Sharp Mill Designs a New Custom Label for FedEx!
An operations manager for FedEx Express that works in the Chicago area recently reached out to Sharp Mill Graphics regarding an challenge he was facing with shipping hazardous products.
When a FedEx customer wants to ship out dangerous goods or hazardous materials, there are certain procedures FedEx employees must take and paperwork they are required to fill out before it can be approved for delivery. Before the hazardous materials get hoisted onto a delivery truck, the employee loading the truck is supposed to pull the DG (Dangerous Goods) paperwork as part of procedure.
The operations manager’s issue was that often times, the vehicle loader would forget to pull the DG papers. The solution that he was seeking was a custom label that is designed to grab the vehicle loader’s attention.
In his search for a company that could create a custom label designed to his specifications, he came across Sharp Mill Graphics and our decal/label offerings! Sharp Mill Graphics helped him find the perfect solution to his problem.
We worked with him every step of the way to ensure we were designing and manufacturing a label that was exactly what he was looking for- a label that was easily removable, inexpensive, perforated for easy tear off and linerless (no paper backing). We designed artwork for the label and worked to get it approved by the operations manager. We also sent them samples of the label so they could test it before making their purchase.
Eventually, we finalized the product and shipped thousands of labels in rolls of 500 and they were 100 percent satisfied with the results!
They found our linerless labels to be essential as they make for easy application, sticking directly to surfaces and are cost-effective. For companies small and large who are seeking more effective labeling solutions, who knows… Sharp Mill Graphics could be the answer to your problem too!
