The Story
All Signs Point To P-touch To Provide Long-Lasting Labels For Tracking Parts In Harsh Environments

Alto Sign, Inc. uses the P-touch electronic labeling system to easily track the parts of their outdoor signs through their assembly process. By using the P-touch laminated tape, the labels on their outdoor signage have what it takes to stand up to the weather and the elements.
Challenge
Alto Sign's products have many components to manufacture and assemble. It is necessary to have our components tracked through the assembly process. We are also required to have visible manufacturing labels denoting the amps and dates of manufacture for our components. Our parts were previously marked by hand, which led to unreadable and unreliable labels. This would lead to mistakes because the writing couldn't be read, or it would wipe off. Most of our signs are hung outside and are thus subject to the weather and the elements.
P-touch Solution
At Alto Sign we use the P-touch labeling system to label and easily track parts through their assembly process. P-touch labelers eliminate the need for us to mark labels by hand by providing consistently easy-to-read labels. The labels look more professional and they will not age or fade with time. We switched to the P-touch labels because they looked more professional and last up to the elements. P-touch laminated tape provides the necessary toughness and long-lasting durability that Alto Sign needs for our outdoor signage.
Results
By using the P-touch labeling system throughout our assembly and manufacturing processes, we now have a way to label and track our components that will stand up to the rigors of the weather and the elements, as well as give them a consistent and professional appearance. Thank you. we love our P-touch labeler.
