to order a large quantity of custom labels. Other times you may need a smaller order. You’ll want to make sure the printer you work with is capable and willing to produce both large and small orders. Other important aspects to consider are the label materials and finishes you’re interested in. For example, maybe you need waterproof and oil-resistant materials. Do you prefer a clear laminate or matte finish? Ask what your options are beforehand to make sure they can deliver what you need!
Choose a professional label printer with an array of design options that best fit your brand and needs. Our motto is: the customer has, and always will, come first. We think of our customers as family and we will do everything we can to help you achieve your goals and be successful! M&R Label can print any unique font, vibrant color, or image you need – on any type of material and shape! Our team will do whatever you ask of us, not the other way around!
Reputation and Expertise
While doing research, check out each printer’s website and social media. Does their online presence suggest they are a modern company and up to date on the latest design trends? Search on their Facebook page, Yelp, and Google Business accounts to find reviews from customers. Are people generally writing positive, 5-star reviews about the services? Ask if they will show you a portfolio of client examples.

Quality Product at a Fair Price
E-commerce label design websites make it easy for business owners to upload designs and make their own graphics for labels and stickers; however, these companies make money by overcharging for the product/amount, delivery, and other hidden fees. You may think you’re saving your business money by ordering them yourself, but it could actually be hurting your finances. Before jumping online to purchase new labels, keep this in mind.
In our industry, the more labels you buy – of the same size – the cheaper they should become. As your trusted printing parter, rest assured that we will NOT overcharge you or slam you with hidden fees. M&R Label prides ourselves on offering competitive prices and fair costs. We want our customers to get the most bang for their buck. The savings can be BIG when you work with a reputable custom label printer that you can trust!
