Press release from the issuing company
Milwaukee, WI, October 2006 -- Tailored Solutions Label Traxx—the popular print business management software for flexographic narrow web label printers and converters—now connects seamlessly with MACtac, a leading supplier of pressure sensitive adhesive coated papers and films. With this new feature, available in Label Traxx version 4.2.7 and subsequent versions, Label Traxx users can access the MACtac order system directly from their software.

Orders are received electronically, and roll ID numbers, widths, and actual lengths are received into Label Traxx directly from MACtac—saving time and ensuring accuracy.
