Epson and iD Products | 21048
Epson is partnering with iD Products, an Epson Advantage Platinum ProFocus Partner, to showcase ColorWorks® on-demand desktop inkjet label printers at the Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America. During the show, iD Products will take attendees through the process of identifying, testing and setting up a system to produce high-quality labels on demand, as well as print personalized examples for attendees onsite.
“This will be our third year at the Craft Brewers Conference, and with every year comes more success,” said Paul Enos, president, iD Products. “It is especially exciting to demonstrate, in real-time, the benefits of the Epson ColorWorks on-demand printer — being able to take a breweries’ artwork and print it on the spot on the show floor demonstrates the simplicity and benefits of an on-demand color label system.”

iD Products will showcase how to customize labels for specialty, low-run brews, including how to easily incorporate “brew dates” to labels. They will feature a wide selection of materials and adhesives with varying performance characteristics to suit individualized needs. iD Products will be featuring samples from its brewery and winery customers, as well as have the following printers on display and printing real-time:
ColorWorks C7500 — Designed to give the craft brewer the ability to produce full color, high-quality color labels on demand, the C7500 allows for economical production of many unique label designs in short runs, printing variable data up to 11.8 in. per second1, while reducing the cost and inefficiency of pre-printed labels.
ColorWorks C3500 — Producing full color labels at a lower entry price point, the C3500 provides speeds of up to 4 in. per second2.
“iD Products works with many craft breweries and wineries that desire a label printer solution that is dependable, with fast-drying, durable color inks,” said Andrew Moore, product manager, Epson America Inc. “We are excited to partner with iD Products at the upcoming Craft Brewers Conference to further demonstrate the affordability and convenience of on-demand color label production.”
