Garment labels now printed in colour


He was told it couldn’t be done, but John Baines of K.T. Labels has developed a printer that can now produce garment labels instantly in colour.

Mr Baines worked with Epson to adapt the TM-C3500 full colour label printer so that it could print garment labels.

He said: “This is sure to revolutionise garment manufacturing. At the moment in order to get labels cheap from a factory, you have to order a minimum of 10,000. This machine can produce them at a quarter of the price.”

The machine currently prints approximately 15 labels in three to four minutes, depending on size and the amount of ink used.

For a three-man company, K.T. Labels holds its own in the label industry. This back to school season alone 72,000 name tags were ordered from the company by parents through ASDA.

K.T.Labels’ name tags are currently sold through ASDA, Marks & Spencer and BHS. Mr Baines is currently in discussion with John Lewis and Debenhams.

To view the printer in action, search Epson TM-C3500 on YouTube.
