KODAK THERMOFLEX Narrow Platesetter Helps The Label Shoppe Grow Business, Revenue and Customer Satisfaction


ROCHESTER, N.Y.- When Rudolph Gaytan needed a seamless way to produce labels in house for his family owned and operated snack food manufacturing operation, Gaytan Foods, he founded The Label Shoppe in City of Industry, Calif. Launched in 1991, the in plant printing division was the perfect complement to the family’s larger snack food manufacturing operation, and it was an idea that stuck, gaining the business notoriety and attracting the attention and business of its food customers. As outside orders for labels and tags began to pour in, The Label Shoppe needed a way to improve print quality and plate consistency without sacrificing customer service and support. With its newKODAK THERMOFLEX Narrow Platesetter, the Label Shoppe does both—and then some.

“Producing our labels digitally has become priority one,” says Ryan Gaytan, son of founder Rudolph Gaytan and Vice President of The Label Shoppe. “Thanks to Kodak’s digital printing technologies, we have been able to turn prepress into a controlled, digital manufacturing process, making it easier to enhance the quality of flexographic printing, reduce cycle times, and improve process control by eliminating variables in our plate manufacturing process.”

As the ideal choice for narrow web printers and print shops, the KODAK THERMOFLEX Narrow Platesetter combines repeatability with production proven reliability to deliver consistent, high quality print, and improved press performance for digital flexographic and letterpress plates. For The Label Shoppe, that means enhanced automation and a whole lot more, including a more reliable and consistent plate sent to the plate room on a daily basis.

The KODAK THERMOFLEX Narrow Platesetter provides maximum flexibility for accommodating a wide range of media sizes and thicknesses from a variety of suppliers. What’s more, its small footprint, easy to use KODAK TIFF Front End Software, and universal workflow connectivity make it an easy fit for printers, trade shops and converters utilizing any type of printing technology.
