Grace Imaging, a converter in the custom label market based in Perrysburg, OH, has installed its third Epson SurePress digital label press, expanding its label printing offerings for customers in a variety of markets, including wine and spirits, food, beauty, and more.
After working with two Epson digital label presses for five years, Grace Imaging purchased and installed the SurePress L-4533AW to keep up with demand and provide distributors, brokers and resellers with high-quality, custom labels, including foil stamping and embossing, using a variety of media.
“Due to the increased demand for larger runs, we needed to invest in larger equipment that would complement our lean manufacturing lineup,” said Robert Petrie, founder, Grace Imaging. “Having two existing Epson label presses, we knew we could trust the state-of-the-art equipment, speed and efficiency that Epson’s digital label presses provide.”
Epson’s L-4533AW digital label press is designed to deliver the high-speed printing, precise quality and remarkable color gamut required for brand-quality color prime labels and packaging. Featuring versatile substrate support, the L-4533AW prints on off-the-shelf materials up to 13 inches wide, including uncoated, gloss and semigloss papers, film, and vinyl. Epson’s industrial-quality inks are durable, water-based, resin-coated pigment inks provide superior adhesion, plus water and abrasion resistance on most substrates.
“We invest in the best equipment in the industry because we take pride in providing our customers with the most-amazing premium labels possible, including various distributors, resellers and brokers that we work with throughout the industry,” said Petrie. “We selected the Epson SurePress L-4533AW because we trust its ability to replicate consistent labels every time.”
“Epson’s digital label presses are superior for printing on texture stocks,” said Petrie. “The inks seamlessly transfer on a variety of substrates, and that alone truly allows us to separate ourselves from our competition.”
