Footprint into labels with Epson SurePress
WA-based operation Footprint is moving into the labels market, ordering a new Epson SurePress L-4533 digital label press and Scorpio converting unit from Fujifilm Business Innovation.
Patrick Oldfield, founder of the 30-year-old business said, “Labels represent a great opportunity. We are in Mandurah, near the major wine producing region here. We think many winemakers want short-run, on-demand, high quality labels, which Footprint will now be able to provide.”
Footprint is in the commercial market with both offset and digital, with its digital presses supplied and serviced by Fujifilm. James Oldfield, son of Patrick, who with his sister Stella will be taking over the running of the business, said, “We have experienced superb servicing from Fujifilm over many years, and that was a key factor in us opting for the Epson SurePress supplied by Fujifilm.
“The quality of the image on the press is really impressive, as is the productivity. It will enable us to meet the demands of the market with confidence.”
Chris Lynch, general manager – Graphic Communications at Fujifilm Business Innovation said, “Footprint is a great example of a print business that has identified a growth opportunity in a new market, and is investing in technology to enable it to operate successfully in that market.”
