Color labels are the new standard

Today there is a growing demand for the use of color labels that feature color codes, photos and pictograms to highlight relevant information. This trend sharply drives up the number of label variations and increases label production complexity. Epson’s ColorWorks C3500’s ability to produce full color labels on demand makes it the ideal solution.

Advanced features only from Epson

Epson’s compact, four-color C3500 inkjet printer features fast printing speeds up to 4 inches/second, a banding reduction mode and a nozzle check system that produces a reliable output of high volume labels with excellent image quality. In addition, it offers multiple easy-to-use features such as an autocutter, easy paper loading and an LCD with printer status readouts.

Superior print and ink quality

Epson’s patented MicroPiezo® inkjet technology together with our DURABrite® Ultra Pigment ink ensures labels with crisp, clear, easy-to-read text and barcodes and vibrant graphics that resist smudges and water even on plain paper. And with the C3500 you can print on a wide range of media from plain, synthetic and matte to glossy stock. It handles roll-fed or fanfold, die cut or continuous label media.

Significantly lower your costs

With Epson’s C3500 printer you can dramatically reduce the cost of your label operations. Instead of maintaining an expensive inventory of preprinted labels, you can print the labels you need when you need them. In addition, the C3500 features individual ink cartridges for a more efficient use of ink and a very low cost of maintenance.

Reliable and flexible

Designed for high-duty commercial environments, the rugged C3500 is dust and water-resistant and built to last. It has an MTBF of 88 thousand hours.

Backed by the leader

The ColorWorks C3500 delivers the quality and reliability that Epson is known for and is backed by Epson’s industry- leading service and support programs.
