LONG BEACH, Calif. – March 5, 2018 – Epson America, Inc. today announced SixB Labels, the premier source for labels, decals and bar codes in the Southwest, 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,” said Bakhshian. “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 an easy-to-operate, seven-color inkjet digital label press with White ink for high-quality, short-run label printing, even on clear and metallic substrates. Delivering exceptional print and color quality, as well as innovative features, the L-4033AW allows printers to expand their service offerings.
Driving the SurePress L-4033AW is the included Wasatch RIP and Print Management Software. The Wasatch SoftRIP is a sophisticated RIP solution that provides superior color management options, efficient layout features, intuitive workflow tools, variable data printing, and contour cutting, all while producing excellent quality color.
