3 ROI Scenarios for the L801
The Memjet-powered L801 Digital Colour Label Printer features numerous benefits, including:
- Output quality
- Low total cost of ownership.
This adds up to an accelerated ROI. Here are three ROI scenarios that L801 customers have shared with us.
ROI Scenario 1: Buying labels from a third party
A coffee roaster buys eighteen different label designs, for 1.08€/each, in quantities of 250. They order labels four times per year.
With the L801, they are able to print the same labels for a total cost of 0.11€/each.
Savings: 0.97€ per label x 250 labels x 18 label designs = 4,361€ x 4 times per year = 17,444€
Payback: Less than 6 months
ROI in first year: 116%
Note: ROI does not include the additional benefit of savings from elimination of virtually all label waste due to label changes.
ROI Scenario 2: Printing labels on an existing label printer
A specialty foods private labeler uses their existing inkjet printer to create labels for their customers. The ink cost per label is 0.16€/each. They are producing 5,000 labels per month.
With the L801, they are able to print the same labels for an ink cost of 0.03€/each.
Savings: 0.13€/per label x 5,000 labels per month = 673€/month = 8,076€/year in ink savings
Payback: 12 months
ROI in year two: 100%
ROI Scenario 3: Printing short runs* on a Flexo/Litho/Offset press
*Short run = Less than 10,000 labels
Wide-format shops are regularly faced with the dilemma of producing short label runs for important clients. Using a Flexo/Litho/Offset for this purpose is a financial loss. Memjet has created an exhaustive cost comparison for this scenario. If a client orders a run of 10,000 labels, a Flexo press can run them at a total cost of 663€. An L801 can run those same labels for a total cost of 439€, without the cost of plates.
Savings: 183.86€ for 10,000 labels x 4 runs per month = 735.43€ x 12 months = 8,825.16€.
Payback: Less than 12 months
Note: ROI does not include the additional profit additional sub-10,000 runs. The L801 can be used with Wasatch SoftRIP colour profiles to run proofs that look like they were made on other types of label printing equipment.
