We can print the UL labels our customers want when they need them, whether their labels require the UL Listed Mark, the UL Classification mark, or any other UL mark.
West Warwick, RI (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
QuickLabel Systems, a brand of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), announces it is now authorized to print the UL Mark on custom-printed labels. Special authorization from Underwriter’s Laboratory is required before a label printing company is permitted to reproduce the UL logo for a customer.
“Many of our customers have obtained UL recognition for their products, and we are pleased to be able to print the UL mark on their custom labels,” said Albie Ondis, Plant Manager for QuickLabel Systems. “We can print the UL labels our customers want when they need them, whether their labels require the UL Listed Mark, the UL Classification mark, or any other UL mark.”
This news is especially relevant to any company that buys custom-printed labels from QuickLabel’s QuickPrint™ digital label printing service or QuickLabel’s QuickFlex™ flexographic label printing service.
Labels printed with the UL mark may only be used on products which have been certified by Underwriter’s Laboratory. The presence of a UL mark on a label indicates that Underwriter’s Laboratory has tested and evaluated representative samples of that product and determined that they meet UL requirements. The only way to be sure that a product meets the UL standards is to find the UL mark on the label.
QuickLabel’s quick turnaround QuickPrint digital label printing service is ideal for short-run quantities of custom printed labels (500 - 15,000 labels), especially where variable information printing is needed. Any digital labels purchased from QuickPrint are always printed by QuickLabel® brand digital color label printers and barcode printers.
QuickLabel’s QuickFlex service is a flexographic custom label printing service, ideal for longer runs of labels (10,000 labels or more), for labels that require special finishing, and for precise label color matching. QuickFlex labels are printed using on Mark Andy® flexographic label presses.
A UL label may be placed on the product itself in some cases, and on the product packaging in others. Underwriter’s Laboratory was founded over 100 years ago by William Merrill, and has adhered to a high standard of scientific testing ever since, ensuring that UL is a respected mark of quality.
