2. Self-aligning cartridges and high-quality labels
Time, money and paper. If the label doesn’t print correctly, you waste all three because it needs to be printed again. It doesn’t matter if you’re at the post office and the shipper tries repeatedly to scan a poorly printed label or your home office printer jams and you spend more time fixing it than producing the item you’re selling. Waste is waste – and frustrating! So, we made it super easy to align the ZSB Series printer cartridges: just drop them into the printer. Seriously, that’s it. They will straighten themselves out every time. (They really are cool!) Even better, they’re virtually unjammable. (Another win for all of you environmentally-conscious and time-constrained professionals!)
Plus, when you pair the printer with our high-quality labels, you don’t have to worry about wasting time or paper on reprints. And we offer all types of label sizes that are perfect for shipping, mailing, barcodes, name badges and more!
3. Recyclable and compostable packaging
As my colleague Jeffrey White discussed in his Earth Day 2020 blog post, there are many ways we can make shipping more sustainable. Businesses can give customers the option to have their goods delivered in a single shipment to reduce boxes and filling, or they can offer customers longer delivery times so carriers have more time to consolidate orders and send packages on the most environmentally efficient route.
Jeffrey also discussed the development of robust packaging solutions that are eco-friendly yet cost effective. This is exactly what we’re using to deliver our ZSB Series printers and supplies.
ZSB Series label cartridges come in completely recyclable packaging. The entire package (inside and outside) can be tossed in the recycling bin. Just another great way to be green!
We’re Committed – to Environmental Sustainability and to You
Sustainability is a core value of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) everywhere. It’s also important to Zebra. We’re committed to being compliant corporate citizens. And we recognize our responsibility to support the protection of the environment and seize opportunities to efficiently use resources and reduce waste.
Between Etsy, eBay, Amazon and even Instagram boutiques, e-commerce is allowing more and more people to supplement their income, fuel their passions and expand their reach through small businesses. For brick-and-mortar retailers, annual initiatives like Small Business Saturday and the pandemic rebound “Shop Local, Shop Small” campaigns are helping them achieve their goals. And we know that many service providers, including veterinarians, wellness professionals and even telcos, have launched online stores in recent years to help clients more easily acquire the goods related to their services.
While our businesses flourish, we must avoid outpacing our planet. Small business is booming. Small offices and home offices are becoming the norm (even among larger brands). And the marketplace is flooded with e-commerce entrepreneurs that are competing for customers’ loyalty. Give shoppers one more reason to choose you – sustainability.
