Labeling your joint tubes: Manual application or Automated Application. Which is better?

Labeling your joint tubes: Manual application or Automated Application. Which is better?

Marijuana businesses constantly seek new and unique techniques to market their brand differently. One simple way to do so is by using custom stickers on their packaging. Not only do custom stickers leave an imprint on the customer’s mind, they also give the product an appealing look. However, to use this marketing technique, it is important to understand the procedure of creating a labeled packaging for your product. 

Many marijuana businesses apply stickers on their product’s packaging by hand. Some prefer an automated procedure for the same. So which process is better, and affordable?

Let’s have a look. 

Manual Sticker Application vs Automated Sticker Application

Application of stickers in bulk, by hand requires a considerable amount of manual labor. More the labor, more the money spent on sticker application. Also, with manual labor, there is an increased risk of faulty application. For example, the sticker might not align with the product packaging or there might be some residue of glue on a corner of the sticker. The biggest drawback of manual application is that it can take a lot of time and is definitely not suitable for bulk quantities. 

Automated application on the other hand is done with high-quality precision, hence every unit is labeled neatly and uniformly. It is much faster than manual application and thus, is more cost effective too.

    Why Choose MJ Wholesale for label application?


  • More efficient and affordable

  • Labor is getting increasingly expensive and it is difficult to control the amount of time it takes to complete bulk tasks. But when you use MJ Wholesale’s services for sticker application you don’t have to worry. Not only is the job done faster, it is more economical too. How, you ask?

  • Cleaner, Neater Process and Outcome

  • If you have attempted application of stickers by hand, you must already know the amount of mess it can create. Sometimes, one can also see visible fingerprints around the sticker label, giving the product a messy look. If the sticker labels are not applied carefully, the ink on the labels may get smeared, especially if the labels are freshly printed; making the labels illegible and losing their purpose. 

    In addition to all of these issues, the overall look of your product will appear clumsy and non-presentable. With our automated label applicator, you can be assured of a 100% hygienic process with minimal manual interference. Gloves are utilized even for simple tasks such as loading and unloading, to ensure a professional procedure that does not leave any fingerprints or residue. Plus, all the recommended safety and hygiene instructions are followed during the process. 

  • Error Free Label Application

  • Manual application of labels is always tricky because it depends on the perception of the person, stability and strength of their hands, focus and speed. Sometimes, the label can look misaligned even though they might think they applied it straight. If done hastily, the labels would be applied upside down or loosely, resulting in them peeling off even before reaching the customer. Hiring someone for a round of supervision will not only cost more time, but also money. And also result in a big batch of wrongly labeled tubes! 

    With MJ Wholesale’s automated label applicator, the alignment is always perfect and the application is always smooth. You can avoid crooked, slanted and misaligned labels when you outsource the job to us.

  • Minimal Wastage

  • Manual handling of objects can lead to breakage. Especially, if handled in haste, you could end up with more broken and cracked tubes than properly labeled ones. However, when you utilize our service of automated label application, you will see that there is hardly any wastage. Not only does this save the overall cost, and effort of reordering tubes, but also the time required for the entire process.
