The Motex 2612 Date Coder is a 1 line pricing gun with 9 digits allowing for dates to be displayed e.g. 01OCT2010. It uses an E4 ink roller and a 26mm x 12mm CT4 price gun label. Unlike many others it also has the pound sign (£), dollar sign ($) and Euro sign in its character set.
The Date Coder price gun starter pack contains 15,000 plain price gun labels (10 rolls), a replacement ink roller and instructions. It is preloaded with 1 roll of labels so you can use it straight out of the box.
Please use the drop-down menu to select which labels and adhesive you would like in your starter pack.
This Motex pricing gun is a great alternative to the purely numerical pricing guns as it shows the abbreviation of the month in alphabetic format.
Below is a brief description detailing the differences between Use By dates and Best Before dates:
Use By Dates
Use By dates are usually found on foods such as salads, fish, soft cheese and milk - foods that go off quickly. Use by dates refer to food safety, rather than food quality. They mean you should not consume any food or drink after the use-by date stated on the label. By eating food past this date you are putting yourself at risk of food poisoning. If you think you might not get round to eating the food before the use-by date, but don't want to waste it, check and see if it can be frozen to use at a later date.
Best Before Dates
Best Before dates are usually found on frozen, canned or dried foods that last a bit longer. Best before dates refer to food quality, rather than food safety. Food is at its best prior to the best-before date. After the best before it date the food might lose its flavour and texture and will no longer be at its best.
