MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN—(June 6, 2006)—Brady Corporation (NYSE: BRC) has introduced the MiniMark™ Industrial Label Printer, designed to provide an affordable, versatile sign- and label-making solution that takes up minimal space in work areas.

The Brady MiniMark sign and label printer allows facility managers to create signs, procedures, pipe markers, equipment identification, rack and shelving labels, and other general facility identification labels quickly and easily. Fast, cost-effective signs and labels specifically created at the point of need help companies increase safety, ensure compliance, and manage assets company-wide.

For crowded workspaces, the Brady MiniMark printer offers many features in a small unit. Continuous tapes offer labeling flexibility for a variety of applications, while the built-in cutter helps avoid material waste. The MiniMark printer can accommodate materials up to 4" wide, providing flexibility in creating bold, easily read signs and labels. The printer outputs up to three inches per second, so labels are ready to apply quickly. The MiniMark printer is available with parallel, serial, and USB connectivity to function in a variety of work environments.

Brady MarkWare™ Facility Identification Software makes it easy for users to create signs and labels on a PC and then print directly to the Brady MiniMark printer. With MarkWare software, users can access preformatted templates, pipe marker text and graphics, 1,000 safety symbols and industrial pictograms, and bar coding capabilities. The software also allows you to import logos, and other graphics in a variety of file formats.

With the Brady MiniMark printer, signs and labels can be created on the spot at a fraction of the cost of custom labels and signs that take days or weeks to arrive. For example, a 2-1/4" x 12" custom sign created on the MiniMark printer costs $0.94, compared with $9.55 from a custom sign shop. The per-sign cost savings make the MiniMark Industrial Printer a cost-effective tool offering immediate returns on the investment.

Purchasers of the Brady MiniMark printer can also take advantage of Brady’s Stress-Free Printer Set-Up program. This is a free program whereby Brady’s Technical Support Team will schedule a phone appointment for a complete step-by-step walk-through of printer set-up and software installation, plus a general overview of the printer’s capabilities. With Stress-Free Printer Set-up, new users can expect to be creating custom facility ID within two hours of their appointment.
