a turnkey solution for designing and printing your tags

Angers (France), September 1st 2015 - Evolis, a worldwide leader in plastic card personalization solutions and printing systems, announces a one-of-its kind offering for managing and delivering price tags. This offering is tailormade for the food retail industry - retail store chains, catering professionals and local retail shops, including butchers, caterers, bakeries and cake shops, cheesemongers and fishmongers. This offering supports the specific requirements of each of those profiles and includes a flexible card design software tool shipped along the two ready-to-use solutions that are part of the offering.

A smart solution and a time-saver for the food retailers

Leveraging its unique solution for managing price tags, Evolis innovates, yet again, through an offering designed for food retailers. This user-friendly asset makes it possible to print tags on plastic cards, autonomously, allowing tags to be updated and replaced on demand, at the point of sale, by the unit or in runs.
With an offering that supports any requirement, Evolis intends to enhance its support to players in the food retail industry, by providing them with a simple method to design and update their product tags. This cost-efficient solution stands as a production tool that allows for major savings in time, improved responsiveness in managing tags and compliance with applicable European regulations.


Multifeature software for designing price tags

The cardPresso XS Price Tag Edition software provides adequate functionality and an intuitive user interface for designing price tags: users can take advantage of it with no prior training, while they derive benefits from enhanced content:

  • A large selection of templates available in 3 currencies (Euro, US Dollar and the British Pound),
  • A library of pictograms that illustrate multiple food products,
  • Product list samples (including product names, allergens, prices, etc.), available in an Excel format and linked to tag templates and pictograms,
  • A font that reproduces chalk handwriting,
  • A user guide for proficient use of the software.

The software comes with connectors to popular database formats, such as .XLS, .XLSX, CSV and .TXT, and supports the addition of a barcode or PLU (Price Look Up) code to the back of the tag. Staff simply needs to capture such codes on the weighing scale for immediate display of the purchased product’s price. Note that the software supports both Mac and Windows environments.

An all-in-one pack, including card printers

The price tag offering consists of two solutions, for single or dual-sided tag personalization, as required by users. Both solutions include a card printer with premium printing features and performances. Also included are the "cardPresso XS Price Tag Edition" software, black blank cards and a ribbon for printing tags that support contact with food products.

Full-fledged accessories

To extend this offering, Evolis provides a range of accessories for displaying tags on shelves and in display cabinets, depending on the product type and the environment: pickets, supports, claws and promotional stickers, are all available from Evolis distribution partners.

"With this modular offering, we provide the flexibility to support any requirement, while demonstrating our ability to innovate and showcasing our sound knowledge of the retail industry. Besides price tags, card plastics is also the key enabler for multiple applications such as loyalty cards, gift vouchers and employee badges, so that such requirements from retailers can be met in an improved and wider scope" said Christophe Peraudeau, Product Marketing Manager, Evolis.
