Epson has qualified Herma self-adhesive materials for production of economic short runs of colour labels printed digitally using its water-based inkjet equipment.
Epson has performed extensive tests with its ColorWorks C7500 and C7500G water-based inkjet colour label printers. Results from these tests showed standard self-adhesive materials from Herma achieved ‘very good’ print results with ‘outstanding efficiency’ on these industrial colour label printing systems.
“Our product HERMAwhite (grade 601) was given very good marks, even though the white, machine-finished label paper is considered an absolute standard,” commented Timo Kerilahti, who works in the technical service team in Herma’s Self-adhesive Materials division.
“The label material was able to instantly absorb the water-based ink – the print image is excellent thanks to optimal ink adhesion.”
Nikos Vardakastanis, product manager, Prographics at Epson, added: “Our versatile inkjet colour label printers put an end to typical restrictions that go along with thermal transfer printing. Combined with Herma self-adhesive materials, for instance, users can now print high-quality, individual colour labels, tickets and price tags as required and in-house.”
