Bringing Labels to Life
When Eddie Gulmen established his business 15 years ago, his mission was to bring new technologies together with clients who were looking to expand their horizons in the rapidly evolving label and tag industry. Yet even with his entrepreneurial approach, Gulmen could hardly have imagined the ways in which his company would today be helping bring labels to life.
Label and Tag
Gulmen Digital has become renowned in the label and tag sector for its innovative approach and sound engineering skills, bringing a range of high-quality digital inkjet printing, and finishing equipment to market.
Headed by owner, engineer and passionate entrepreneur, Eddie Gulmen, the company has provided everything from entry-level solutions for businesses new to the sector, to advanced technologies which simplify production processes, lift productivity, cut waste…and deliver improved profitability.
For Gulmen, it’s the excitement of innovation and its potential for business which provides his motivation, driving Gulmen Digital’s transition from traditional processes into the digital age and, most recently, the establishment of a new arm, Gulmen Digital, to extend its reach into the virtual space.
“To be successful, businesses must have a growth mindset,” Gulmen explains. The label and tag sector continue to transform rapidly and businesses must innovate and change to continue to successfully meet the needs of the market.
“At Gulmen, we offer a range of solutions to help businesses meet their customers’ requirements, whether that be in label and tag production and finishing, adding encryption or security functionality to products, or launching into even deeper and more engaging experiences through augmented reality.”
Today, the company’s range of products includes everything from digital flexographic technology, to high-speed digital inkjet and digital finishing solutions, as well as the new augmented reality solutions based around its own Quantum Coder Automation (QCA) app, which will be a key feature on the company’s stand at the Label + Packaging Expo at the Sydney Showground in August.
Developed using patented Data On Things (DOT) technology, QCA can create innovative digital end-to-end solutions and business platforms which can add value by bringing marketing to life, improving security and even improving quality of life, Gulmen says.
“QCA allows us to quickly and easily integrate data into objects and images, providing a range of value-add solutions, creating employment recruiting talented team of marketing experts and savvy graphic design team.
The company offers website development and management, product brand development, software development.
For those interested in product verification and security and more we can add anti-copy technology for fraud prevention. Smart images, sounds and URL connections can link customers directly with information, instructions and other expanded options which enhance the experience and provide practical solutions to a range of business challenges. And AR, of course, provides added excitement, engagement and creative options for marketing and branding solutions, bringing labels to life.
We can even design customisable apps to suit specific purposes, and provide solutions for data collection and analytics, which allow businesses to tap into the power of data to build their success.
Visitors to the Label + Packaging Expo will also be able to see a range of production solutions including the new OKI Pro 1050 five-colour desktop label printer.
Using digital LED and dry toner technology, the OKI Pro 1050 offers CMYK plus opaque white, providing greater flexibility for printing on a range of standard, transparent or coloured label media up to 130mm in width.
“The OKI Pro 1050 is the ideal entry level printer for businesses new to the label printing market, or as a complementary solution for businesses looking to expand their product offering by adding label printing to their repertoire,” Gulmen says.
