CHICAGO—Oct. 29, 2012—Epson America announced that Ben Franklin Press & Label, an award-winning Napa, CA-based printer and converter (including packagePRINTING’s 2012 Excellence Awards Best of Show), has selected the Epson SurePress L-4033A printer to install in its center of operations. The company will be using the inkjet digital label press to produce vibrant, high-quality wine labels for numerous wineries.
“The wine label market brings together an extremely creative design community and an equally talented wine making group that pushes the envelope on printing processes,” noted Dennis Patterson, president and general manager, Ben Franklin Press. “We strive to achieve balance between art and technology, while bringing cutting-edge solutions to our clients.
“We spent over a year investigating the digital press market and our research took us to Labelexpo 2011 in Brussels and then to drupa 2012 in Germany. We performed follow-up tests with a number of manufacturers and found Epson’s SurePress inkjet technology excels over other digital technologies. The Epson SurePress gives us the quality required for the evolving wine label industry at a competitive price,” added Patterson.
