QuickLabel Systems has forged a distribution agreement with Avery Dennison Printer Systems to equip its products with a new line of advanced care labelling systems.

The agreement will see the AP CareLabel 2/1 and AP CareLabel 1/1 two-sided care label printing systems added to Avery Dennison's product offering.

According to Avery Dennison marketing director Mark Hansinger, the agreement has established the company as one of just two full line tag and label suppliers to the apparel and retail industries.

"Avery Dennison now offers all tags for all garments," he said.

"The ability to supply systems that produce variable copy on both sides of care labels has been a gap in our product line.

"Now, care labelling has become a strength.

"The new two-side systems complement our existing high-speed 64-bit label printers for single-side care labelling."

The AP CareLabel 2/1 produces variable copy and symbology in two colours on one side of the label and one colour on the reverse, while the AP CareLabel 1/1 produces one colour on each side.

QuickLabel national sales manager Eric Pizzuti said the agreement would "lead to new and significant sales opportunities for both companies."
