Sharp and OKI partner to fill the market gap for small-run label and package printing.

Auckland, 12 April 2021 — Sharp Corporation of New Zealand, a subsidiary of Sharp Japan, has today announced that they have ranged several OKI Pro Series label and packaging printers in response to a growing demand for in-house, short-run packaging and label printing capabilities. 

Perfect for businesses of any size that are looking for bespoke or specialised product designs, the new Pro Series printers offer a unique opportunity for businesses to regain control of their packaging design. The series range includes the Pro1040 and Pro1050 label printers, as well as the Pro9542DN packaging printer

The two label printers have a sleek, table top design, and make light work of most label media—paper or synthetic. There is no print degradation with water, oil or alcohol, reduced colour migration via surface scratching and resistance to fading from exposure to sunlight. 

The Pro1040 and Pro1050 are perfect for creating labels that require toughness and durability (such as warning labels) and can even print solid white on to coloured or transparent media to create unique results. 

The Pro9542DN packaging printer is set to revolutionise the print industry by offering results previously only achievable through expensive digital or lithographic printing equipment. Any business or reprographics studio can now create professional packaging on-demand.

The Pro9542DN offers professional, long-lasting print quality with higher speeds and a lower total cost of ownership, complete with media flexibility plus the unique ability to print the full range of process colours—including solid white on a dark background. Most digital printers have difficulty printing on non-standard and heavy stock, but with the Pro9542DN the toner fuses effortlessly to the media, reducing print quality issues and wastage. 

These new additions to Sharp New Zealand’s already broad range of office technology are the perfect choice for companies looking for professional proofing, light production or short-run on-demand creative printing of bespoke packaging. 

The new range of Pro Series label and packaging printers are now available to all Sharp business customers in New Zealand. View the Pro1040/1050 HERE, and the Pro9542 HERE.
