Epson introduces Matte Black Ink for On-Demand Color Label Printers

04 March 2021: With the addition of the ColorWorks C6000-Series printers with matte black ink, Epson is expanding its on-demand color label printing options. The ColorWorks C6000-Series – CW-C6500P, CW-C6500A, CW-C6000P and CW-C6000A – now offer both gloss and matte ink options.

According to Epson officials the new matte black ink is especially suited for warehouse and manufacturing environments printing shipping or barcode labels. ColorWorks C6000-Series customers now have the option to choose from gloss black UltraChrome DL ink or matte black UltraChrome DL ink, which are both BS5609 certified1 and highly durable pigment-based inks. In comparison, the gloss black ink is designed to print on a wider variety of substrates while the matte black ink offers darker black text and images on matte media. The same cyan, magenta, and yellow inks are used with both blacks.

“Many businesses are realizing the traditional, two-step printing process that consists of purchasing thousands of pre-printed labels and adding variable black text via monochrome thermal printing is outdated and inefficient,” says Bonny Rindahl, product manager, Commercial Labels, Epson America.The ColorWorks CW-C6500P, CW-C6500A, CW-C6000P and CW-C6000A are engineered for mission-critical applications and are the first printers specifically designed as a color upgrade to black-only thermal transfer printers. The CW-C6500P and CW-C6000P are the first ever color inkjet printers to support peel-and-present capabilities for fast hand or automated label application. The CW-C6500A and CW-C6000A include an auto cutter to create variable length labels and enable easy job separation.

The ColorWorks C6000-Series on-demand color label printers in matte and gloss options, as well as supplies, are available through authorized resellers. A video featuring the warehousing labeling capabilities can be found on Epson’s YouTube.
