With the recent surge of breweries, bars and restaurants all over offering up unique craft beer selections, customers have a growing demand for their favorite brew. What was once a brew you could only enjoy at the facility in which it was manufactured; customers are now given the option to take their favorite beer home in a growler. The heavy glass structure of the growler is the go-to option for packaging beer directly from a keg.
Inkcups Now has the ideal machine to print customized labels, logos, or images directly onto the growler. The M-25 screen printing machine from Inkcups Now is the one and only machine built for growlers. The M-25 was designed to be a heavy, robust machine that can handle large cylindrical parts that are heavy in weight. This screen printing machine can print on large diameter bottles of nearly any size!
The growler market is completely untapped! There are few printers available for growlers and those who own an M-25 screen printing machine is one step ahead of the competition. There is growing demand for customized growlers, yet not enough screen printing machine shops with the right equipment to fill that demand.

Customized iPhone cases and the XJET seem like a match made in heaven! This industrial inkjet printer is capable of printing a ton of these at a very rapid pace (about 20 cases in 90 seconds!) One of the best parts about printig on the XJET is that it can handle variable data. Meaning you don’t have to print and entire bed of cases with the same image, you are capable of changing images, text, and coloring per piece!
The XJET is a UV LED printer, and this ink adheres like no other! We have taken a razor to the ink right out of the machine and it holds strong. This ink is cured instantly on the machine by a UV LED light, meaning it cures at very low temperatures. So lets say you would like to print on special iPhone cases that contain electronics such as a backup battery, well a typical UV light would heat that case up and potentially damage the electronics contained inside. With a low temp LED light, you will never worry again because there is no risk of overheating. You could even print directly onto the iPhone!
The smartphone industry is continuously growing, there are 5 billion mobile phone users around the world. That’s a lot of phones that require a case! The XJET industrial inkjet printer is the one and only machine that is capable of handling a high volume of prints while maintaining a high resolution of 1200dpi.

Inkcups Now is excited to announce our featured article in plasticsnews.com. The President of Inkcups Now was interviewed for the piece about our recent move to a larger location.
Here is a preview:
Inkcups Now Corp. started the year in a new 26,000 square foot facility designed for efficiency that allows it to consolidate its headquarters, production and warehouse in one place.
“This gives us a launching board to develop new products, and focus on technical and customer services,” said President Ben Adner, in a telephone interview.
The Danvers, Mass., company is a supplier for the pad printing, garment tag printing and specialty inkjet printing industry.
Adner said the new building more than doubles its capacity. The company had been located in Danvers about a mile away, occupying space in three different buildings.
