Plastic card personalisation system firm Evolis has launched the Edikio Guest solution for creating and printing and buffet labels in seconds.
The French manufacturer has produced a unit that prints buffet labels on durable, washable cards which display all necessary information, such as the name, nutritional ingredients or allergens, in single or multiple languages.
Aimed at allowing smoother traffic flow at the buffet, the solution comprises a card printer, card design software, a white print ribbon, and blank black plastic cards.
Said to be easy to operate, enabling site staff to create cards onsite and print them in 15 seconds, the Edikio Guest comes in two versions. Edikio Guest Access prints monochrome single-sided labels and tags in credit card-sized format in low volume.
While Edikio Guest Flex prints long-format labels (5.90″ x 1.97″) and credit card-sized labels to accommodate various display requirements, in monochrome and colour with claimed high print quality.
The design software aims to have an intuitive interface and creation wizard which allow the user to create new cards in a few clicks. It includes a library of over 200 card templates and more than 350 pictograms for customising buffet labels and tags.
Evolis offers monochrome (including gold and silver) and colour ribbons, a range of cards in different formats and colours, and a variety of tag holders.
Nathalie Clement, Edikio Guest marketing manager at Evolis, said: “When we tested this solution in the hotel industry, restaurant and hotel managers confirmed the added value that such a solution could offer for their facilities. It allows hotels to ensure clear communication with their customers, to distinguish themselves from their competitors, and to enhance their brand image with a high quality and affordable support.”
