NS Multi Print Quality


This week, we reinstalled our NS Multi Demo printer after showing it for the first time at WestPack in February.

You can read about our experience at WestPack here:  http://colorlabelsondemand.blogspot.com/2018/02/westpack-2018-launch.html

It was a great experience for us to set up this printer again.  Most importantly, the experience reconfirmed the outstanding print quality that the NS Multi delivers.  Watch us print inkjet coated boxes here:


According to Grant Lapke, lead on the NS Multi for Color Label Solutions, "the black in this artwork printed outstanding compared to other options.  For me, black is always the most difficult color. The NS Multi Print is really durable, great for printing many different short run boxes."

Just as important for me, we saw outstanding print quality from bright white, non-inkjet coated boxes.  Look at the print quality of this box:

Look at the individual feathers in the parrot.  And the ink cost was less than $0.10.

And we test printed a “Panel” on white, non-inkjet coated, corrugated sheets.  Look at the print quality of this print output:

This one approximately 18” x 14” panel cost approximately $0.025 to print.  Only $0.10 for 4 panels on a box.  Our ink cost is great!!

Our next steps are to set up our corrugated, inkjet coating process and install our box die cutting operation.  We hope to have these operations running shortly; so we can begin producing unique blank boxes for you.

If we can print samples for you, please contact us.  We’d love to show you how great the NS Multi prints.

In addition to myself speaking on labels, Joel Bessmer, who led the event had presenters covering Regulatory, Packaging and Legal aspects of labels for cannabis providers in California.  If you are interested in the presentations, you can get them here:

As you all purchase and use labels, I encourage you to review my presentation.  You may find an idea that would save you money on your purchase of labels; including from us. To see the presentation, go to SlideShare:

https://www.slideshare.net/GuyMikel1/5-ways-to-save-on-labels

To summarize my presentation, the topics I covered were as follows:


  1. Preprint vs On-Demand: Depends on the number of SKU's
  2. Variable Data Usage:  Depends on the number of SKU's on how to approach
  3. Size Selection: Standard Sizes vs Custom Sizes depends on order quantity
  4. Order Quantity: Small Initial Orders vs Annual Orders
  5. Durability Requirement: Paper vs Synthetic
In addition, I provided two bonus ways to save on labels:

  • Manual vs Semi-Automatic vs Automatic application (watch the video on label applications on tubes)
  • Trusted Reseller (like us!)
But please go through the presentation and contact us if you have questions on any of the topics.  Or contact us if you want to save money on your labels.
