Hedgehog Coffee Roasters - Case Study
Hedgehog Coffee “wanted to improve cost effectiveness, quality, and throughput of label printing” when it came to printing their product labels in-house. They needed a replacement inkjet printer with flexible print options so that they could take advantage of planned product and service offerings.
- Increase speed
- Reduce drying time
- Decrease per-label cost
The Memjet-Powered Solution
Memjet provided the affordability, flexibility, and speed needed for their growing business. Because of the broad variety of media supported by the L801, Hedgehog Coffee Roasters can utilize a more affordable label stock that meets their requirements and at a reduced per-label cost.
This savings is increased by ink consumption being at least 60% lower than the ink used in their previous printer.
Hedgehog Coffee Roasters is able to use the Roll-to-Roll option for longer runs and Print-and-Present for as-needed production, increasing their overall productivity.
The L801’s print speed completes jobs 750%–1,500% faster than their previous printer. The L801 has kept up with a large spike in business, allowing Hedgehog Coffee to meet customer demand.
Return on Investment
Savings of about $0.87 per label (compared to outsourced labels). The L801 will pay for itself after running fewer than 15,000 labels.
I saw the L801 at a trade show and fell in love with it. Compared to my previous inkjet printer, this is like going from a farm tractor to a Rolls Royce. The quality of labels produced on the L801 was far superior to the quality of our previous labels, which were costing us $1.20 per label.”
