West Warwick, RI (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
QuickLabel Systems, a brand of Astro-Med, Inc., announces the introduction of the Plexo! duo 453, a label printer that can simultaneously print on both sides of a label or tag.
The Plexo! duo double-sided label printer can print in any single color on the top side of a label or tag, and in any second color on the bottom side of the label or tag, using rolls of thermal transfer ribbon ink. The printer was designed for use in printing double-sided care labels and tags for the apparel and textile industries, and for printing double-sided labels for cables and wire markers.
“The Plexo! duo is the modular, easy-to-use label printer that apparel label service bureaus have been asking us for,” said Eric Pizzuti, Vice President of QuickLabel Systems. “It’s also the perfect label printing hardware for our line of colored thermal transfer ribbons developed to withstand washing and drycleaning.”
Pizzuti added, “Printing on both the front and back of a label satisfies marketing demands
for logo printing on care labels and practical, regulatory demands for printing care label symbols and care instructions. Printing on both sides of the label also provides the additional space needed to print labels in more than one language.”
The Plexo! duo 453 double-sided label printer uses thermal transfer technology, printing labels with two rolls of black or colored thermal transfer ribbon inks. The Plexo! duo prints labels up to 4 inches (106mm) wide, in 300 dpi resolution with user-selectable print speeds from 1 ips to 5 ips (25mm/s - 127mm/s), according to the Company.
