Label Resources, a Canada-based label printer converter in British Columbia, has installed a new Dominio N610i 7-color digital inkjet press, and in its first full month, has experienced a 40 percent growth in new sales and production.
In parallel with Label Resources moving to a brand-new facility in summer 2018, the company purchased the Domino N610i.
‘The entire implementation process from Domino, was really made easy,' said Label Resources president Jerry Marincelj. 'Not just for myself but, more importantly, for my operators. They describe running the Domino like playing video games. In fact, I am wondering, maybe I should charge them to work here.’
Label Resources is a premium, quality-driven, high-capacity label printing company with full-color flexographic and digital printing capabilities. Since 1994 it has provided state-of-the-art label printing services to their customers, and their experienced team works hard to make sure that no matter how big or small the print run, quality and service are never sacrificed.
‘I started the company out of my garage 24 years ago. We recently moved from our old facility in Surrey, to a brand-new facility here in Langley, running full color labels in a brand new state-of-the-art facility, including having a clean room, and a comfortable work environment.’
Located in Greater Vancouver, Label Resources’ customers can be found across Canada and the US and come from many industries including, but not limited to: nutraceuticals, food and beverage, liquor, personal care, industrial applications and pharmaceuticals.
Marincelj explained the immediate, positive impact the Domino N610i has made on his business.
‘In order to keep up with customers’ demands, we recently acquired a brand-new Domino N610i 7-color digital press. It is capable of achieving over 90 percent of the Pantone gamut. It is fast. In fact, we are currently printing at more than twice the speed of what we experienced with our previous digital press. We currently operate two shifts out of this facility. We really pretty much have to, especially on the finishing equipment to keep up with the productivity of the Domino. In our first full month of production with our new N610i 7-color, we’ve experienced an almost 40% growth in both new sales and actual production.’
Label Resources’ digital production specialist Jeff De Leon said: ‘I have a graphics background, and this is the first press that I’ve operated. This press is great in short runs and long runs. In short runs because we don’t have to change plates, we just load the file and print. And in longer runs, it runs faster. The best thing is, I’m always clean. So, if they ask me to go back and use the old press…I would prefer to use the Domino.’
Marincelj concluded: ‘Our big driver for selecting Domino was the fact that it’s a long-term, proven technology. To be able to deliver, in some cases overnight. To have the ability to react to customers’ needs more efficiently than the competitors that ultimately will help us to retain and grow our business.’
