As a small business owner, you're well-versed in the art of multitasking. So, when it comes to finding a label printing solution, you need a printer that's just as dynamic and versatile as you are. 

Get Started with On-Demand Color Label Printing

On-demand label printing allows companies of all sizes to print their own high-quality color labels for a wide range of applications. Since you’re able to print the exact number of color labels you need as you need them, on-demand label printing offers a smart way to reduce costs, eliminate waste and streamline operations.  

Best of all, with today’s inkjet color label printer technology, it’s convenient and more affordable than ever to print labels in-house for packaging, product identification, warehouse location and GHS labels.  

If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of dealing with a faulty office printer, you know that not all printers are created equal. Speed and reliability matter, especially in high duty cycle industrial applications. 

Here at General Data, we’ve curated a selection of high-quality and cost-effective color label printers intended for companies like yours. 

Take a closer look at some of our most popular color label printers:

Upgrade to the World of Color Labels: Epson® ColorWorks C6000

Ready to upgrade from pre-printed labels and a thermal label printer that only prints in one color (black)? The Epson CW-C6000 is a great option for you. 

The Epson C6000 is one of the first color inkjet label printers to offer ZPL II (Zebra Programming Language) compatibility, meaning it can be a “plug-and-play” color label printing replacement for your existing Zebra one color thermal label printers. Fast, cost-effective and easy to use, the Epson C6000 prints both stunning color images and the variable data you need — all in one pass.

You can use the C6000 color label printer for common applications, including:

  • GHS labels
  • Product and Packaging labels
  • Craft beer and craft beverage labels
  • Specialty coffee labels
  • Food labels
  • Warehouse location labels

Print Wide Format Color Labels In-House: Epson ColorWorks C6500

Need to print in a wide format for GHS (Globally Harmonized System) labels or chemical drum labeling applications? Count on the durable Epson CW-C6500 wide-format color label printer! 

Printing large format GHS labels in-house presents a unique set of challenges. You need a wide-format color label printer that’s rugged and reliable in harsh environments such as the bustling production floor, warehouse or shipping dock. 

To adhere to rigorous compliance standards, GHS labels and chemical container labels also need to remain legible and intact even when exposed to moisture, abrasion, chemicals and UV rays. Not just any color label printer will do! 

The C6500 color label printer uses next-generation PrecisionCore® print technology combined with Epson's UltraChrome inks to deliver outstanding durability, precision and color clarity — often exceeding the durability printed thermal transfer labels can offer. 

When used with approved label stock, the labels printed with the Epson C6500 and UltraChrome inks are BS5609-certified, making them the ideal solution for printing GHS labels and other chemical drum labels in-house, on demand.
