International Label & Printing Company has installed an Inca OnsetX3 wide format press with three-quarter automation, outputting a wide spectrum of point-of-purchase graphics for well-known retail clients.
Based near Chicago in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, International Label’s wide format division has ‘exploded’ with growth and ‘turned the place upside down’ according to Mark Turk, president and CEO.
The company’s client line-up includes wholesale groups, food processors, craft beer distributors, wineries, and a global chain with responsibility for nearly 600 of their U.S. stores.
Prior to installing the OnsetX3, outsourcing was a common occurrence at International Label. ‘Customer demand dictated wide format,’ says Turk. ‘We are managing an ever-increasing workload of variable signage for the retail sector, and turnarounds are easily one day.’
Capable of printing upwards of 9,600 square feet per hour (180 beds/hour), the OnsetX3 UV flatbed inkjet printer features three CMYK ink channels plus the choice of white or orange.
International Label utilizes a variety of substrates with the OnsetX3 including corrugated boards, PVC boards, and styrene.
International Label recently brought home a first place trophy from the Packaging Impressions Excellence Awards, within the Corrugated (Post/Direct Print) Digital Category for a skid wrap produced on the OnsetX3.
