See how the New Epson Color Works will change the CW-C6500 Enterprise Label Printing

The new year is coming and with it are plans for personal and work improvement. Come January 2020, Epson’s new Color Works CW-C6500 color label printer will arrive, it will be a perfect addition to the fleet of your enterprise label printers.

A large number of label printing companies rely on a large fleet of heat transfer printers and pre-printed color label stock to produce their color labels historically. The pre-printed stock has blanks that are then printed with a black heat transfer printer. This allows for some customization but has some limitations as you can imagine.

For example, where do you find pre-printed label stock in the first place? Probably through a third party printing service provider. It bears the cost of setup and die. It usually also requires a large minimum order. If the labeling requirements change, pre-printed labels need to be discarded. Meanwhile, employees must constantly manage the label list. If these pre-printed labels run out, it will cause some serious downtime until new labels are ordered, printed, shipped, and delivered.

The Epson Color Works CW-C6500 label printer is designed to replace thermal transfer printers.

This is where the Epson CW-C6500 color label printer flashes. Not only does this allow companies to print in full color, it also does so on demand. No need to order, save, manage or potentially destroy pre-printed labels. The Epson CW-C6500 color label printer comes in two versions, one with an auto cutter (CW-C6500A) and one pillar (CW-C6500P). Both have 8-inch Color Works Label printers with media handling capabilities and connection options that compare favorably as the top heat transfer printers currently in use in today’s enterprise label printing environment.

Many of the features of the Epson CW-C6500 color label printer include:

This printer and its 4-inch siblings are ready to transform the enterprise label printing industry in 2020.
