Custom plant labels, flexible production saves time and cost

One of the biggest tree nurseries in Germany, zu Jeddeloh in Edewecht near Oldenburg, produces up to 90,000 plants a day on a large area of around 250 hectares. The business, established around 90 years ago, has 190 full-time employees plus seasonal workers; and supplies an international market, from garden wholesale to corporate chains such as DIY shops and plant dealerships.

Find solutions, share ideas and discuss EFI products with our global community of experts. Digital support is getting smarter at EFI with the introduction of the more robust, integrated support platform, EFI Communities.

Unlike most tree nurseries, zu Jeddeloh has its own marketing department, which provides customers with plant labels, point-of-sale (POS) materials, and advertisements. Uwe Horstmann, responsible for labels and POS marketing, explained that zu Jeddeloh wanted to offer customized plant labels to all their customers, instead of just a few, and to have the label production more flexible overall with less waste.

New workflow for effective on-demand printing

To handle on-demand printing of the plant labels, the company installed EFI Fiery JobFlow. This enables zu Jeddeloh to create several workflows specific to their needs, increasing productivity and reducing costs. Fiery JobFlow automates job preparation steps, compiling the data for printing customiszd plant labels from zu Jeddeloh’s customer database. This involves, for example, product images, text in the desired language, customer number, item number, customer logo, and price. The workflow also creates barcodes. With the use of the EFI imposition software, EFI Fiery Impose, the data is prepared on a printable PDF layout to further optimize the printing process. “This is a unique solution,” explains Horstmann. “According to my research, no other workflow would have been able to map this. An important element for building our workflow was that the label data can easily be connected to our marketing database.”
