A new desktop digital label printer has been added to the product line at Intec Printing Solutions Limited in Poole, Dorset, UK. Mayor of Poole Cllr 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 Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. “This new short run roll to roll label printer is ideal for those wishing to print smaller quantities of their own labels and compliments the existing range of Intec on demand printers,” says Ian Melville, Managing Director of Intec Printing Solutions Limited. “It will handle small on demand jobs as well as considerably larger ones, too, making it ideal for those who don't want to invest in a very expensive system. The Edge 850 prints 2,000 labels in just 19 minutes.”
“Traditionally if you wanted 1,000 labels you’d have to commit to a much larger number to make it worthwhile for the printer to do the job," says Mark Hopkins, president of iSys. "Plus you’d typically have to wait two weeks before you could have them. This isn’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.”
Newly elected Mayor of Poole, Cllr Carol Evans, said at the event: “I 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.”
Recently appointed Under Sheriff of Dorset Katharine Jones added: “What 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.”
