Flexibility, timeliness and cost savings are the new watchwords
With the experience of Brunazzi family a new company of the cosmetic sector was born in 2012. In 2017 an internal transfor-mation took place by taking the name of San Pietro Lab Snc, inspired by the beautiful area where it is located: Diano San Pie-tro in the province of Imperia.
In December 2017 the CEO Mattia Brunazzi decided to invest in a digital solution of colour label printers that could allow him to print professional labels on demand. He knew the brand Primera from a fair four years ago, but only in 2017 he is convinced of the need to introduce this solution into the company.
„We are a family company of cosmetic products for face and body, producing a few hundred pieces at time. Until today we have been turning to a printing press, with very long delivery times, minimum order quantities and consequent high warehouse costs and waste of unused labels,“ says Mr. Brunazzi. „Today, however, thanks to Primera’s LX1000e Color Label Printer we can print only the labels we need in that time. Just this morning we prepared a customized supply for a pharmacy, printing 12 labels for a sin-gle product, quickly and economically,” he continues.
“Finally, these days we have received a request for products from a customer from China and we are preparing custom labels in Chinese. Before we could never have sat-isfied this request!”
The printer has been placed in the office and is used daily for the production of labels. It has been defined as an intuitive machine, easy to use, but like all technological tools, it needs practice to be able to make the most of its potential.
Asked what the advantages in these first months of use are Mr. Brunazzi directly answered: „Flexibility, timeliness and above all a huge costs saving, in terms of inventory and waste. We bought the printer with the intention of using it only for customisation, but we immediately understood that it was cheaper to produce internally the labels of all our products, because the print quality is excellent and the costs contained. The only drawback: it is a bit ‚boring’ to change the roll every time, unfortunately we have many different formats, but it would be with any printer!”
When talking about prices and investments there is always a little fear of the answer, but it was very positive instead: „Honestly I didn’t give much importance to the price of the printer, but I paid attention to the quality of printing and the countless advantages practical and economic that would have led to the company,” Mr. Brunazzi answers with serenity.
