December 6, 2011

The eight-color press was installed at Commerce Label & Tape in Montreal.

Commerce Label & Tape has installed the first ever eight-color Durst Tau 150-8C and Rotoworx 330 converting and finishing system. According to Jean Brazeau, founder and president of Commerce Label & Tape, the company evaluated several digital label systems before deciding on Durst.
“The Durst brand is well known in the wide format printing market, and their reputation for quality engineering and service was important in our decision to buy Durst,” Brazeau said.
According to Brazeau, Commerce Label & Tape has seen an increased demand for short runs, faster turnaround times, and jobs with added value. “The investment in digital means we can offer our customers a high quality product without sacrificing turnaround times or service,” he continued. Commerce Tape & Label is now the first label printer worldwide to offer in-line, one pass digital UV ink jet printing with CMYK as well as opaque White, Orange & Violet, and spot Varnish.
Victor Gomez, vice president of Durst Label Printing in North and South America, commented: “We are thrilled to have Commerce as our partner. We recognize the strength of their commitment to this technology, and will work alongside Mr. Brazeau and his team to make the investment a success. 2012 will be a very exciting time for both companies.”
Founded in 1936, Durst is a manufacturer of digital imaging systems for markets such as large format graphic, signage, screen printing, ceramic and wood décor, corrugated packaging, professional photographic and labels and narrow web.
