    Dedicated black/white data matrix system

    I'll take a look at Zebra. I want to be able to print out between 20K and 500K labels per day. I lose a lot of time transferring data files to Surepress, I would rather have a dedicated variable black and white printing machine/s.

    The Celebration

    Funny. This is how I felt for 10 years leading up to the pandemic. I didn't even realize most phone cameras have native reading capability. But in the last 6 months I have used QRcodes about 10 times (mostly contactless ordering). Does anyone think this is a resurgence or a quick flash in the pan?

    Print Variable Data PDFs
