ALLSPARK WINNER: The Leitz Icon is a new adhesive label printer for consumer and business applications, and these are the consumable label cartridges that drop into the printer. Each cartridge contains a 22 meter long label roll, and they come in four widths. The cartridge functions as both the cartridge body as well as its own protective shipping box, and is attached to a removable hangtag for retail purposes. The hangtag is a one size fits all solution that can be used for all four cartridge sizes. Each cartridge has a green colored print head interface part that flips up to start the paper roll and to reveal a media info chip so the printer can automatically identify roll size and type. The cartridges are made from recycled paper pulp and recycled plastic. After use, the cartridges are entirely recyclable.
