West Warwick, RI (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
QuickLabel Systems, an Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT) business unit, has released a video interview with Doc’s Tea to document how the maker of healthy, low-sugar, bottled sweet teas, has increased its production speed, reduced its costs, and enhanced the look of their labels by using a Kiaro! label printer to print their own labels.
The new video can be viewed on the QuickLabel website, on the QuickLabel blog, and on QuickLabel’s YouTube channel at Youtube.com/QuickLabel.
Doc’s Tea is a handcrafted, small-batch beverage brewed by a family of dental health professionals dedicated to a healthy lifestyle. Recently, Dr. Ken Banks, owner of Doc’s Teas, upgraded to the Kiaro! inkjet label printer in order to increase productivity, reduce cost, and dramatically improve label quality on all of their products.
“When I first saw the Kiaro! print I was amazed,” said Dr. Ken Banks, “I was impressed with the application process of the labels with our bottles and the look of the labels.”
“We make our product on demand so that we can deliver a fresh product, not one that’s brewed, bottled and then stored,” said Dr. Ken Banks. Because Doc’s Tea doesn’t allow their teas to sit on shelves, they needed a solution that allowed them to print labels instantly, which eliminated the waiting time and inventory difficulties that come with ordering outside labels.
“The Kiaro! label printer fits in so well for us because it is allowing us to do small batches, to have high quality labels, not to have a large inventory,” says Dr. Ken Banks, “it allows us to brew on demand and to print on demand.”
“It allows us to have flexibility and to print the highest quality label we can for our product,” says Dr. Banks. When they print small batches of labels, Doc’s Tea is able to quickly ship its micro brewed tea to waiting customers who order varying flavors and quantities of bottled tea.
Label On Demand, Brew On-Demand
Chief Creative Officer, Dr. Christopher Banks, explains that because Doc’s Tea makes their teas in small batches in differing quantities, having a label printer in-house allows them to eliminate inventory costs and streamline production.
“It’s been really great as a startup company because we don’t have to spend so much money going out to the big labeling companies,” says Dr. Christopher Banks, “we can print them out as we need them and save some time and also save some money.”
