Doc's Tea

Doc’s Tea knew they needed exceptional labels for their bottles of low calorie tea, and that printing labels on demand and in-house was an ideal solution. When they discovered the amazing performance of the Kiaro! label printer they were amazed, and have been printing beautiful tea labels ever since.  Dr. Christopher Banks,  CCO of Doc’s Tea, says the Kiaro! has been great because, “we don’t have to spend so much money going out to the big labeling companies – we can print them out as we need them and save some time and also save some money.”

Key Surgical

With in-house UDI label printing, Key Surgical found fast, easy, and affordable compliance for labeling all of their different medical devices.  In this testimonial video, Key Surgical Director of Operations, Lena Cordie, says that with the Kiaro! label printer, “we save money on labeling stock, on supplies. We're able to purchase smaller quantities more frequently rather than storing them on site with the possibility of damage and waste. The Kiaro! has been a huge asset to our production productivity and efficiency.”

Amoretti

As a manufacturer of gourmet ingredients and natural flavors, Amoretti needed their labels to reflect their high-end quality. They purchased one Kiaro!, and soon realized that their volume of different product labels demanded two additional Kiaro! printers. Now with three Kiaro! label printers, they print 100s of varieties high-quality labels, in short run, on-demand. “I first looked at purchasing the Kiaro! because we developed so many new products every day,” said Roland Cooper, CIO, “and it just doesn’t make sense for me to develop a product, create a label and have it printed elsewhere.” Nick Squires, IT and Social Media Coordinator, said, “Our products are high-end pastry ingredients. We’re on the top shelf, and our Kiaro! printers allow us to look that way.”

A&J Bakery

A&J Bakery’s CEO explains why he switched to the printing his own labels with the Kiaro! instead of buying pre-printed labels from a local commercial printer. While buying pre-printed labels was fine at first, A&J Bakery’s low-volume, short-run label quantities soon made them a low priority customer for the commercial printer and turnaround times were very long. With the Kiaro! in-house, A&J Bakery’s delicious gluten-free and nut free baked goods are labeled on-demand, and shipments are no longer delayed.

Ortho Development

QuickLabel visited Ortho Development in Salt Lake City, UT, to find out how the maker of orthopedic implants is using the Kiaro! to print its FDA-compliant medical device labels.

"We distribute about half, or more than half of our product to Japan, and distributing to Japan requires labels to be perfect," said Carmen Moore, Packaging and Labeling Engineer at Ortho Development, "Our customers are looking for a label that is clear, and well defined... We took on the Kiaro! label printer and did a trial period with it. We found that it printed our labels perfectly. We... fell in love with it."

Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe makes every product you can think of that has Key lime in it, from salad dressing, to barbecue sauce, to dog treats, said Karen Puglisi, Sales and Marketing Director. “We use the Kiaro! for the vast majority of our products. It is a huge benefit for us and has definitely  helped us to save time and money. No longer do we have to buy thousands, and thousands, and thousands of any particular size of label. The Kiaro! prints excellent quality labels, the colors are very true. Our jellies and jams are in blue, our cookies are yellow, our BBQ sauces are green, and when you look at our labels, the color pops. The Kiaro! helps us market our products,” said Puglisi.

Quick Fitting

Quick Fitting, the leading manufacturer of “push connect” plumbing fittings and valves sold at Lowe’s, Tractor Supply, Ace Hardware, and other major hardware retailers, found that frequently changing labels to keep up with new retail labeling demands produced a wasteful excess inventory of pre-printed labels that became obsolete over time and were often not delivered fast enough. Quick Fitting was able to cut its costs by 40% when it began printing its own retail plumbing labels just-in-time with the Kiaro! inkjet label printer. “It allows us a flexibility we didn’t have in the past. If we ran out of labels– if we were even short by 30 labels – it cost us a shipment. With the Kiaro! we just simply walk over to the unit and print out some more labels,” said David Crompton, CEO of Quick Fitting.

CJ's Unique Boutique

CJ’s Unique Boutique of Colorado Springs, CO prints attractive cosmetics labels using the Kiaro! inkjet label printer for its amazing body care products. “The Kiaro! is a cost-effective, time saving label printer,” said Ryan Flynt, webmaster. “It creates excellent quality labels for our packaging, and I couldn’t be happier.” CJ’s Unique Boutique found that they needed durable inkjet labels that resisted water for their CJ’s BUTTer product, a cure-all cream that treats virtually all skin problems, from diaper rash to poison ivy. They tried printing lotion labels with the Kiaro! label printer, and found that the Kiaro!-printed labels survive shower water and abrasion from being carried in purses.  “If time is money, and you want to spend less time working with what needs to come out and get produced, this is the label printer you get,” said Flynt.

La Crema Coffee Company

Melissa Flohn, owner of La Crema Coffee Company, a specialty coffee roaster in Cincinnati, OH, did something different in 2012: she bought the Kiaro! inkjet label printer to make seasonal coffee labels printed with whimsical artwork created by Lula Bell Art & Designs. The idea was a hit: La Crema Coffee roasted and sold over 500,000 lbs. of coffee bag gifts in 2012. After 7 months of printing coffee labels with the Kiaro! label printer, Flohn says “We love the Kiaro!.” “We went with the Kiaro! because of the color it could achieve,” says Flohn.  “When I do a trade show, the first thing I hear from my customers when they walk into my booth is, “Oh my goodness, I love all the color – and look at the beautiful labels on that package.”
