Epson America (Los Alamitos, California) is expanding its media options to include label production for its popular ColorWorks on-demand colour label printers – including the ColorWorks C6000 and C7500 Series. Epson’s three media options (ColorWorks Durable Matte Synthetic Label, ColorWorks High Gloss Label and ColorWorks Premium Matte Label) will give ColorWorks customers access to a complete Epson solution. “Sourcing and testing label media can take a lot of time and effort, so we wanted to help our customers save time and hassle by offering a known media that works,” said Bonny Rindahl, Product Manager of Commercial Labels for Epson America. “Thoroughly tested for reliability and longevity with the C6000 and C7500 printers, the ColorWorks media offers photo-quality printing with clear and scannable barcodes, QR codes and more.
