Factor Forms and Labels (Edmonton, Alberta) has purchased the Domino N610i digital UV inkjet label press – Canada’s first Domino N610i. Factor Forms and Labels is Canada’s largest business forms and labels trade-only printer with plants in Edmonton, Niagara Falls and Victoria, and sales offices in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Niagara Falls. The Domino N610i is Factor Forms and Labels’ sixth digital press purchased since 2008, and will help drive their business objectives. The press runs at a minimum of 165 fpm up to 246 fpm. Print resolution is 600 x 600 native dpi and the white has an opacity over 70%. “The Domino N610i delivers the highest digital productivity, the best digital UV inkjet quality, the most consistent print results, and is a simple operating model,” the OEM said in a release.

factorformsdomino1-in“Our focus for labels has been the short-run marketplace and our exclusive use of digital label presses and laser die-cutters allows our dealers to be very successful going after this short-run business,” said Tom Moore, Vice President and General Manager of Factor Forms and Labels. “However, we’re now seeing requests for larger quantities and the Domino N610i will allow our dealers to pursue mid-range quantity orders – especially those with multiple SKU’s. We also see texturing being a great value-add to what our dealers offer their customers.

The ‘texturing’ that Moore is referring to is the recent introduction of Textures by Domino – a new, unique inkjet capability of the press that allows label printers to produce visually striking digitally printed, tactile and textured labels that enhance shelf presence and make brand owners’ products stand out from the crowd. It provides a cost-effective way to create amazing “feel appeal” without the use of expensive textured label materials, said the company.
