iSys Label Announces Availability of White Toner

October, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada –iSys Label, Canadian developer and manufacturer of short to mid run digital label printers, is pleased to announce the availability of white toner for their line of label printing solutions. The developers at iSys Label have created an innovative RIP plug-in for their software that allows users to print both background white and spot color white – all in a single pass. Available October 1st, the white toner will significantly change the way graphics, labels and packaging are done today in the digital printing market space.

The ability to print using white toner opens a whole range of markets and potential applications for commercial printers and private brand owners. Ideal for printing on dark or colored substrates, transparent films, and textured stocks; the white toner makes the creative possibilities endless. Mark Hopkins, President of iSys Label, commented “we’ve been looking forward to the release of white toner for a long time. Time and time again, our customers have asked for the availability of white toner and now we can deliver.”

Using single-pass technology, labels and packaging using white toner can now be printed on demand. There is no need to invest in new equipment. Loading of the white toner is easy to do and takes a fraction of time – all that’s needed is to replace the black toner and drum cartridges with the white cartridge combination. When users want to return to the four color printing process, all that’s needed is to replace the white toner/drum combination with the original black toner/drum and resume regular printing.

“By having white toner, the market for short run digital labels greatly expands. We can now offer the EDGE 850 and APEX 1290 as a print solution for the high-end cosmetics and beverage markets, as well as for print shops looking to run decals and stickers on clear films. The opacity of the white toner is exceptionally high and we believe the addition of this consumable is going to be a game changer for the digital printing market” says Randy Rickert, Director of iSys Label.

iSys Label to Attend the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium 2014

November, 2013 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada – iSys Label, Canadian developers and manufacturers of short to mid run digital label printers, has announced they will be exhibiting in booth #2008 at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium on January 29 & 30th, 2014 in Sacramento, California. Held at the Sacramento Convention Center, iSys Label will be featuring the EDGE 850, a short to mid run digital label printing solution. Developed with the user in mind, the EDGE 850 makes in-house wine label printing easy whether you need 50 labels or 50,000 labels.

During the show, iSys Label will be demonstrating two different options for printing wine labels, each with its own benefits. The first print method is full graphic label printing with the addition of variable information, all done in a single pass. The second is signature printing, the ability to overprint wine labels previously printed by an offset or flexographic machine.

Designed for wineries with multiple SKU’s, signature printing is best explained as a two stage printing process. Stage one is printing all of the static elements of the customized label such as the brand or winery name including foil stamping and embossing. Stage two is overprinting using the EDGE 850 for the dynamic elements of the label design including variable data, images, and text. By utilizing this printing process, end users will be lowering their cost per copy and are capable of printing the exact quantities of labels they need on-demand. This ensures maximum print efficiency and minimizes inventory and spoilage of pre-printed labels not used for that year’s production.

Gulmen Engineering to Show iSys Label Products at PacPrint 2013

April, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada – Gulmen Engineering, Australian distributor of the APEX 1290 and EDGE 850, has announced they will be exhibiting in booth #3438 at the PacPrint Show from May 21-25th, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia.

"There is a major gap between smaller types of cost effective label printing equipment to the high end HP presses. The APEX 1290 and EDGE 850 by iSys Label are versatile and remain flexible when compared with other types claiming to be in the same category," said Ali Rezaki, Gulmen Engineering’s, Sales and Marketing Manager.

Randy Rickert, Director of iSys Label says "Gulmen Engineering is a very strategic partner for the iSys Label division and we’re excited to see them displaying at this show. They’re extremely knowledgeable about our short to mid run digital label print solutions and we’re confident they will have a successful show in Melbourne."

Developed for the short to mid run label production markets, the EDGE 850 and APEX 1290 can print on a variety of die-cut, kiss-cut or roll substrates. These innovative label printers are easy to operate using the quick imposition software and auto adjusting rewinder system, allowing operations to stage a job in minutes so you can say goodbye to ordering huge quantities of pre-printed labels. Designed for in-house production of labels, users will be capable of printing 2000 labels in less than 20 minutes and have the finished roll ready for immediate application.

PacPrint is one of the largest and most significant trade exhibitions for the printing and graphic technologies industry in the Southern Hemisphere. Staged every four years, PacPrint has been designed to provide the Australian, New Zealand and Pacific Rim printing and graphic arts technologies industries with a comprehensive exhibition which enables access to the newest technological advances and business solutions.
