It should come as no surprise that shipping volumes have increased due to the pandemic. Stay-at-home orders and changed consumer behaviors have more people than ever ordering goods online. By the end of April, eCommerce shipments had increased 47 percent. Chances are, your shipping label printer is getting a workout. You’re likely ordering more rolls of labels and thermal transfer ribbons than you did this time last year. And, you may be thinking it’s time to invest in a new and improved shipping label printer.
However, should you get a thermal transfer printer like before or make the switch to an inkjet label printer?
The new Epson CW-C6500P color label printer is an 8-inch industrial label printer that’s also right at home in any shipping department — especially if you need to print larger labels. That said, it also prints narrow labels and barcodes. Even better, it does so in full color, allowing you to brand your shipping labels with color logos and other branding elements. Or, as you’re packaging your items for shipment, you could use the Epson CW-C6500P color label printer to print color labels, coupons, or instructions to affix to tissue paper, product boxes, and other packaging elements.
Because the Epson CW-C6500P color label printer comes with a peeler, your label is ready to be peeled off its backing when you’re ready for it. This can make packaging and shipping orders faster and more efficient.
This is but one of many potential use cases for the Epson CW-C6500P color label printer. We also have this same printer available without the peeler but with an auto cutter (Epson ColorWorks C6500A) if you prefer. Learn more about the different Epson ColorWorks printers here.
