Installing a Prime Label Press leads to BLiS

Steve_1How long does it take to install a digital industrial prime label press and start printing labels? According to this video, it only takes a minute. Okay, maybe not a minute in real time, but through the magic of time-lapse photography, the 8-hour installation of an Epson SurePress L-4033AW has been compressed into a minute.

Not long after Steve Middleton of at Middleton Printing got his press running, he worked on a label for his friend Steve Stallard. Stallard, owner of BLiS, needed a new label for his Blast Hot Pepper Sauce, which is aged in a whiskey, maple syrup, and stout-soaked barrel. The sauce’s packaging  required a beautiful estate 9 label with true matte black. Middleton’s new press was up to the task, producing a high quality label for BLiS’s finely crafted product. If you want to know more about this story, please download the case study (PDF).

Lastly, if you’re a label convertor and like hot sauce, contact me. I have a limited supply.
