At the NRF 2019 Retail's Big ShowEpson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, announced it has added three new branded MAXStick media solutions from MAXStick International, a leading provider of liner-free, repositionable thermal label products, to Epson's "tested" media list for its TM-L90 Plus liner-free compatible (LFC) thermal label printers. Use of these tested labels in the Epson TM-L90 Plus LFC printers helps give customers in retail and hospitality the confidence that print quality, print head life and warranty coverage will be maintained. It also helps improve order accuracy and efficiency by improving workflows and reducing errors.

The addition of the MAXStick X2 Full Coverage Adhesive - MS214290X2, MAXStick2GO Diamond Adhesive Formation - MS2143852GOPLUSD, and MAXStick Plus Diamond Adhesive Formation - MS318290PLUSD to the Epson's TM-L90 Plus LFC printer, enables customers in QSR, retail and hospitality to quickly print order details and add appropriate labels to orders so food service operators can easily ensure that the right order is delivered to the right consumer, improving order accuracy and efficiencies. The company had previously certified the 74gsm MAXStick Plus Diamond Adhesive Formation 58mm width roll, and the 55gsm 2GO 4 Stripe Adhesive 80mm width roll.

"We are proud to be able to provide our customers with additional media solutions that Epson has placed on its list of tested media," said Mike Vigunas, president at MAXStick.
