Digital Printing

The Epson SurePress capitalizes on Epson’s acclaimed Micro Piezo ink jet technology to create output with smooth gradations and incredible colour quality.  Its six-colour (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Orange and Green), industrial quality, water-based ink set produces a remarkable range of colour for impressive, professional and consistent results.  Driving this best-in-class ink jet technology is the Epson SurePress Print Plugin for Adobe Illustrator.

The Epson SurePress also delivers on substrate versatility.  With no pre-treatment or top coating required, a variety of standard off-the-shelf substrates can be used at variable web widths up to 330mm wide.

Epson has worked with industry-leading manufacturers on every aspect of digital label production, from colour management to media and finishing options, and offers a new, open approach that makes the adoption of digital short-run label printing easier.

    o    Colours are richer and more natural
    o    Colour gradations are extremely smooth
    o    Barcode lines are sharp
  • Vibrant and accurate colours
  • No loss of definition on uncoated and textured label stocks.
  • Higher efficiency

  • How will your digital labels be produced?
  • Once our client has approved the artwork, our pre-press staff will prepare the files and print the labels on the Epson SurePress.
