47 PROFILE JPT EUROPE LTD / KING JIM +44 (0)20 7839 4839 brand POKETO and released new tapes. Please check our homepage for the latest information. How would you advise a retailer who is interested in stocking your products? We have a starter set of the TEPRA Lite label printer with three tapes, which is good value. The printer itself might be a bit pricey but once you have loyal customers, you can expect a repeat purchase for tapes. What sets you apart from your competitors? There are some similar products on the market but the quality is guaranteed by the brand KING JIM, as they specialise originally in office-use label printers. I can also add that all designs are created by in-house designers, and they’re very cute - Kawaii in Japanese! If you can’t satisfy with the preinstalled illustrations, that would be very disappointing, wouldn’t it? Do you visit any trade shows? Do you plan to visit any soon? We exhibit at the London Stationery Show every year. What are you looking forward to most over the next year? I hope to introduce the TEPRA Lite label printer to many markets (not just stationery), such as arts and crafts shops. I’m looking forward for this item to be discovered and useful to everyone who loves to labels. What new products can we expect from you in the future? Japanese companies launch new items very quickly so I can’t answer this question. But I promise that you can expect new products you’ve never seen before. Please check our B2B website for updates.
