On-demand and colour label printing
The popularity of unique and limited products is increasing year by year. Poles have fallen in love with healthy food and regional products. This is why carefully hand-packed products are valued much more highly than those that come straight from an automatic, industrial production line. If we add a personalised label, the customers receive a perfect product, dedicated only to them. Just how to achieve this and, above all, does it have to significantly increase the price of a product?
The answer is colour label printers
The development of technology, increasingly user-friendly interfaces, ease of use and reliability make digital label printers more and more popular. They are used successfully in many industries and by an increasing number of users.
There are several factors behind the decision to choose colour printers for short runs, including:
- friendly technology
- ease of printing giving you the opportunity to differentiate your product from the competition
- cost-effectiveness (investment in equipment that makes it possible to print on demand)
- no delays due to outsourcing of printing
- lack of excessive and unnecessary stock of labels.
While making a decision about purchasing an on-demand printing device, it’s worth considering a target label format and daily printing volume. It will enable you to find an appropriate device that will meet your needs. Colour label printers of leading manufacturers such as TrojanLabel, QuickLabel and EPSON can be used with a wide range of media. Paper or foil labels with a matte or glossy finish will make the product significantly more recognizable.
The EPSON C3500 printer is certainly a perfect solution for beginners and users who are sensitive to the purchase price. It will also prove particularly useful as an alternative solution.
This little printer will enable you to obtain satisfactory printouts on both matte and glossy media. Easy operation and LCD display that informs the user about the status of ink and printer on an ongoing basis.
