New Designer Tags From Horticultural Marketing And Printing Helps Retailers Promote Products

PerennialsHorticultural Marketing and Printing’s new Designer Tags, which were introduced at this year’s winter trade shows, are now available to retailers and growers nationwide.

The tags add merchandising power to plain pot stakes and strip tags.

Retailers and growers can print or hand write their logos, plant names and information on the back, and let the colorful, informative front sides attract consumers. The thermal-transfer-printable labels ensure customers get promotional messages when they look at a tag.

The fade-resistant pot stakes include tags for perennials and annuals, and can be purchased with full sun, part sun and shade descriptions. A Water Wise pot stake is also available. These 5/8- by-5-inch tags are made of 0.20 mil styrene.

The tree tag collection includes color-coded labels for fruit, shade and flowering trees. Also included are Water Wise and Christmas-themed tags. The Christmas tags work well for cut and live Christmas trees, wreaths and garland. The 1- by-9-inch tags are fade resistant with a perforated tear-off end, and made of 0.12-mil Flextherm.

All Designer Tags can be printed on Horticultural Marketing & Printing’s OnSyte XTRA 5.

Cal-Poly To Preserve Campus Agricultural Land

California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo will no longer consider development of nearly 43 acres of prime agricultural land just west of its campus core, as the university proceeds with the two-year process of updating its campus master plan. In May, the university had released an update to its Master Plan that indicated that almost all of its orchards, horticulture facilities and field sites may be repurposed for future development of university housing and other campus infrastructure. Most of the land in question is classified Class 1 farmland. The acreage is used now for lemons, grapevines, mandarin oranges, a deciduous orchard and silage for the university’s livestock. The proposed changes would have directly affected the current orchard plantings and other long term plans for the department, according to a letter from Scott Steinmaus, the horticulture and crop science department head. Steinmaus encouraged industry members to submit their comments to the university. An […]

The Continuing Evolution Of Retail

Technology will rapidly transform how retailers engage with their customers, reverberating through everything from the daily process of running a business to plant tags, containers, videos and apps. Retailers will find it less difficult to get out of the office and back into the business of working with plants and people. Improved Point-Of-Sale (POS) Mobile POS systems will soon replace the traditional checkout as smartphones and tablets make it possible for retailers to perform on-the-spot transactions anywhere they have an internet connection. Retailers will find it simpler to keep track of customers’ buying preferences and manage inventory in real time. It will be harder for thieves to access unauthorized funds in the future, thanks to a new security chip placed in credit cards that requires a pin number before completing any transaction. The introduction of mobile wallet technology will also help accelerate customer engagement using interactive coupons, geofencing enhancements and […]
