Wholesale and retail nurseries need to supplement their long lead times from large volume tag suppliers with instant in-house tag production to meet deadlines in the heat of shipping season.
There are two ways nurseries are producing tags in house.
1) Nurseries that use pre die cut and perforated sheets. Simple copy onto the material and tear along the perforations to have ready to use tags.
2) Nurseries that use full size sheets of synthetic paper. here the nursery lays out multiple tags on a large sheet and then cuts the tags out with some form of mechanical cutter.
Either works. It just depends on each nurseries resources, labour equipment, volume etc. Producing cost effective tags in-house
