A new desktop digital label printer has been launched at Intec Printing Solutions Limited in Poole, Dorset.
Mayor of Poole Cllr Mrs Carol Evans unveiled the Edge 850 at an event in Poole attended by Under Sheriff of Dorset Katharine Jones and guests from as far away as Zimbabwe, Slovakia, Turkey, Italy and France.
A partnership agreement was signed between iSys Label, the Canada-based manufacturer of the Edge 850 and Intec Printing Solutions Limited. This makes Intec the sole distributor for the label printer in the whole of Europe, the Middle East, the former Soviet states (Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Hindustan), Pakistan, South East Asia, Russia, Israel, India and Africa. â€œThis new short run label printer is ideal for those wishing to print small quantities of their own labels and compliments the existing range of Intec on demand printers,â€? said Ian Melville, Managing Director of Intec Printing Solutions Limited, adding: â€œThe Edge 850 prints 2,000 labels in just 19 minutes.â€?
Mark Hopkins, President of iSys, said: â€œTraditionally if you wanted 1,000 labels youâ€™d have to commit to a much larger number to make it worthwhile for the printer to do the job. Plus youâ€™d typically have to wait two weeks before you could have them. This isnâ€™t acceptable and this is where the new Edge 850 is so valuable. Now customers can print their own labels quickly and efficiently. It will handle both die cut and non-die-cut stock. The Edge also has change-out toner, easy to use software and sets up in just 15 minutes.â€?
Newly elected Mayor of Poole Cllr Carol Evans said: â€œI am proud to unveil this really innovative piece of equipment. I am so pleased to have been invited here to unveil this product at this, my seventh official engagement.â€?
Newly appointed Under Sheriff of Dorset Katharine Jones added: â€œWhat a good news story for Poole. We all tend to think of the borough as a holiday destination but it has strong international trade links. Intec Printing Solutions and Sunseeker, to name but a few, both export their products around the world and really put Poole on the map.â€?
International guests, Intec MD Ian Melville, the Mayor of Poole Cllr Mrs Carol Evans and her consort Mr Evans.
