Mad Card Factory – A Leader in the Card Industry
“THE NEW EZ-INKJET PRINTS WITH DOUBLE THE QUALITY AND USES HALF THE INK, WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LIKE?” WALTER GARCIA, OPERATIONS MANAGER
Mad Card Factory, a division of Mad Studios Company, is a leader in the manufacturing + fulfillment + mailing of phone cards, gift cards, loyalty cards based in South Florida. Mad Card Factory has been running Datacard/CPST lines for many years with DOD GT-JET 64 inkjets for high volume card personalization. “With over a decade of card personalization experience, we want to be ahead of the curve in inkjet technology and we want to continuously improve our cost structure. I can only say the eZ-Inkjet blew away our expectations since it was installed more than 12 months ago. We can print consistent high-quality text and barcodes with this 600 dpi inkjet using only half as much ink as before. The inkjet head easily fit on our existing Datacard machine and it operates with our familiar GT System Controller. The ink adhesion to our substrates has only been enhanced with the new eZ-Inkjet printer ink. Soon we plan on going to LED curing lamps to save on electricity and be greener”, said Walter Garcia.
“Mad Card Factory was a natural fit to test our eZ-Inkjet high-res printer, as they are innovative, they run their lines at the high production rates, they use cameras and barcode graders checking the quality of every product in real-time, and they want the best adhesion on their cards, plus they are located right here in South Florida”, said Markus Portmann, President of Graph-Tech USA. “Our eZ-Inkjet is proudly Made in the U.S.A. at our factory here in Florida, and we are even planning a ‘build your own first inkjet’ program so that a customer can become an expert and be fully independent with their eZ-Inkjet.”
Markus continues, “The higher print resolution allows for printing micro-text, with a lower cost of ownership, with field-replaceable jettings, and seamless integration with our GT controller makes replacing the GT-JET 64 with an eZ-Inkjet a no-brainer. The eZ-inkjet is available in two versions: a 54mm (2.13”) or a 108mm (4.26”) print width with 600 dpi native resolution, and it is ideally suited for printing variable information and barcodes on mail, labels, cards, tags, and on a wide variety of substrates.
Mad Card Factory recently upgraded from a 54mm eZ-Inkjet to a 108mm head and they are extremely happy with the quality, performance and support provided by GTUS.
