Discount Labels Adds Domino UV Inkjet Printer

GURNEE, IL | Discount Labels, New Albany, IN, integrated the Domino K600i UV digital inkjet printer into its label printing operation in order to add consistent and reliable variable data to label print jobs for its customers. Discount Labels is a Trade Only printer and sells to more than 25,000 dealers.

“For variable data printing, Discount Labels trusts Domino,” says Mike Gore, general manager at Discount Labels.

Discount Labels has 500 employees; 200,000 square feet; and more than 70 printing presses…a lot of which are proprietary and were built in-house. It is a full-service, one-stop shop for dealers, and having a reliable solution for printing variable data is key to its success and growing the business. “Before we purchased the Domino K600i, the orders we could not market included the wide variety of bar codes. And now after having the K600i, our sales team is able to go out and market these jobs that we could never before have in-house at Discount Labels”, says Kelly Cart, Discount Labels’ digital prepress technician.

Domino’s K600i, which prints 600 dpi at up to 246 fpm, utilizes iTech Smart features designed and engineered to not only provide reliable high quality printing but also increase uptime and throughput and decrease makeready, maintenance, and material waste. With features such as CleanCap automated printhead cleaning, StitchLink automated stitching of printheads, ActiFlow ink optimization, and User Selectable Droplet Sizes including 6, 7, 11 and 14 Pico Liter, the K600i has been the solution Discount Labels was looking for.

“Our dealers are selling more and more variable data, and we knew we had to invest in new technology, so we went to Labelexpo. We looked at a lot of units including the Domino, and looking at the pros and cons of all the units, the Domino K600i came out on top. We’ve been running it 24 hours a day, and it’s been bullet proof,” says Gore. And Cart agrees. “As a technical prepress person at Discount Labels, life is much better with the K600i, and I am not sure how we functioned without it.”
