Commenting on the release, Kevin S. Brisson, Product Manager, said: “Our customers led us to develop a Mac-compatible printer driver. In particular, Zeo! printer owners who are professional graphic designers, package design engineers, marketers, and small business owners demanded the ability to print labels to their Zeo! inkjet label printer directly from their preferred Mac OS graphic design applications. I want to express my sincere thanks to each and every person who took the time to provide feedback to QuickLabel Systems. There’s no doubt that our customers are our most valuable sources of inspiration for new product development.”
