New York-based custom printing company Sticker Mule has installed a SurePress L-6534VW UV press from Epson.

The SurePress machines have fine-tuned feature settings for prime label converters and commercial printers. The SurePress L-6534VW with digital varnish or optional orange ink delivers high-speed printing of up to 2 million square feet per month. The new SurePress L-4733AW is the only digital press in its class with white ink for prime labels and thin films.

The purchase was Epson’s 100th SurePress digital label press sale in North America.

Anthony Constantino, co-founder and CEO of Sticker Mule, said, ‘Epson helped us take over the online label market and it’s a great honour to install the 100th Epson SurePress printer sold in North America. No one can touch the combination of Sticker Mule magic and Epson print quality. Not only is the SurePress a great machine, but the Epson team behind it is an innovative powerhouse. They deserve a big congratulations for reaching such a major milestone. I only wish we owned all 100.’

Victor Gomez, director of industrial labels at Epson America, added, ‘Our 100th SurePress installation in North America is a testament to the acceptance in the market of Epson technology for high-end digital inkjet label production. We have installed presses at label converters of all sizes, as well as at promotional products printers, print-for-use sites, and many other traditional and non-traditional label and packaging providers. It’s appropriate that this milestone was reached with the SurePress L-6534VW UV press at Sticker Mule, who coincidentally also bought the very first SurePress L-6534VW.’
