This past year has seen quite a few supplies price increases due to rising material costs. System ID was notified by Zebra that once again they must increase prices on most stock items. On May 2, 2011, Zebra barcode label and tag prices will go up 4-5% and Zebra ribbons will go up 10%.
As detailed in Zebra’s announcement letter, shortages of key supplies ingredients have driven up costs, which have had an industry wide impact. Besides Zebra, many other major supplies manufacturers have recently raised their prices as well. Even the raw material suppliers for Black Tie labels and ribbons have increased costs.
However, we will be absorbing these new costs and keeping the same low Black Tie prices. We know that many people are still very price conscious and we want you to know that Black Tie is the low-price, high-quality alternative.
We keep all the popular label and ribbon sizes in stock. You can also set up an Annual Blanket Agreement. You’ll be locked into the lower price for the term of the agreement, System ID will store your supplies for you and ship them to you as you need them, and you only pay as the supplies are shipped.
