LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – March 2, 2023 – Epson today announced it will be showcasing its industry leading ColorWorks® on-demand color labeling solutions at Natural Products Expo West from March 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Hall B, booth #2088. Booth visitors will learn more about affordably printing high-definition color labels in-house, and the benefits of avoiding pre-printed label pitfalls such as long lead times, minimum order quantities and rising costs.
“The significant rise in costs and lead times for pre-printed labels over the last few years have prompted businesses that produce low to moderate volume of SKUs to search for alternative solutions,” said Mark Middendorf, product manager, Label Printers, Epson America, Inc. “Epson ColorWorks printers are ideal solutions to help combat the high costs, risks and inventory challenges associated with pre-printed labels. On demand color label solutions can help businesses to maximize brand appeal while reducing operating cost and complexity, accelerating time to market, and more quickly reacting to product, certification or market driven changes.”
Epson will show live demos of various types of labels printing on-demand and how the printers can be integrated with the LabelMill applicator and Ishida weigh scale for a streamlined workflow. Epson ColorWorks solutions on display will include:
