Barcode labeling is essential to the retail industry. It enables them to streamline inventory tracking, pricing, shelf stocking and check-out times. A ribbon with good durability is required for applications of this nature. Smart labels combine both RFID and barcode technologies into one label. While both RFID and barcodes provide the same tracking abilities, smart labels are widely becoming the best solution for integrating RFID technology into retail anti-theft and security applications. The barcodes provide a human readable component that is still necessary in supply chain management.

DNP's Wax for Sewing Contractors
Sewing contractors and manufacturers mass-produce sewn products for many retail industries like apparel, sporting goods, medical supplies, and other textiles. They are tasked with the process of industrial sewing to fulfill large-scale orders efficiently with next to zero defects while meeting strict industry standards.
Quality control is extremely important to provide fast turnarounds with little room for error. To aid in the manufacturing process, sewing ticket tags are applied to bundles of materials describing the operation to be done, the quantity in the bundle, and the pay per bundle/operation. This detailed information about each job must be highly legible and accurate.
DNP’s TR4085plus® Premium Resin-Enhanced Wax thermal transfer ribbons produce dark, clearly defined, abrasion-resistant barcodes. When the distributor for a large textile manufacturer approached DNP with a request for Zebra printer ribbons, we knew their paper tags would require a durable TTR solution. TR4085plus ensured their sewing tickets would remain legible throughout each step of the manufacturing process.
