On-Demand Color Label Printing

Reduce labeling costs – print your own color labels

Print Beautiful Full Color Labels On-Demand, As You Need Them

More and more companies involved in manufacturing, distribution, and e-commerce are utilizing on-demand color label printing technologies to print their own color labels for packaging, product identification, warehouse location, and GHS labels.  With the increasing affordability of digital inkjet color label printers and color inkjet label media, the benefits of adding color to your label printing processes become even more obvious.

What Is On-Demand Color Label Printing?

It’s simple – you can now easily incorporate color into your label printing. It can be color bars or stripes for simple identification purposes, or full color images for product labeling or packaging.  You print the labels using special digital inkjet color label printers and the printed color labels do not fade, discolor, or smear – even when exposed to abrasion or moisture.

Advantages of Printing Color Labels On-Demand
Print On Demand Reduces Overall Labeling Costs
Printing your own color labels as you need them eliminates the need to buy large quantities of pre-printed labels that you have to inventory, and may never use. By eliminating wasteful pre-printed label inventory, costs and errors are reduced, streamlining your overall labeling operations.
Flexibility For Your Labeling Requirements
On-demand color label printing systems can produce high-quality color labels for a variety of applications. It’s an ideal solution for both high volume label printing and lower volume, high value products or SKUs. It also enables you to adapt to and incorporate changing regulatory requirements on your printed labels. Since you print your color labels only as you need them, you can make changes as needed without wasting any labels.
Make Your Labels More Powerful and Useful
Adding color to your printed labels has numerous advantages. Using color labels for packaging of products significantly enhances your brand, increasing your sales and profitability. Adding color to labels can also be used as a visual identifier for location, contents, order fulfillment and handling - streamlining your operations, reducing errors, and increasing productivity.
Easy To Use and Integrate
It’s not much different than standard thermal label printing. To get started, all you need is an industrial color inkjet label printer, the appropriate label media and ink, and label design and printing software. The Epson ColorWorks C6000 series color inkjet label printers are also ZPL-compatible, so they offer seamless integration and can easily replace existing thermal label printers that utilize ZPL.
Speed and Reliability
Today’s color inkjet label printers are built to withstand the demands of industrial color label printing. They print labels quickly and reliably, even in high duty cycle applications.
