Astro-Med Introduces QuickLabel Systems' Kiaro! 200 Color Label Printer for Wide Labels

WEST WARWICK, RI--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) - Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT) is announcing the worldwide release of its newest inkjet color label printer, the Kiaro! 200, which will be marketed by its QuickLabel Systems business unit. The new wide color label printer is currently being debuted at major packaging and labeling trade shows in North America and Europe, including Pack Expo in Las Vegas, Label Expo in Brussels, and Fachpack in Nuremberg.

According to the Company, the Kiaro! 200 is capable of printing gorgeous 1200 dpi high resolution labels that measure up to 8 inches wide by more than 17 inches long, at speeds of 8 inches per second. This new printer is intended to satisfy the short-run labeling needs of manufacturers of large-size products within the chemical, dietary supplement, and food industries, among others.

The Kiaro! 200 joins the standard Kiaro! label printer, which enables manufacturers to print labels from 1-4 inches in width.

"Based on feedback we have received from hundreds of our Kiaro! customers around the world, we believe that the Kiaro! is the most reliable high-speed in-house label printer technology on the market," said Eric E. Pizzuti, General Manager. "With the invention of our Kiaro! 200 color label printer, we can now serve new manufacturers, whose larger products require wider label widths, and who need to print color labels on demand, in-house."

The Kiaro! 200 is available now from QuickLabel Systems or one of the QuickLabel dealer partners worldwide.
