One of the most common questions our end users and partners ask is: “What is GHS and how can I comply without having my costs skyrocket?” At Epson, we’ve been working on answering this question for almost 2 years now. Much of our early media and solution development has been centered around generating highly durable labels on demand. Fortunately, when used in conjunction with Kimdura poly face stock, the pigment ink used in our ink jet printers yields terrific results.
Our former Business Development Manager, Guy Mikel, had the opportunity to be early on the front lines and was able to help integrate Epson ColorWorks solutions for GHS. He wrote two blog posts (What is GHS? and BS5609 is No BS) that explain GHS in simple terms as well as the BS5609 certification that Epson secured in order to prove that our labels could stand up to the rigors of the chemical market.
Guy has started his own company dedicated to color label solutions. If you are interested in learning more about color labels, we encourage you to follow both his blog, Color Labels on Demand, and this one, ColorShift.
