At Last - Full Colour Labels on a Roll
If you have $500,000 to spend you might consider digital. A spare $30,000 you could go for a 4 colour 300 dpi thermal transfer printer. But if you want a fast, full colour, hi resolution label printer that won't break the bank, look no further because the Primera LX800 has arrived.
For the first time you can have vibrant, quality printed labels on the roll without a budget busting price tag.
The LX800 released at LabelExpo in Chicago last September is proving to be a real winner with both resellers and end users alike. With its incredible 4,800 dpi print quality, wide format, high speeds and variety of useable substrates, the LX800 delivers results that far exceed any other on-demand printer available today.
Setting up the LX800 is simplicity itself using the latest Windows XP/2000 drivers to control all the printing functions. Five built-in resolution settings let you choose the print quality and speed combinations that best suit your application. The printer comes complete with NiceWare™ label design software enabling the user to print professional labels and tags with full colour photos, graphics, bar codes and text right out of the box.
If all this wasn't enough Label Power offers you a great range of pre die-cut labels, including water resistant labels to use with your LX800. High-gloss, matt and semi-gloss labels together with a range of card tag, synthetic and clear polyester combine to give you the most comprehensive range of inkjet printable materials.
With its sturdy metal case and ink cartridges that literally take seconds to replace, the LX800 is quite simply the best industrial grade colour inkjet printer on the market today.
Primera LX800 printer is manufactured in the USA by Primera technology (www.primera.com) and distributed in Australia by Label Power Pty Ltd.

Are your printers following your Graphic Guidelines?
Most companies have a Company logo but how do you control how this is used and displayed by other parties? How can you stop someone printing your logo with the wrong version, typeface, colour or dimensions?
The best way is to have your own company graphic guidelines created. This document shows print and web companies how they can display your logo, what size the logo is allowed to be displayed, where on the page the logo is to be positioned, etc.
When ordering your printing requirements you can rest easy if you send your company graphic guidelines with your printing order – this will ensure your new and repeat printed material looks uniform and professional.
Why not contact Label Power's in-house graphic design team for your own set of professional graphics guidelines.
Label Power's creative team has over 40 years cutting edge experience working with major brands and organisations such as Sheraton Hotels, Unicef and Rough Guides. A complete range of services from basic layout and pre-press to illustration and full project management is available to compliment your promotional strategies and campaigns.

Keep on Running
At Label Power we understand that your thermal printer is an important tool for your business. An untimely breakdown can often mean serious consequences so our service team is on hand to provide technical help when you need it.
You can choose from a range of preventative maintenance plans or just simply contact us when necessary. If our trained technicians can't fix the problem on-site we can arrange for a "hot swap"* machine to get you up and running while your printer is repaired.
Our knowledge of printers extends beyond those printers Label Power sells. If you need assistance with any brand of thermal printer including Datamax, Citizen, Birch, Eltron or Tharo please give us a call.
We also provide technical support and direct manufacturer assistance for our other printer lines such as the Primera LX800, VIP Colour VP2020 and Nagano Nameliner 850 Pro.
Just like your car your thermal printer needs a service. Ideally your printer should be serviced every 6 months and as a minimum every year. Call our Help Line to book your service and make sure you keep your labelling system running reliably:
1300 727 202 or 07 3710 7000
*Hot swap is only available to customers who have purchased their machine directly from Label Power.
