We're really excited about this new system.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
At some stage in the life of a business, almost every industry will require stickers or labels of some sort to promote, brand or advertise their product or service. From drink labels to machine safety warnings, barcodes to promotional products - adhesive labels are everywhere you look. If you've ever needed a printing quote for your business, you'll know that it can take days or even weeks to get a quote from a supplier. Barney's Labels is a printing service, based in Australia, that recognises that the world we live in is fast-paced and relies on instant gratification.
Garry Barnett, Director of Barney's Labels, has been obsessed with stickers labels since he was a young boy. His story, from humble beginnings to now competing with industry leaders, is as compelling as his approach to label printing and customer service. Being at the forefront of printing innovation has always been one of Barney's Labels' strong points and this July (2011) Barney's is pushing the boundaries once again.
In trying to appeal to the modern market and urgent print demands, Barney's Labels has developed a sophisticated Quote Calculator which they've embedded right on their homepage. What sets it apart from most other Quote Calculators is that it's instant. The customer simply enters four variables: height, width, quantity and postcode. In under a few seconds, the customer is provided with a quoted price for their print job, which includes GST and free shipping to absolutely anywhere in Australia.
"The best feature of this quoting tool is that it's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customers don't have to wait to be contacted by a staff member. They just enter the four variables and there it is. You can't beat that," says Garry.
More often than not, businesses need a print job completed as soon as humanly possible. A percentage of this time is wasted on waiting for a printer to return a call with their prospective quote. In the business world, time is as good as money, so nobody wants to waste it. Quote calculators have been used in several different industries for years and even in the printing industry. However, they lack one major point of difference as Garry Barnett describes below.
"There's other instant quote calculators out there, but most, if not all, are digital platforms. What sets us apart is our Flexographic Printing process, which provides higher quality printing than digital platforms and if the print quantity is medium to high volume, then Flexographic Printing actually becomes more cost effective for the customer. It's a win win situation," says Garry.
All of the print jobs quoted on Barney's Quote Calculator are printed on rolls, with full CMYK colour, protective coatings such as varnish or laminate and can be up to approximately 380mm in diameter. The customer can request a quote from anywhere between 1,000 to 50,000 labels/stickers.
Garry says, "We're really excited about this new system. There's nobody out there doing this with Flexographic and for such competitive prices. Just give it a go and see how easy it is. It's instant and there's no obligation".
Barney's Quote Calculator is only the first stage of this groundbreaking system. Over the next 4 to 5 weeks, there will be a significant expansion of features that will really put Barney's Labels at the forefront when it comes to meeting customer's needs in the print industry. "I can't say too much at this stage, but let's just say it reminds me what I love about customer service. My father was always unmatched in his approach to customer service and all I'm doing is bringing that same level of service into the 21st Century. I really can't wait for people to start using our new system," says Garry.
Apart from simply offering this system to small businesses and everyday consumers, Barney's Labels is also targeting Trade Label Suppliers. Trade Label Suppliers are companies, such as SNAP Printing, that offer a range of print services including label roll printing. What a lot of people don't know is that these companies can't actually print these kinds of jobs in-house; they have to outsource to printing experts such as Barney's Printing Melbourne.
"We're really hoping to expand into that market further. We offer Blind Shipping (unmarked shipping for suppliers) as a standard option and, when you couple this with our new Quote Calculator, we can really benefit Trade Label Suppliers through unmatched turnaround, instant quoting and overall customer satisfaction," says Garry.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Barney's Labels are the sticker printing specialists, providing total print solutions for companies and businesses both in Australia and overseas.
