The Kiaro!® QL-120 Integrates Industry’s
Fastest Print Speeds with 1200 dpi Resolution for Exceptional Customer

AstroNova, Inc., (NASDAQ: ALOT), a global leader in data visualization
technologies, today announced that its QuickLabel® business unit has
launched the first of its second-generation Kiaro! digital inkjet color
label printers, the Kiaro! QL-120. The QL-120 combines high resolution
with the industry’s fastest print speeds, giving business owners a
powerful tool to produce professional-quality color labels in-house and
on- demand, at a fraction of the cost and time of outsourcing.

Built on AstroNova’s proven industry-leading Kiaro! digital color label
printing technology, the new QL-120 delivers enhanced print quality,
performance and reliability. With the QL-120, print speed has been
increased by 50 percent to 12” (305 mm)/sec and a new high-speed
auto-cutter is now standard. Other benefits include the ability to print
narrow widths as small as 0.5” (12.7 mm), seamless networking
capabilities and extended printhead life. At a resolution of 1200 dpi,
the printer ensures that even the smallest font sizes and images look
crisp, while superior color management capabilities yield brilliant,
true-to-life images. The QL-120’s durable ink formulation has an
exceptional color range and allows printing on a wider variety of
materials. Because the printed label is more resistant to water, oil,
and solvents, the QL-120 is ideal for a broad range of applications from
food and beverage, to chemicals, cosmetics, medical and industrial

“As the latest innovation in our ‘total solution’ product offerings, the
QL-120 exemplifies the long history of QuickLabel as a customer-centric
business focused on helping companies build great brands,” said
AstroNova President and CEO Greg Woods. “The QL-120 allows new and
existing customers to print vivid, compelling labels for their branded
products cost effectively, when they need them.”

The QL-120 is available for commercial shipments worldwide beginning
today. For more information, visit
