Everyone enjoys being organized. They may not admit it, and their ideas of organization may seem strange to others, but if you press enough, most people will tell you they enjoy knowing where things are. And besides, a certain degree of organization is required in most office jobs. However, just because someone enjoys being organized, doesn't necessarily mean they enjoy organizing.
Fortunately, organization doesn't need to be that way. There are different systems for getting organized and even more ways of implementing those systems – some are easier, some are more work than they're worth. However, one tool that can work very well – and is a lot more fun than trying to clean your desk – is a label printer.
Most people are familiar with the old handheld label makers, whether those really old manually-powered ones, or one of the newer electronic ones. But those all had problems. The manual ones were tedious – and often painful -- to use. The electronic ones, though more functional, were in most cases still a practice in tedium. Not to mention, if you're looking to encourage an entire office to get organized, buying every employee a handheld label printer adds up quickly, and will likely end up just being yet another device that gets stored away.
All this can be avoided though with a color label printer.
You can set up it just like any other printer, and it will allow the creation of full color labels made to your specification. With a fraction of the time, effort, and cost involved with handheld label makers. They will also look a lot more attractive than a small strip of purple or red tape with white lettering on it.
Just like the office printer, anyone can use the color label printer to create what they need, the way they need it. And if you already use a labeling system maybe you keep around pre-printed labels for specific tasks or products. A label printer is actually even more helpful in this situation. You already have your system of organization in place, but now you don't need to worry about losing pre-printed labels, or being left with stacks and stacks of unused ones when they become obsolete.
With a color label printer you can print out exactly as many labels as you need, whenever you need them. Only need one? Not a problem in this case. And you won't be stuck with one design either. If you decide you want to try something different, it's a simple matter to make a different design the next time you print a few labels.
So, if you're looking to get organized, a label printer could very well be the best decision.
