ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA – Printware, the leader in prepress and digital solutions, will debut the iJetColor Label Press to commercial printers during Graph Expo held at Chicago’s McCormick Place, September 28-October 1.   The iJetColor Label Press will be on display in the Printware Booth 1949.

The iJetColor Label Press is a compact, table top, 4-color inkjet press suitable for supporting production label stocks for product packaging personalization, variable data barcoding, shelf labels, product labels for retail and industrial applications. The system features:

  • Roll-to-roll printing
  • Fan fold printing

  • Integrated cutter
  • 60 feet per minute speed
  • Gap mark sensing

  • Production quality Harlequin RIP Workflow

“The iJetColor Label Press adds new capabilities to in-house manufacturing and commercial print shops of any size,” commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “Our customers requested an easy-to-use system with color matching and variable data capabilities at a cost that provided significant economic advantages to bring label packing applications in-house – especially shorter run more complex color work that is highly profitable.”

Printware will also demonstrate its award winning iJetColor Direct Mail Press, a compact, table top, 4-color inkjet press powered by Memjet technology suitable for supporting production paper stocks as heavy as .02 inch/.5 mm on up to 8.5” by 17” substrate for product personalization of:

  • Envelopes
  • Direct Mail  and Post Cards
  • Stationery
  • Invitations and Greeting Cards

Memjet technology was designed to deliver speed by bringing the fastest inkjet technology of its kind to the market. Using a completely re-envisioned printhead design along with a custom controller chip and software, each component was engineered to deliver printing speeds unheard of in the inkjet world.

Both iJetColor Press systems include Printware’s iJetColor Workflow based on the industry standard production quality Xitron Navigator Harlequin RIP and workflow with specially designed features for use with the iJetColor Press digital press. The iJetColor RIP and Workflow provides users with significant features and benefits including:

  • Xitron Navigator Harlequin RIP
  • Xitron Navigator Workflow with client application support for both Windows and Mac OS X including Mountain Lion
  • Control of iJetColor Press
  • Spot color matching application
  • Integrated soft proofing viewer at client workstations
  • Automated database backup
  • Increased optimization for PDFs with transparencies
  • Support for the Pantone Plus library

iJetColor Press systems are offered exclusively with a comprehensive package that includes an easy to use workflow, expert color matching software built in for a wide variety of readily available inkjet stocks, variable data enabled tools, proven Harlequin RIP technology, professional installation, 24/7 support and a no-finger pointing quality guarantee. 

“An iJetColor Press system brings new revenue opportunities to print shops, making it extremely affordable to produce 4-color jobs and to also capitalize on new shorter run opportunities. The iJetColor Press provides low cost, personalized printed images in print volume as low as one unit,” commented Murphy.

Printware was awarded a “MUST SEE ’EM” Best in Category during PRINT 13 and a “Game Changer” at Graphics of the Americas 2014 for its iJetColor™ Envelope Press and Workflow.
