With more than 4,500 labels that serve the needs of healthcare organizations, veterinary practices, manufacturers, distributors, professional services, and more, the United Ad Label catalog is more than just a listing of products. It’s a resource that you can use as a reference tool, to compare product options, answer common questions and save money.
And maybe most importantly, during this time of supply chain uncertainty, when you select a product in the catalog, you can do so with the confidence that the item will arrive when you need it. We leverage the size and scope of our parent company, RRD, one of the world’s largest printers, to maintain material supplies and prevent stock outages.
The UAL Catalog Is The One Source For All Your Labeling Needs
From standard communication and printer labels to complex components designed for the most rigorous applications, UAL is the single source for your labeling needs. For example…
The UAL catalog includes items from admissions to discharge and everything in between and expands as the needs of healthcare organizations change. For example, COVID-19 forced workflow changes to ensure patient, staff and visitor safety. Accordingly, we added COVID testing and vaccine labels, badge labels that show vaccination status and visitor wristbands to verify proper screening protocols.
Running a veterinary clinic is no easy feat so we’ve designed the UAL catalog to simplify the process when you need to procure labels and supplies. The board & care labels, medication dispensing, surgery, treatment room labels make it easier to concentrate on what matters most - patient care. And with COVID and the increase in remote work leading to a higher level of pet ownership, increasing visits and daily and overnight care, we’ve added new care instruction labels to meet those changing needs.
Regardless of your industry, the UAL catalog contains manufacturing, warehouse and office labels ranging from shipping labels to filing labels, plus printer labels for nearly any application. Plus for 2022, we’ve added a handy thermal transfer kit which includes 1” core label rolls and perfectly matched ribbons.
High Quality Products Built For Specific Applications
Although you may consider the stock items you find in a catalog generic, that’s not how we develop our products. From material and adhesive selection through the manufacturing process, each label is designed and built for its specific end use application. This attention to detail assures reliability - no labels crinkling or falling off an IV line tube or disappearing from a warehouse rack or shipping carton.
The UAL Catalog Is A Helpful Resource
In addition to the high quality and broad product offering, the UAL catalog is a helpful resource.
- Use it as a reference tool
Example: A healthcare organization's new nursing director found they were nearly out of IV tubing labels but didn't have a part number or description of the item that they used previously. They opened the UAL catalog, turned to the nursing section and found more than 20 options. Then, they found the style that met their internal protocols, noted the item number and were able to quickly place the order on unitedadlabel.com.
- Compare product options
Example: A veterinary practice changed their physical examination process and needed a printed checklist that coincided with it. The office manager used the UAL catalog to review the options and determine if one matched. After identifying a checklist that contained the examination steps they needed, she ordered samples for the team to test. After the team used the examination record and was satisfied with the workflow, she placed an order.
- Answer common questions
Example: A business used equipment labels to communicate service and calibration information. Because the equipment was used in an environment where chemicals could come in contact with the label, it was essential that they used a material that was waterproof and resistant to solvents and cleaners. After, looking in the UAL catalog, the quality manager found detailed information about the materials used to produce specific equipment labels and were able to order the item that worked effectively and withstood the harsh treatment.
