Many small producers and craftspeople do not merely sell a product. They offer their customers a share in their pride and self-definition in the form of their honey jars, wooden chairs or roasted coffee.
As a logical consequence, they want to mark their products with their logos permanently and in high quality. A lot of legally mandatory and voluntary information is to be added to packaging materials as well today, ranging from the best-before date, to indication of the wood origin, to the ever-present CE mark.
The high-performance and flexible mobile inkjet printers of the REINER jetStamp® product family provide perfect marking solutions for such small series and special items. They not only position the logo perfectly in the print area, but allow the user to add further symbols, seals and test marks. EAN/GTIN barcodes, dates and sequential numbers can be added as well. Pushing a single button is all it takes to print directly on many different materials.
Simply place the device against the glass, the wooden panel or the outer packaging, and let your handy inkjet printer, such as the portable inkjet jetStamp® 1025, the mobile inkjet printer jetStamp® graphic 970 or the handy inkjet printer REINER® 940, apply the desired mark.
The highest demands to information on packaging and product can be found in the following industries:
• Pharmaceuticals, medicine
• Consumer goods
• Electrical devices, electronics
• Consumables, packaging materials
• Devices, tools, ironmongery
• Spare parts
Pictures and texts must be printed onto the product or packaging in high and permanent quality, no matter if they are legally mandatory information or voluntary marks and self-declarations. The REINER® marking devices perform this task outstandingly in many forms of goods marking.

The manufacturer's information on products usually differ by industry and type of product. Best-before dates and identity marks of the producer may belong on every milk package but are not found on t-shirts. Vice versa, as an electronic device, a hairdryer can have a GS sign, while the same has no place on a can of tuna.
In addition to this mandatory information on packaging, many symbols for voluntary goods marking have developed in the industry. They range from the "Tidyman" to various organic seals.

• e.g. based on the same raw material delivery,
• produced by the same employees within one work shift,
• produced on the same machines, or
• sharing another relevant production feature.
For medicines, this designation is firmly specified as "Ch.-B." (for "Chargen-Bezeichnung"; lot designation) by §10 of the Medicines Law in Germany.
Every LOT number or "Ch.-B." must be clearly legible and identifiable. It can be printed onto the product packaging or directly onto the product.
