Industry: Coffee Location: USA
We have a large variety of flavors, and are adding new products every month. Outsourcing label printing was beginning to be a burden. In addition to managing the purchasing and inventory of different labels for all of our flavors, there were set up fees, shortages and delays. … The Afinia L801 Colour Label Printer simplified that process. Now we print what we need, just in time for shipment.“
A coffee roaster/retailer needed the ability to produce batches of labels for several seasonal blends of its flagship brand, but also needed to private label coffees offered through distribution. In order to meet these requirements, the coffee roaster needed to purchase a digital label printer.
- Eliminate printed-label inventory
- Print 4,000 – 5,000 full-colour labels per day, on demand
- Save at least a 20% (as compared to the cost of outsourced labels)
