Date Gun


Please do keep in mind; this is just one of a wide variety of options for a date label gun.  We encourage customers to call us to discuss your specific application over the phone to always ensure you get the ideal set up for your unique situation and necessary information.  This style gun is the Monarch 1131-07.  The tool is very easy to operate and durable.  The label size that is used for this tool measures about 3/4" x 1/2"; a very popular size in our industry.  Should you prefer a larger size, that is absolutely possible, we would just need to discuss a different tool.  Scroll down to view and select the label stickers that you believe best describes your date stamp.  We also have a variety of blank label colors to choose from too. 

As is the case with all handheld units within our industry, this date gun will require labels.  The user simply inserts the gun labels into the roll cavity.  This model holds 2,500 individual labels per roll before the user needs to reload the labeler.

To operate, the user simply dials in a date print using dial knobs to set each print character.  As the user clicks the hand trigger, the date code is printed and when the trigger is released, the sticker dispenses.  The sticker is then applied directly to the product using the label gun to roll it on.  A good estimation would be the ability to apply about two labels every second, so long as everything is organized.  Companies in a wide variety of industries; food production and agriculture, medical, any sort of manufacturing, and many others have found a great operational benefit with the label guns.  Small to medium size organizations can find these tools to offer the primary solution to their needs.  Large companies might not use this handheld date gun machine as their primary means of displaying information on the high volume products, but using this option can be a tremendous back-up, or the predominate solution on lower volume products.  Some of the features that make this option very appealing vs. something like a continuous ink jet printer are;

Fast Implementation

-They can ship right away and you can be using them as quickly as tomorrow morning.

Overall Cost

-Obviously this is a fairly simple solution and therefore can offer a very attractive price vs other methods.


-Using an ink jet printer requires an organized, planted infrastructure (conveyer systems...etc).  The date label guns can be taken to any part of the operation (ex. various tables, out in a field, different areas of the warehouse, or completely different buildings or locations).  The tools are lightweight and ergonomically designed. 

Speed and Reliability

-When comparing to something like hand applied and/or hand-written labels, this handheld option will be faster and have a cleaner, more reliable print on each label.
