Choose your design and materials
If you do not have a design, our experienced label specialists will guide you through the process to create a design and select materials for custom labels.
Provide your numbering sequence
We accept spreadsheet and CSV text files. If you do not have a numbering schema, we can help you design one.
Receive your labels within 1 week
Labels are typically printed & ready to ship in 3-5 business days. We carry many
different stocks and lamination films to ensure quick turnaround for your labels.
Our normal turnaround for sequentially numbered labels is less than one week. For
rush orders, we have the capability to produce and ship labels the same day.
Scanners – Portable Data Terminals
ABLT has partnered with a small number of AIDC (Automatic Identification and Data Capture) manufacturers that have demonstrated that they can deliver both quality and cost competitive data collection equipment. The two standouts in our opinion are Honeywell and Unitech.
In 2007 Honeywell purchased HHP the leader in linear and 2D handheld barcode scanners based on imaging technology. Time and again Honeywell has demonstrated superior quality with ultra fast image capture when it comes to barcode data collection.
Unitech offers a very diverse line of portable mobile computers and data collection terminals. From their straightforward HT580 with a DOS OS to the PA968II with WiFi, GPS, color camera, and color touch screen, Unitech has something to fit every need.
ABLT designs custom label blanks to your unique specifications using a wide array of poly-face stocks, papers and specialty adhesives.
All label blanks can be pre-printed with eye-catching customized logos.
ABLT’s label consultants walk you through the process of understanding where the label will be applied, to what surface, in what environment and any other conditions that will affect the label’s performance.
Variables include shape, size, material, adhesive and/or partial print for in-house serialization.
A short list of materials include:
- Metalized Poly and Paper
- Clear with Eye Marked Liner
We have carefully selected a small group of third party software vendors to represent who offer very important tools in the collection of variable data.
Bartender by Seagull Scientific
Years of printing bar codes and variable data labels have lead us to conclude that we get the cleanest reading barcodes when using Bartender label design software. Seagull designed the very first windows print driver and their print drivers are included with many of the thermal transfer printers sold today.
Bartender label design software is easy to use and can be integrated with the customers current software systems.

ABLT has been using Thermal Transfer printers in the production of numbered and barcoded labels since the mid 80’s. During this time we have developed an extensive knowledge of the printers on the market. We can provide our customers printers based on their specific needs, printing environment, and print volume.
In our manufacturing process, we currently are using printers from Datamax, Zebra, Sato, and QuickLabel Systems. We are a Datamax-O’neil partner and are resellers of Zebra and Sato.
Our experience with many of the different ribbon manufactures is that there is no substitute for consistent quality. After close to 30 years of testing thermal transfer ribbons, we have chosen to align ourselves with ITW thermal films because of their consistency of quality.
In addition, we have a group of ribbons that when combined with 3M’s TT3 labels stock are resistant to many oils, greases, solvents, and abrasion. For numerous customers, we have been able to design printing systems that allow them to print their labels in-house without the need of an overlamination film.
We keep in stock many sizes of Wax, Wax/Resin and Resin ribbon for immediate delivery. We only sell ribbon that we would use in our own production.
