In House Label Printing

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here user printers from Primera (or any other vendor for that matter) when printing short runs? We've started to do single-barrel programs with local chains who invariably request special labels.  Short 300 label runs are cost prohibitive from our current vendor Blue Label (with whom we're very happy).   Anyone?

We have an Epson TM C-3500 and use blank labels from several sources.

Choose the Epson because it has individual color ink tanks.

Costs averaging about .20 per label excluding hardware.

Can you run die cut labels through it? How durable are the labels in terms of color fastness?

You can get die cut labels on rolls any size and 5 kinds of substrate from 1" x 1" to 4" x 8".

Color fastness (fading) seems very good, abrasion is good, convenience is best!

The poly based labels are very nice. These companies will send you samples. Durafast, Laser Inkjet Labels
