WEST WARWICK, RI--(Marketwired - September 24, 2013) -

Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT) is announcing the worldwide release of its exclusive breakthrough laminating solution, Lustro-Lam, which is being marketed through its QuickLabel Systems business unit. According to QuickLabel, Lustro-Lam is a gloss overcoat film formulated to laminate inkjet-printed labels.

Lustro-Lam is an optically clear film that mates with the surface of an inkjet-printed label to produce a glossier, more durable label surface, according to the Company. The Lustro-Lam pairs well with the Kiaro! inkjet label printer to produce water and chemical resistant labels with a rich, glossy finish, according to QuickLabel.

The Lustro-Lam System, which consists of Lustro-Lam overcoat film, a Pronto! printer, and NiceLabel® or Custom QuickLabel® software, is being demonstrated this week at Pack Expo in Las Vegas as well as at LabelExpo in Brussels, and at Fachpack in Nuremberg.

"Lustro-Lam is our revolutionary laminating system that costs tens-of-thousands of dollars less than other cumbersome finishing systems," said General Manager Eric E. Pizzuti. "We're proud to give our customers the capability to apply Lustro-Lam to their products in any number of ways: in spot areas, or over an entire label, and on labels large or small."

A New Laminating Solution

QuickLabel says that they have been developing this exclusive labeling solution for more than a year.

According to the Company, Lustro-Lam can be applied with a QuickLabel Pronto! printer. Because it is digitally applied to the label on-demand, users can choose to add lamination to a spot area or to cover an entire label.

QuickLabel states that the Lustro-Lam labeling solution is a cost effective labeling solution. "The cost to apply Lustro-Lam to standard size labels is less than $0.01 per label for standard size labels," said Pizzuti. "The cost of the total solution is tens-of-thousands of dollars less than competitive labeling solutions."

According to QuickLabel, Lustro-Lam can be used with die-cut labels so that there is no need for the user to purchase a die-cutter.
