Happy New Year blog readers! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and a great start to the new year. We are looking forward to bringing you another year full of labeling and packaging insights and information.

 

Label Tips

Label Art Tip: Research Shows Using Text, Color Makes Food Labels Easier to Understand http://ow.ly/gC5SK

Nutrition labels provide lots of information, but how useful is that information if the consumer doesn't understand it? This article explains how colors, rather than just numbers, can be more useful for the consumer. The study also suggests labeling nutrition information on the front of the package.

Would you prefer a color label system for food?

RFID Wristbands

RFID wristbands enhance the Disney experience for visitors http://ow.ly/gBThX

We've seen RFID technology to track inventory and even connect goers to social media. Disney has found a way to incorporate RFID wristbands into the Disney World experience to help the customer and also increase sales.

This sounds like a great way for the park to eliminate long lines and build engagement with their visitors. The MagicBands work as a room key, park ticket FastPass and credit card.

If you're interested in using RFID in your business, talk to a Weber Label Expert. Contact a labeling expert from Weber.

Today there are so many ways you can communicate with a customer but one way remains the most powerful: The face-to-face meeting.
