QuickLabel Systems Introduces NiceLabel Driver for Kiaro! Inkjet Label Printer

QuickLabel Systems, a business unit of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), and NiceLabel announce the joint release of a native NiceLabel® printer driver for the Kiaro!® inkjet color label printer. The printer driver will allow Kiaro! printer users to enjoy the benefits of NiceLabel’s world-class labeling software technology. Printing labels with the NiceLabel Kiaro! printer driver is different than using NiceLabel through a standard Windows driver. It enables Kiaro! users to print labels more efficiently, taking advantage of NiceLabel’s print job optimization and variable information printing capabilities.

The NiceLabel printer driver for the Kiaro! is available free of charge with the purchase of any Kiaro! label printer, and can be downloaded at any time from the QuickLabel Systems website and also from the NiceLabel website.

In a related announcement, QuickLabel says it is now offering a service to create custom user interfaces for NiceLabel labeling software. Custom interfaces allow QuickLabel owners to quickly deploy a complete solution for in-house color label printing that is tailored specifically to their needs. For example, a Kiaro! owner concerned with maintaining label security might create a user interface that restricts the ability of a printer operator to edit the printable label file, thus minimizing human error and reducing training requirements. In another example, a Kiaro! owner might customize the look and feel of their software by using their own logo and brand imagery to adorn a basic interface.

“Today, companies require the flexibility to print color-rich labels, as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, enabling them to add value to their products and increase sales,” said Kevin Brisson, Product Manager of QuickLabel Systems. “NiceLabel’s capabilities and native QuickLabel drivers enable companies to leverage powerful design and automation tools to achieve a turn-key, color label printing system.”

“We’re excited to deepen our relationship with QuickLabel Systems through the release of a native Kiaro! printer driver for NiceLabel,” said Victor Hollo, Regional Account Manager, NiceLabel Americas. “Combining the high-speed color printer driver with NiceLabel’s next generation labeling technology ensures that Kiaro! users have unlimited design, integration, and production options for accomplishing labeling requirements for product packaging, GHS, and other color labeling initiatives."
