Do You Need to Print in Colour?

For years, colour label printing in-house was considered too expensive, and most businesses ordered colour labels from print service providers. This meant paying setup and die charges as well as ordering a minimum quantity, which often resulted in ordering far more labels than needed. Thankfully, affordable colour label printers are changing all of that, and Optimedia Labs has the best selection of colour label printers from the leading manufacturers.

Cost of Ownership

How should you gauge cost of ownership? These colour label printers come in an array of sizes, and all have varying price points. The initial cost isn't the only one to consider. For example, Primera has a much lower initial investment, but requires more frequent replacements for the ink cartridges than some of the other models. The Afinia L801 has a higher purchase price, but offers a low per label cost, which tends to pay for itself if you print large quantities of labels.
