West Warwick, RI (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
QuickLabel Systems, a brand of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), announces the introduction of the new Kiaro! color inkjet label printer, the latest and fastest label printer in the QuickLabel family of digital color label printers designed for businesses who choose to print their own labels as an alternative to purchasing pre-printed labels.
“We believe that the new Kiaro! is the most advanced, flexible and user-friendly in-house full color label printer under $10,000 on the market,” said Eric E. Pizzuti, Vice President and General Manager. “With its 1200 dpi print quality, 8 ips fast label print speed, roll-to-roll label printing, on-demand print mode, and easy-to-integrate compact size, the Kiaro! is the right choice for printing color product labels in medium-to-high quantities.”
In response to customer demand for lower-cost inkjet label printing, the high-speed Kiaro! inkjet label printer was designed with four separate, high capacity ink cartridges, one each for the cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ink colors. The Kiaro! also offers an Economy print mode which allows users to further reduce total cost-per-label by approximately 15%. “I’m proud of the lengths to which we have gone in addressing users’ priorities and preferences with this printer,” said Kevin S. Brisson, Product Manager. “With so many automated functions, the Kiaro! requires very little user intervention in order to print your own labels.”
According to the Company, users in the Kiaro! beta testing program proved out the suitability of printing a variety of food labels with the Kiaro!, printing dietary supplement labels with the Kiaro!, and printing electrical and industrial labels with the Kiaro!. “Based on our feedback, the Kiaro! inkjet label printer helps users to manage label costs and to manage the availability of printed labels for diverse product lines, including printing labels for private label products and other customized products,” said Pizzuti.
The Kiaro! inkjet label printer system includes one seat of Custom QuickLabel® Omni labeling software, a printer driver for Windows® 7/Vista/XP (32 and 64 bit), a USB 2.0 cable, a starter set of CMYK Kiaro! inks, a starter roll of labels and a one year limited warranty.
The Kiaro! joins the company’s other high-speed, high-resolution label printer, the Vivo! Touch intelligent digital color label printer, in offering an in-house label printing solution to businesses who need high productivity and high label throughput.
