Sooner Than Already There is how we like to refer to our STAT labels.

Actually, Stat, used as a directive to medical personnel during in an emergency situation, is from the Latin word statim, which means “instantly” or “immediately.” Nevs Ink brand medical alert labels are a bright fluorescent red with black imprint so that users are able to identify the urgency. Like all of our stock label products, they are shipped same or next day to assure you recieve your order when you want it - STAT !

Nev's Ink, Inc., the manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels and tapes, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary! To celebrate, Nev's hosted a dinner party for employees and their guests. With the majestic views of Old World Wisconsin as a backdrop, guests were treated to horse-drawn carriage rides, delectable hors d'oeuvres, and (to quote one guest) a spectacular main course. Gary Nevermann thanked employees and guests, as everyone toasted to the next 25 years. With moonlight and the crackling of bonfires, cocktails and smores were then enjoyed by all on an outside patio.

Please enjoy these photos from the event:

There are two types of thermal labels: thermal transfer labels and direct thermal labels. Both label types use a thermal printer that applies heat to the labels. The difference is that thermal transfer labels are printed with a ribbon. Direct thermal labels are more sensitive to heat and light, which makes a thermal transfer label a better choice for a longer lasting image.

A very easy yet effective way to determine whether your labels are direct thermal or thermal transfer is to scratch your nail across the label surface. If a mark is left, your labels are direct thermal (no ribbon needed). If no mark is left, your labels are thermal transfer.

Pharmacy auxiliary labels for drugs are used by pharmacists and pharmacy technicians as an extra means of communicating important information. Unfortunately, many people are not able to absorb all of the detailed information that a pharmacist covers when dispensing medication to a patient; thus, pharmacy auxiliary labels for drugs are utilized to reiterate this information. Examples of pharmacy auxiliary labels for drugs include Not For Injection, Dosage Strength, Keep In Refrigerator, Do Not Use After, and Keep In Refrigerator Do Not Freeze.

These facts are important for a patient to know, and fortunately enough, auxiliary labels for drugs are available for pharmacists to utilize to convey all information necessary to their patients. Pharmacy auxiliary labels for drugs can make the difference between a medication effectively treating a patient and, possibly, further harming a patient.

consecutivenumberlabelConsecutively numbered labels are just as they sound; each label has a different number from the label preceding it. Whether you need five labels to be imprinted with the same number, a prefix that changes after one thousand numbers or barcodes that represent a consecutive number when read, Nev's Ink is the best place to order numbered labels. When ordering consecutively numbered labels, it is important to know the label specifications you want the label itself to follow (length, width, material, if sheeted, how many sheets per pack, or if on a roll, how many labels per roll), the number you want the series to begin with and end with, and the number of times each single number should be repeated. If you are reordering consecutively numbered labels that you have ordered in the past, we should be able to help you determine which number you ended at with your previous order so there is no duplication.Please contact our customer service department to order or for more information at 800.638.7465.

The Nev's Ink Truck got a recent update.  We added our own personal touch by featuring some of our employees on the back of the truck, along with our brand promise: "We stand behind our labels and tapes 100%". The truck delivers directly to local healthcare facilities as well as moves inventory between warehouses.
