Epson Inkjet vs Thermal Transfer Label Printing


The ColorWorks Epson line of inkjet label printers is gaining in popularity.  At first, I was skeptical, but today, these are my printers of choice for most label printing applications.  There are many positives discussed in the video below, but like anything else, there are two sides to every story.

Is inkjet the end all be all?

No.  But, but they do have their place in the market.

I find myself always leading with the Epson printers. If the application only requires black and white print, then I fall back to the thermal transfer line of printers.  These inkjet label printers have come a long way in the past few years.  It is a challenge for companies who always printed in black and white to realize that now they have a choice.  Color opens up a ton of possibilities.
