Cut labelling costs with Epson’s in-house colour printing

Offering a wide variety of industries a new way of printing colour labels in-house, Epson has launched the TM-C3500 label printer. Using pigment ink, rather than dye-based ink, this label printer can create colourful, long-lasting labels that dry quickly and are smudge, water and fade resistant.

Designed for a range of manufacturing, chemical, healthcare, retail, and event industries, the Epson label printer allows businesses to create their own labels in-house, avoiding waiting times and the high costs of label manufacturers.

Individual DURABrite Ultra ink cartridges help save money as only the colour used needs to be replaced. Using this pigment ink ensures that the labels, barcodes, tags and tickets colour last longer, are more durable and are much sharper, compared to those printed using dye-based inks. The LCD screen allows users to easily monitor the printer status and know when each colour needs replacing.
