SixB Labels, a supplier of labels, decals and bar codes in the southwest US, has purchased and installed its second Epson SurePress L-4033AW digital label press to meet increasing customer demands in the graphic, manufacturing, food, service, beauty and health industries.
SixB Labels purchased its second Epson digital label press for its wide range of full-color label capabilities to produce semi-gloss and BOPP labels, as well as to expand its short-run label printing offerings to customers.
‘Epson’s SurePress L-4033AW is a valuable tool for our business,’ said Fari Bakhshian, president, SixB Labels Corporation. ‘We decided to purchase a second SurePress because of its expansive label printing capabilities and how it allows us to produce smaller runs with less waste, helping us to decrease production time and reduce costs.’
SixB Labels received a Premier Print award from Printing Industries of America for labels created on the SurePress L-4033AW for Texas-based customer Central Market. The ‘best of category digital printing: tags and labels’ winner features the photographic-oriented Central Market iced tea jug labels for placement on metal tins.
‘The amount of detail on the labels printed by the SurePress was tremendous,’ Bakhshian said. ‘We printed a smaller run for Central Market and decided to submit their hibiscus mint tea labels for the award, which we were honored to receive. The hibiscus mint was also only the beginning, as the project lent itself to multiple label variations created on the SurePress – house black, mango and Texas gold iced teas – with labels including clear and colorful imagery of ingredients.’
Designed for prime label converters and commercial printers, the Epson SurePress L-4033AW is a seven-color inkjet digital label press with white ink for short-run label printing, even on clear and metallic substrates.
Driving the SurePress L-4033AW is the included Wasatch RIP and print management software.
‘We are thrilled that SixB Labels has once again chosen Epson’s SurePress to enhance its workflow and meet its label printing needs,’ said Mark Elsbernd, North American western region sales manager, Epson America. ‘Dedicated to providing customers with the most efficient and reliable printing performance, Epson’s digital label press delivers industry-leading precise quality with decreased production time, waste, and costs, making it the ideal label press for all business needs.’
