  • Blog

At Lorpon Labels, we can first-hand attest to how bottle applicators are a great cost-saving tool that benefit not only us—the labelers, but also you—our clients. While the initial investment into a bottle labeler may seem steep, if you’re looking to invest in one yourself, it pays off (literally) in the reduction of extra labour costs over time. In addition, a labeler’s speed and accuracy are top notch, resulting in up to 1,200 bottles labeled per hour with precise placement. It can also place front and back labels on the same bottle, as well as clear labels, allowing you to achieve that “no-label” look.
