CertiFresh Cigar – Case Study
Industry: Promotional Products
Location: Robbinsdale, MN
CertiFresh Cigar was printing their tobacco labels on a sheet-fed desktop inkjet printer, which they described as “very limiting.” They needed a professional label printer with greater speed and capability that would produce “the ultimate prestigious image” for their clients’ labels, but was also easy to use, and printed roll to roll. The Memjet-Powered Afinia Label L801 industrial label printer allows CertiFresh Cigar to print high-end, personalized cigar labels, which are placed on specialized, humidity-controlled packaging.
- Increased speed
- Increased print quality
- Print to rolls
The Afinia Label Solution
The Memjet-powered Afinia L801 Color Label Printer provided CertiFresh Cigar with everything they needed to improve their labels and save their business time and money. The L801 increased label printing speed to 60 ft/min, and reduced production time by printing labels roll-to-roll, and ready for application. CertiFresh Cigar continues to save with the printer’s low-cost consumables.
The high-resolution 1600×1600 dpi capability of the L801 has also allowed CertiFresh Cigar to print the vivid, eye-catching labels required for their high-end product. They are now able to choose between tag stock and label stock, rather than be limited to flat stock of a certain size. Mahmood says, “It has taken our business to a new level!”
Return on Investment
“The return on investment is terrific. The time savings alone is incredible, but the savings with the ink is also substantial. Our tobacco labels have never looked better.”
…The L801 printer has made an enormous impact on our business, allowing us to print faster and save money. Time is very important to us and knowing that I can get the labels printed quickly for a fast turnaround is amazing. We are in control of our printing now.” – Michele Mahmood, Co-Owner – CertiFresh Cigar
