Epson is a leading printer manufacturer with several lines of dedicated label printers and innovative inkjet and thermal printing technologies. Within the Epson ColorWorks, SecurColor, and SurePress label printing families are numerous models designed for various purposes such as healthcare labeling, product labeling, and GHS-compliant labeling. Whether your budget is tiny or you have the means to invest in the most robust solution, there’s an Epson colour label printer for virtually every business need. For small and large businesses, the top 4 Epson label printers are listed below.
- Epson TM-C7500 color label printer (available in either matte or gloss) — If you need to print small 4-inch wide labels for your business, consider the Epson TM-C7500 (matte) or Epson TM-C7500G (gloss) colour label printer. The matte version prints on matte media and is suitable for printing durable GHS BS5609 industrial labels whereas the gloss version prints on glossy media and is designed for printing professionally branded product labels. Both versions of the Epson TM-C7500 colour label printer use pigment inks and print full-colour labels at high speed (up to 12 inches per second). The Epson TM-C7500 matte version is a popular choice among chemical and oil companies across Canada while the Epson TM-C7500G gloss version is popular with specialty food processors and beer and wine producers. The gloss version is also very popular for spice sellers and coffee and tea roasters who want vibrant colours on glossy paper or glossy synthetic labels made from polypropylene film. Epson TM-C7500 and Epson TM-C7500G colour label printers are extremely versatile, allowing you to print labels, event tickets, name badges, wristbands, and more.
- Epson GP-C831 colour label printer — The Epson GP-C831 colour label printer is a rugged 8.5-inch colour label printer offering the same versatility and print technology as the Epson TM-C3500 models but with a larger print size up to 8.5 x 22 inches. The Epson GP-C831 colour label printer is commonly used to print GHS BS5609-compliant chemical drum labels, fertilizer labels, pool chemical labels, and other large labels that are likely to come into contact with chemicals, water, or extreme environmental conditions. This affordable color label printer can also print pharmaceutical labels, tags, tickets, badges, banners, horticulture stakes, and other media using 8-pin, tractor feed label rolls or fan-folded sheets. Canadian oil producers in the west and chemical manufacturers and refiners across Ontario and Vancouver like to use the Epson GP-C831 to produce their chemical drum labels, fertilizer labels, pool chemical labels and paint container labels.
- Epson TM-C3500 color label printer – The Epson TM-C3500 colour label printer is a versatile 4-inch label printer for printing durable industrial labels, name badges, wristbands, and GHS BS5609 chemical labels. Its print speed reaches 4 inches per second, which is twice as fast as its predecessor the Epson TM-C3400. The Epson TM-C3500 label printer uses four individual color ink cartridges, helping to reduce ink waste and keep ink costs low.
The Epson TM-C3500 is one of the most popular printers in Canada due to its low purchase price and very low operating cost. It’s a must-have printer for bakers or food packaging companies that need to put colour logos with barcodes on their products along with ingredient labels. It’s also very popular with event management companies across Canada for printing attendee name badges. Both event management companies and hospitals love printing full-colour wristbands on them. Due to its size, it’s easy to transport to off-site events, allowing you to print name badges or wristbands for different occasions.
- Epson ColorWorks C6500A and C6500P colour label printers – The new Epson Colorworks C6500A and C6500P printers are an enterprise label producer’s new best friend. These 8-inch colour pigment inkjet printers are specifically designed to replace the black thermal transfer printers that have enterprises that have relied on up until now. The addition of colour in a reliable, affordable, comparably equipped label printer eliminates the need to purchase large volumes of pre-printed colour labels.
The above-noted printers are the top 4 printers we sell. However, we anticipate that in 2020, the Epson ColorWorks 6500A and C6500P will become the top seller in Canada. These new printers will start shipping in January 2020, and we think they are going to change the way large businesses print their labels. Basically, they will be able to replace all their black-and-white thermal transfer printers with these new Epson CW-C6500 colour inkjet label printer and print labels in full colour in a single process. These are the first 8-inch-wide label printers from Epson that will not only print at 1200 dpi but also include Windows, MAC OS and Linux drivers as well as easy deployment via built-in remote network management capabilities.
All of the above Epson color label printers offer exceptional value and low operating costs. They have one of the lowest ink costs per label in the industry along with easy management. They’re versatile, affordable, and built to last. Each, with the exception of the new C6500 printers, comes with a standard one-year depot warranty that can be upgraded if desired. The two Epson CW-C6500 printers have the choice of either Spare in the Air or Onsite Service warranties for terms of up to three years.
Whether you run a small or large business, these top 4 printers are just what Canadian businesses need.
