Why to Choose Miles Data for Your Zebra Certified Supplies
Selecting the right printer supplies can have a dramatic impact on your printing and labeling operations. Print supplies can affect label quality, compliance, the lifespan of your printhead, printer efficiency, maintenance requirements, and other factors that mean the difference between reliable printing or costly downtime. In order to meet the unique needs of your specific applications, here are 6 reasons to choose Zebra Certified Supplies from Miles Data to ensure consistent quality, exceptional service, and a higher return on investment.
1. Control Over What Materials Get Sold
Zebra certified supplies are designed to provide optimal printer performance. At Zebra, an experience research and development (R&D) team is dedicated to ensuring the right supplies and materials are matched to the printers to ensure this performance. Unlike other manufacturers, Zebra works closely with customers to determine if the labeling materials they want to work with can be successfully thermal coated, and if not, what other options are available that can lead to a successful application.
2. Consistently Outstanding Quality
That R&D effort provides consistently outstanding quality. With Zebra Certified Supplies, customers can be sure that the raw materials used for the supplies have not been altered or substituted. Third-party or off-brand suppliers frequently substitute these materials, leading to inconsistent results.
3. Free Printhead Replacements and Custom Media Dies
Another advantage to using Zebra Certified Supplies is that doing so can save a significant amount of post-purchase expenses. Media and supplies can affect the life of the printhead, the printer, and the total cost of ownership of the device. For customers who exclusively use Zebra-certified media and ribbons, the company will replace worn printheads for free.
The same holds true for media dies. By purchasing Zebra-certified custom label, tags, and wristbands through Miles Data, customers can receive free dies from Zebra. This benefit can add substantial cost-savings for your operation—anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars to upwards of $2,000, depending on the complexity of your label dimensions.
4. Multiple Locations to Meet Demands of High-Volume Labeling
Zebra also guarantees timely delivery of a wide variety of supplies anywhere in the country. Running out of labels can be expensive—in some cases, a label shortage can result in shipping or manufacturing line being shut down. This costly downtime can lead to customer compliance problems or lost sales. Zebra operates five production plants that ship within the U.S., providing the size, scale and infrastructure to meet the needs of high-volume labeling operations quickly and effectively.
5. Largest Offering of In-Stock Supplies
Zebra also has the largest offering of in-stock supplies in the industry. Zebra offers more than 800 ZipShip items that are in stock for rapid delivery. Combined with Miles Data’s own on-hand inventory of Zebra supplies, that means that customers can be confident that even large quantities of media can be quoted and shipped almost immediately.
6. Exceptional Service from Miles Data—a Zebra Advanced Supply Specialist
Miles Data is also a Zebra Technologies Premier Partner and Supplies Advanced Specialist—our team has broad experience in selecting the right solution for every type of industrial printing application. You don’t have to be a thermal materials expert to choose the right labels; Miles Data can recommend the best solutions for you based on your own application specifications.
