Order Identification that Sticks

Improve customer interaction with Iconex Sticky Media. Comprised of two products in one—receipt paper and a pressure-sensitive label—Iconex Sticky Media provides a solution to efficiently label, identify and track goods all in one product and all with no liner to peel. It allows users to run what looks like a traditional paper roll through an enhanced POS printer.

Key features include:

  • Receipt and adhesive label combined
  • No label liner to discard
  • Drop-in printer loading
  • Label core made from 100% recycled stock
  • Customizable to suit your operations

  • As many as 2/3 of orders at quick-service restaurants are drive-thru orders
