Theoretically at least, laser labeling seemed destined to be an instant hit with homeowners and small media production houses. Sadly, that didn't take place as hoped and the buzz surrounding the inkless labeling technology soon muted down…until now. Of all the probable explanations, the most compelling one would have to be the lethargic pace of adoption by media manufacturers.
