West Warwick, RI (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
QuickLabel Systems, a brand of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), announces that its customer, Dave’s Marketplace, has completed the company’s first official review of the Kiaro! inkjet label printer. Dave’s Marketplace, an independent supermarket chain with nine locations in Rhode Island, participated in the QuickLabel’s beta test site program for the new Kiaro! inkjet label printer and later decided to purchase a Kiaro! for use in printing labels for its prepared foods and fresh cut produce items.
Two days a week for six weeks, Dave’s Marketplace Graphic Designer Steve Alfaia used the Kiaro! inkjet label printer to digitally print over 10,000 custom labels for fresh cut produce, prepared meals, specialty meats, and other grocery items. “I use the Kiaro! to print a different label for each item,” said Alfaia. In total, Alfaia printed more than 100,000 custom labels with the Kiaro!.
Dave’s Marketplace saw increased sales from its custom-labeled grocery items. Alfaia explained, “You put a label on an item, it makes a difference in how it sells.”
Alfaia attributes the success of his custom label printing operation to the Kiaro!, which prints at a speed of 8 inches per second (200mm/s) at 1200 dpi. “The speed of the Kiaro! is very impressive. To be able to print labels with the kind of detail that it has, and to have that kind of speed, I would say is very impressive. I wouldn’t want to give it up.” said Alfaia.
Final production models of the Kiaro! inkjet label printer are now available from QuickLabel Systems and can be purchased for $9,995 USD from QuickLabel.com/catalog or from one of QuickLabel’s directly employed sales specialists at 877-757-7978.
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.
To see a Kiaro! inkjet label printer in person, fill-out the online form to tell QuickLabel Systems that you would like an in-person label printer demonstration. A directly-employed QuickLabel sales engineer will visit your office or factory and print your custom labels.
