Press release from the issuing company

Epson ColorWorks C7500 and C831 Enable GHS Compliancy and Reduce Total Overhead 

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Epson America, Inc. today announced that Smark Company, a distributor of industrial custom blended specialty chemicals, has integrated the Epson ColorWorks® C7500 and C831 inkjet label printers into its business workflow to significantly streamline in-house label production and maintain a safe production environment. Leveraging the ColorWorks printers, Smark is able to produce labels with exceptional clarity and color, in half the time compared with their previous legacy two-step label production process, and effortlessly differentiate the hazardous chemicals used in custom blends to comply with strict Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) guidelines1.

“The two-step label process we utilized previously relied on pre-printed labels that would often smear or fade – a costly and risky issue,” said Michael Garcia, supply chain manager, Smark Company. “Since installing the C7500 label printer, along with the ColorWorks C831, we now have the flexibility and efficiency required to adapt to new industry mandates and keep up with the ever-evolving demands of our customers. The move to on-demand color labeling has been extremely beneficial to our business.”

Fast machines that consume ink efficiently and produce sharp images, the Epson ColorWorks C7500 and C831 printers are designed to increase productivity while reducing the cost of using pre-printed labels. Leveraging bright, durable label media, the printers give a premium look to professional branded products, and come highly recommended from renowned industry consultants.

“Smark was on a quest to find a different way to print their labels.  They were spending a lot of money printing labels with a laser printer – the labels would jam, slowing down production and causing other issues,” said Guy Mikel, founder, Color Label Solutions. “Based on this, and their need to comply with GHS requirements, I recommended the ColorWorks label printers from Epson, which has allowed them to produce a lot of quality color labels on-demand.”    

Ideal for high mix label requirements, ColorWorks solutions deliver dependable, commercial inkjet printing with fast-drying, durable color inks. This capability alone has introduced a new level of efficiency into Smark’s production process. In addition, given the on-demand nature of the printers, Smark can quickly customize label size and information, eliminating the need to inventory high numbers of pre-printed labels, resulting in much lower overall label costs. 

“We are thrilled that Epson ColorWorks label printers have helped Smark maintain a safe and efficient production environment,” said Andrew Moore, product manager, Epson America. “The ColorWorks label printers are designed to produce efficient, on-demand color label printing and reliable performance to drive business growth, and we are always pleased to see it deliver on those promises for our customers.”
