Epson® ColorWorks® C6000 and C6500 Color Inkjet Label Printers:

The ABILITY To Add COLOR To Your Mission Critical Label Printing

Enterprise label printing just took a giant step forward with the new Epson ColorWorks C6000 and C6500 color inkjet label printers. The first inkjet label printers specifically designed as a color upgrade to black-and-white thermal transfer printers1, the ColorWorks C6000 and C6500 deliver on-demand color labels at a comparable price2. Engineered for mission-critical applications, these reliable printers speed through labels at up to 5" per second3. Featuring print resolution quality up to 1200 dpi, they produce crisp full-color images comparable to pre-printed labels. Compatible with ZPL II, SAP® and more, and built to accommodate remote printer management, these versatile printers offers seamless integration with your existing workflow.

There are many benefits to adding color to your printed labels, including eliminating your pre-printed label inventory, creating more effective labels, and enhancing your brand. Now its easy and even more cost-effective to add color to your existing label printing processes without having to alter your existing network, sacrifice print quality, or worry about printer downtime.

The Epson C6500 and C6000 are one of the first color inkjet label printers to offer ZPL II (Zebra Programming Language) compatibility for enterprise-level label printing. They can be used as a direct “plug and play” replacement for your existing thermal label printers running ZPL. If you are ordering pre-printed labels and running them through thermal label printers to print variable data, the new Epson C6000 and C6500 color inkjet label printers can easily replace your existing thermal label printers and print both the color images and the variable data all in one pass – eliminating the need for you to carry an inventory of preprinted labels. Running SAP? The Epson ColorWorks C6500 and C6000 offers out-of-the-box integration with SAP.

Depend-ABILITY and Mission Critical-ABILITY

The Epson C6000 and C6500 color inkjet label printers are built tough, and are able to withstand the rigors of mission-critical label printing – on the production floor, on the shipping dock and in the warehouse. Just like your existing thermal label printers, you can depend on the Epson C6500 and C6000 series color inkjet label printers to reliably print labels for your mission-critical labeling needs with minimal downtime. And they are backed up by Epson’s robust ExpressCare™ service program, with options for onsite and depot service, and extended warranty programs.

Color Label-ABILITY

The Epson ColorWorks C6000 and C6500 produce crisp high-resolution color output using PrecisonCore CMYK pigment ink printing technology. The printed color image is very durable and able to withstand handling, abrasion, moisture and resist fading. There are 5 print quality settings with resolutions up to 1200 x 1200. The Epson Colorworks C6000 label printer prints color labels from 1” to 4.25” wide and is ideal for printing color product labels, identification labels and location labels. The Epson ColorWorks C6500 label printer prints color labels from 1” up to 8.34” wide. Its perfect for printing 6” color labels, 8” chemical drum GHS labels, and 2-up color labels.


The Epson C6000 and C6500 color inkjet label printers offer peel and present or automated cutter options. The peel and present option makes labeling easier by enabling operators to send a large batch print job and the printer prints one label at a time with the liner already removed. The “label taken” sensor senses when the operator takes the label before it prints the next one. The remote I/O capabilities enable these printers to easily integrate with automated label applicators for a true “print-one-apply-one” automated workflow.
