Timberstar Introduces New Printer
Just when it looks like expensive inkjet printing is the only option for one-location stamp placement, Timberstar has invented the SIX-PAK Rotary Printer. An onboard state-of-the-art computer that requires only standard inputs from existing computers to operate, powers this printer. With six stamps and three available colours on each print head, the new SIX-PAK promises to be an economical solution to trouble-prone inkjet systems. www.timberstar.bc.ca. Reader Service Card #5073
