Case Study: E-Cigarette Company

Industry: eCigarette Location: USA

Outsourcing the printing of our eCig labels was beginning to be a burden…there were set up fees, shortages and delays. We couldn’t ship orders without labels which led to lost revenue and lost opportunities. The Afinia L801 Color Label Printer simplified that process. Now, we can change the content of our labels quickly and easily.

The Situation

A fast-growing eCig company has to deal with a fluid regulatory environment and be competitive from an operational and marketing perspective. The managing of outsourcing labels has been problematic, so they considered bringing it in-house.

The Memjet-Powered Solution

They chose the Memjet-powered Afinia L801 with the slitting rewinder. Their labels are small (1.5” x 2.5”) and they couldn’t find another printer to support their format.

eCig Labels - Afinia Label Ecig Label Printer Case Study


Went from stocking 40 label SKUs to printing on-demand, and eliminating order management. Repurposed label warehouse space for production.

The quality of our eCig labels is better than the outsourced product, with brighter, more accurate colors, and increased legibility. The Afinia L801 legibly print fonts as small as 3 points.

Time Savings

The L801 prints up to 60 feet-per-minute, and with the slitter/rewinder, they can print thousands of labels per day. This makes the Afinia L801 at least 20-times faster than any comparable printer.

Return on Investment

Savings of about 50%, when compared to outsourced labels, equating to about $2,000 per month. The L801 will pay for itself in 7 months.

Case Study: Kanani Foods

Industry: Food & Beverage Location: Las Vegas, NV

When we were using the thermal printer to print labels for refrigerated food, it would take 7 hours to print labels for the day’s production. Now, it takes 25 minutes, which is a 94% labor cost savings.”

Labels for refrigerated food

The Situation

Kanani Foods is a Las Vegas-based supplier of sushi, sandwiches, and salads to casinos, retailers, and convenience stores in Nevada and the surrounding states. Founded in 2003, Kanani has grown from an 800 to a 20,000 square foot warehouse and have increased their product mix from 1 to 195.

Adding a large number of products increased the complexity of their FDA compliance and labeling, as evidenced by the increase in their label printing volume, from 25 to 20,000 labels/day.

Kanani started printing label sheets on an inkjet printer, moved on to thermal (black only), and thermal overprint of preprinted labels. Their need for variable data labels, increased branding sophistication, and growing product lines caused them to seek a more professional and scalable label printing solution.

Kanani Foods was using one-color preprinted labels for refrigerated food with a thermal printer to produce their 20,000 labels per day, with an inventory of 195 different label rolls. They wanted to produce more professional-looking labels on-demand while decreasing inventory and staying FDA compliant.

Solution Requirements

  • Use variable data to maintain FDA compliance
  • Decrease production time and label inventory
  • Create more professional-looking labels

The Memjet-Powered Solution

Kanani Foods purchased the Memjet-powered L801 to reinvent the look of their labels. With the L801’s variable data printing capability, Kanani Foods is able to print FDA-compliant labels on-demand that contain manufacturing and sell by dates, and labels that meet USDA customers’ specific labeling, branding, and other requirements. By drastically reducing the amount of time it takes to print their label runs, they were able to gain over 6.5 hours of production, reduce headcount by one person (saving $4,000 per month), and increase production by over 50%. The L801 allows Kanani Foods to continue to grow their thriving business.

Return on Investment

Kanani Foods saved 22% per printed label, saving $600 per day. The L801 will pay for itself in approximately one month.

Before Memjet
Kanani Foods used thermal printing on one-color preprinted labels.
After Memjet
Full-color labels are printed on-demand, in-house.
Before Memjet
Kanani Foods’ thermal label printing method cost $0.05 per label.
After Memjet
$0.03-$0.04 per label cost, for 22% per label cost savings, or $600 per day savings.
Before Memjet
Labels lacked visual appeal, and printing took 7 hours (for approximately 20,000 labels).
After Memjet
High-quality, professional labels print in 25 minutes—resulting in 94% labor cost savings.
