“We’ve used two SurePress presses for the past four years, so when it came time to bring on another machine, adding a third Epson press was a no-brainer – in large part because of the color consistency we can produce from label to label and run to run,” said Todd Boyt, president, Leapin’ Lizard Labels. “We pride ourselves in creating the highest quality labels for our customers and the Epson SurePress helps us deliver on this. The reproducibility of labels is crucial for our customers and the SurePress can produce consistent labels every single run.”

Leapin’ Lizard serves many businesses in over 35 different industries and depends on the ability to print readable small, thin fonts, text and barcodes. The SurePress L-4533AW digital label press produces high-quality, photographic print quality labels and adds greater flexibility and efficiency to the print shop. Featuring versatile substrate support, the L-4533AW prints on off-the-shelf materials up to 13-inches wide including uncoated, gloss and semi-gloss papers, film, and vinyl. Epson’s industrial-quality inks are durable, water-based, resin-coated pigment inks provide superior adhesion, plus water and abrasion resistance on most substrates.

“The SurePress does a great job printing small, readable text, which is something that is really important to our customers in markets like health and beauty that require a lot of information be included on a small package,” added Boyt.

“Leapin’ Lizard Labels was more than helpful when I came to them to place my first order,” said Amanda Meattey, operations assistant, Momenta. “I thought I knew what I needed, but after speaking with their friendly and responsive staff, I was able to get the product I was actually looking for. They sent fast quotes to ensure I was getting the exact labels I was in search of. The team was fast in responding to my inquiries and questions, the ordering process was simple, and my product was shipped and delivered very quickly. I am in the process of placing my second order already. I will continue to use Leapin’ Lizard Labels for all my sticker and label needs.”

“We have had a great experience with the SurePress models – often running the presses up to 20 hours per day,” said Boyt. “The presses have a remarkable color gamut that allows us to color match almost anything. And ultimately, the SurePress allows us to deliver great customer service with a fast turnaround time, or as we like to say – turn jobs around as fast as a lizard can snatch up a fly for breakfast.”

Driving the SurePress L-4533AW is the included Wasatch RIP. An advanced workflow automation solution, Wasatch delivers a fully customizable solution designed to streamline orders, minimize production errors, help increase productivity, and run print production effectively.

“The SurePress is engineered to help prime label converters and commercial printers increase high-quality output, productivity and efficiency, and we’re pleased to see it deliver on those promises to help Leapin’ Lizard Labels continue to grow its business and profitability,” said Mike Pruitt, senior product manager, Epson America, Inc. “For these reasons, and more, the SurePress L-4533AW is one of the best-selling digital inkjet label press on the market today.”
