Thermal printer store launch!

Standard

We decided earlier this year, that we’d like to launch Martel into the E-commerce world! After a bit of research, we got the gears in motion getting the store designed and our products onto the store.

Our online store – the thermal printer store, was officially launched on Thursday the 10th of September! Our first official order came in on Monday the 14th of September, and the commercial department were thrilled that all of our hard work has paid off. Since then, in the past 2 weeks we have been promoting on our social media platforms, and these are turning into sales at the store.

We have some really exciting offers and promotions coming up in the next few months, so please stay tuned to all of our social media accounts, which you can find at the bottom of our blog.

To continue our celebrations of the launch we want to offer you 5% off ALL paper rolls in the store, including our linerless label rolls. This offer will run until the 31st of October and all you have to do is enter the code HALLOWEEN at checkout. Also, if you are in the UK you can receive FREE next day delivery* on ALL orders over £35.00

*Please see our terms and conditions here

We are all really excited here at Martel, to see our store grow and also learn more about the E-Commerce world.

Born to Shop!

Standard

It’s quite fitting as the commercial manager of Martel to be writing this as it’s one of my favourite ever subjects, SHOPPING! We will soon be opening our online web store where thermal printers, paper rolls and other accessories can be purchased. We will keep you posted as to when the store is up and running, but for now estimate it to be mid-August. All products in the web store will be available for immediate shipping worldwide.

Speaking of worldwide shipping, once again in the month of June we’ve been global. Proudly made in the UK, and exported around the globe our shipping has taken us from North America, to China, to Australia to Europe and many places in between. You can see below the map of how our printers travel miles around the globe to varying sectors.

Map - June 2015Coming soon we’ll also have a range of helpful hints and tips when purchasing thermal printers. This will aid people who are unsure on power, communications, print media etc. We’ll be sure to keep you informed on our social media, website and of course the blog.

For now, I’m off to check out how the web store is coming along, but please leave a comment if you have any questions.

Experiencing issues with “Clean” thermal print outs?….

Standard

… Did you know that hand sanitizer is one of the worst chemicals that can come into contact with a thermal print out? It’s something that I was personally unaware of until I attended the Pittcon expo in New Orleans, back in March.

At the expo, I was having a conversation with some people who worked in a lab, and they were explaining the issue where they use hand sanitizer in their day to day routine, but if it connects with a thermal print out, the print becomes illegible.

Whilst Martel are experts at manufacturing thermal printers, we do not manufacture peripheral items such as paper rolls. We thought we’d talk to our friends at Max International and Merley Paper, and a solution was created.

Meet Tim and Sally:

We can now safely say that regardless of the environment of your device, whether it be in a lab, or working in a garage with oil, or any other harsh chemicals, the new thermal paper will withstand, and the print will be completely unaffected.

Martel will be back at Pittcon in 2016, and whilst we look forward to meeting with you there, if you’d like to talk to us in the meantime about a chemical you are using around thermal paper, or have a printing requirement in a harsh environment, then please contact us, all the links are below.

Until next time…..

Springing forward with new products

Standard

Spring has arrived at Martel HQ, the longer days, warmer (we hope) weather and the fact that each of the commercial team have a nice vacation to look forward to is definitely putting the spring in everyone’s step. Matt is visiting the US, and going to Glastonbury, Sharon is holidaying in Florida and Joanne has opted for a relaxing break in a cabin buried deep in the forest. Where are your 2015 holidays taking you this year? Are you going for adventure or chill out? A stay-cation or somewhere far flung? Where ever you go, we wish you a fantastic time, and hope to hear about it.

Speaking of globe-trotting, once again, in the month of April, Martel have supplied printers the world over. Check out the map below:

Coming very soon, we will have a video which will highlight some new products to enhance our thermal printers. We know the print out from your device is very important, and working in certain environments can be difficult to maintain the quality of that print out, well fear not, we have a solution. Stay tuned, and sign up to our e-bulletin here and we will reveal all……..

Later this month Matt will be visiting Autopromotec in Italy. This expo is for accessories and products in the automotive industry. We look forward to seeing some of our existing customers there. The automotive industry and the locations of the products for this market can be a very harsh environment (oil, chemicals etc.), you may want to stay tuned for the video, as I guarantee this will be of interest to you.

On that note, it’s back to lights, camera, action and we look forward to sharing our new thermal printer enhancements with you very soon.
