  QuickLabel Systems Introduces NiceLabel Driver for Kiaro! Inkjet Label

Business Wire

WEST WARWICK, R.I. -- July 15, 2014

QuickLabel Systems, a business unit of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), and
NiceLabel announce the joint release of a native NiceLabel^® printer driver
for the Kiaro!^® inkjet color label printer. The printer driver will allow
Kiaro! printer users to enjoy the benefits of NiceLabel’s world-class labeling
software technology. Printing labels with the NiceLabel Kiaro! printer driver
is different than using NiceLabel through a standard Windows driver. It
enables Kiaro! users to print labels more efficiently, taking advantage of
NiceLabel’s print job optimization and variable information printing

The NiceLabel printer driver for the Kiaro! is available free of charge with
the purchase of any Kiaro! label printer, and can be downloaded at any time
from the QuickLabel Systems website and also from the NiceLabel website.

In a related announcement, QuickLabel says it is now offering a service to
create custom user interfaces for NiceLabel labeling software. Custom
interfaces allow QuickLabel owners to quickly deploy a complete solution for
in-house color label printing that is tailored specifically to their needs.
For example, a Kiaro! owner concerned with maintaining label security might
create a user interface that restricts the ability of a printer operator to
edit the printable label file, thus minimizing human error and reducing
training requirements. In another example, a Kiaro! owner might customize the
look and feel of their software by using their own logo and brand imagery to
adorn a basic interface.

“Today, companies require the flexibility to print color-rich labels, as
quickly and cost-effectively as possible, enabling them to add value to their
products and increase sales,” said Kevin Brisson, Product Manager of
QuickLabel Systems. “NiceLabel’s capabilities and native QuickLabel drivers
enable companies to leverage powerful design and automation tools to achieve a
turn-key, color label printing system.”

“We’re excited to deepen our relationship with QuickLabel Systems through the
release of a native Kiaro! printer driver for NiceLabel,” said Victor Hollo,
Regional Account Manager, NiceLabel Americas. “Combining the high-speed color
printer driver with NiceLabel’s next generation labeling technology ensures
that Kiaro! users have unlimited design, integration, and production options
for accomplishing labeling requirements for product packaging, GHS, and other
color labeling initiatives."
