Astro-Med's QuickLabel Systems Introduces Lustro-Lam(TM) Laminating Solution
WEST WARWICK, RI -- (Marketwired) -- 09/24/13 -- Astro-Med, Inc.
(NASDAQ: ALOT) is announcing the worldwide release of its exclusive
breakthrough laminating solution, Lustro-Lam, which is being marketed
through its QuickLabel Systems business unit. According to
QuickLabel, Lustro-Lam is a gloss overcoat film formulated to
laminate inkjet-printed labels.
Lustro-Lam is an optically clear film that mates with the surface of
an inkjet-printed label to produce a glossier, more durable label
surface, according to the Company. The Lustro-Lam pairs well with the
Kiaro! inkjet label printer to produce water and chemical resistant
labels with a rich, glossy finish, according to QuickLabel.
The Lustro-Lam System, which consists of Lustro-Lam overcoat film, a
Pronto! printer, and NiceLabel(R) or Custom QuickLabel(R) software,
is being demonstrated this week at Pack Expo in Las Vegas as well as
at LabelExpo in Brussels, and at Fachpack in Nuremberg.
"Lustro-Lam is our revolutionary laminating system that costs
tens-of-thousands of dollars less than other cumbersome finishing
systems," said General Manager Eric E. Pizzuti. "We're proud to give
our customers the capability to apply Lustro-Lam to their products in
any number of ways: in spot areas, or over an entire label, and on
labels large or small."
A New Laminating Solution
QuickLabel says that they have been developing this exclusive
labeling solution for more than a year.
According to the Company, Lustro-Lam can be applied with a QuickLabel
Pronto! printer. Because it is digitally applied to the label
on-demand, users can choose to add lamination to a spot area or to
cover an entire label.
QuickLabel states that the Lustro-Lam labeling solution is a cost
effective labeling solution. "The cost to apply Lustro-Lam to
standard size labels is less than $0.01 per label for standard size
labels," said Pizzuti. "The cost of the total solution is
tens-of-thousands of dollars less than competitive labeling
According to QuickLabel, Lustro-Lam can be used with die-cut labels
so that there is no need for the user to purchase a die-cutter.
