we run low volume and do it by hand with a date gun, but there needs to be daily verification to ensure it's correct regardless of the method


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

From my experience with date guns, the main challenges are setting the correct values and ensuring the sticker stays on the product (especially when being handled). I wouldn't advise as there are lower cost printers capable of printing onto a package now.
