Before he started Premier Markings, Gary Moody gained over 20 years of experience as a label salesperson. He sold labels from his office; production of labels was done by other companies. Premier Markings started in 2008. It started as a digital printing company and that was a deliberate choice. With his expertise, and with the trends in the market of labels, industry veteran Gary realized that if he were to start his manufacturing capability it had to be with digital printing. There was no place for a flexo press in the concept Gary’s Premier Markings. The company started with a low volume tabletop label printer, ideal for very short run labels of 500 pieces. Soon it became clear that a productive high-quality printing label press was needed to make the company a success. After researching the supplier market thoroughly, Premier Markings decided to buy a Xeikon 3030 in 2013. Gary comments: “Originally I was going to go for an HP labels press, but when I went to visit the Xeikon office in Chicago, the people there convinced me and gave me the sense that they would help me make it happen. Looking back now they really did!”
