Local French favorite confectionery, Domaine De Baudry, uses a QuickLabel® QL-300 to efficiently print premium, high-quality confectionery labels on-site.
In the quaint town of Saint-Hilaire de Pionsat, located in the heart of the Auvergne region, in a scenic, charming village, you’ll find Domain De Baudry. A multi-generational family-owned marmalade and confectionary company, equipped with an on-site factory, store, museum, and restaurant, Baudry is a local favorite.
Making and packaging their regional products all in-house requires a reliable, quality, labeling solution.
Vincent Bône, Baudry’s Company Manger, speaks highly of the company legacy and products.
Bône’s father was a farmer and started the company in the 1970s on a raspberry plantation, where Baudry still resides today. Once a small operation, today, they have more than 150 varieties of jams. With the introduction of the QuickLabel QL-300, a five-color toner-based label printer, Baudry can now quickly and effectively label their products.
Small Batches and Efficient Labeling
“Before we got the QL-300, we used laser-color photocopiers with cutouts – very tedious work. The printers we worked with had problems with deadlines, quantity, and with stock”, said Bône. “When I saw the QL-300, I thought it was the machine we needed.”
Using local whole fruits, all-natural flavors and traditional, family recipes, Baudry creates, labels, and sells a variety of products. From marmalades to wines, beers, honey, and a wide selection of oils, Baudry needs a reliable labeling solution suitable for a full line of products.
“…The QL-300 allows us in small quantities and in a flexible way, to make rolls and adapt them to our automatic labelers. So it’s rather simple to make labels with the QL-300”, says Bône.
Baudry prides itself on seeking the “good taste of our childhood.” Since the family takes a lot of pride in crafting these gourmet products, and their branding holds a lot of significance, they needed a solution that wouldn’t cause label wear or tarnishing over time. Because jam has a long shelf life, label durability was a priority to the family when searching for a labeling solution. Luckily, they were able to find that required durability with the QL-300. Says Bône, “what’s nice about the QL-300 is that it allows us to go farther in the offer we can make to our customers, so now we can offer Kraft labels, transparent labels, and completely white labels.”

During a trip to Denmark, AstroNova met with MultiMarketing in Kolding, Denmark, to see how they use their TrojanLabel® T4 to meet customer demands.
MultiMarketing, a commercial printer, owns a TrojanLabel® T4, a robust, stand-alone, advanced label printing finishing press, which they use for printing quality, branded products for a variety of customers.
Originally started fifteen years ago from a kitchen table, Palle Østergaard, Director, struck out to make MultiMarketing different than other printers in the industry by focusing on small-quantity, high-speed production. “When we first saw the T4, we were really excited,” says Østergaard. “We could put a roll on the T4, print on it, laminate it, cut it in the right pieces, and roll it up….we have cut our production time from a couple of days to just one day.”
Flexible Packaging Solution
From flexible packaging requests, such as water bottles, bags of chips, candies, and snacks, to a variety of other promotional products like stickers, companies depend on MultiMarketing to create quality, branded advertising materials. With rapid transitions between productions, MultiMarketing can provide thorough, speedy, quality assurance.
Having the T4 on-site allows for quick turn-around time on orders for customers. They pride themselves on their ability to meet customer demands, typically on the same day, and produce high-quality products, which they attribute to the addition of the T4 to their production line.
Kenneth Bryhl, Head of Marketing, attributes the T4 to its production efficiency and product durability. “Now we can do everything in one run,” says Bryhl. “The durability is very important to us because we print on so many different products.”
With their materials stored on-site, MultiMarketing is always ready to print. Ease-of-use, color quality, and the intuitive TrojanControl software installed on all TrojanLabel products are just some of the key features MultiMarketing values in the T4.
