“The industry recognizes the benefits of on-demand color label printing, but we also know it can be difficult to make the transition from a black-only thermal transfer printing process that is already set up in the current workflow,” said Andy Scherz, senior product manager, Commercial Label Printers, Epson America, Inc. “This new family of ColorWorks on-demand label printers provides an easy transition for customers looking to make that vital switch, with similar media handling capabilities, speed, features, and connectivity options that deliver seamless integration with existing workflows, so customers can get up and running with a new, more colorful system, fast.”

ColorWorks C6000A, C6000P, C6500A, and C6500P feature up to 1200 dpi resolution. Compatible with ZPL II, SAP® and more, and built to accommodate remote printer management, these versatile color label printers offer seamless integration with an existing workflow. The ColorWorks C6000 family delivers a comprehensive range of capabilities to meet the requirements of the most common thermal transfer applications. They cover the full spectrum of label sizes, C6000P and C6500P support peel-and-present capabilities for fast hand or automated label application, and C6000A and C6500A include an auto cutter to create variable length labels and enable easy job separation.

The new ColorWorks color label printers deliver dependable, commercial inkjet printing with fast-drying, durable color inks, and enhanced productivity, while offering cost and inventory reduction compared to using pre-printed labels.
