Epson CW-C6000 and TM-C7500 Printers: Multiple Versions to Fit Your Needs

Epson CW-C6000 and TM-C7500 Printers: Multiple Versions to Fit Your Needs

8th Nov 2022

Looking for a label printer that can handle all your printing needs? Check out the Epson CW-C6000 and TM-C7500/TM-C7500G 4-inch color label printers! These Epson ColorWorks printers are designed to work with either matte or glossy media (depending on the printer model) and can print up to 5 (CW-C6000) or up to 12 (C7500) inches per second.

Replace Your Black and White Thermal Label Printer with an Epson ColorWorks C6000 Color Label Printer

The CW-C6000 is the perfect printer for those who want to ditch their old black-and-white thermal label printers. With the CW-C6000, you'll be able to print color labels on demand -- no more boring black text and no more waiting for your color labels to be pre-printed! Not only that, but you'll also be able to print at resolutions up to 1200 dpi, so your labels will look sharp and professional.

The Epson CW-C6000 was specifically designed to replace thermal printers and includes all the features you need to make the switch, including:

  • Compatibility with ZPL II and SAP
  • Easy set-up and installation
  • Similar media handling capabilities and features
  • Comparable price point
  • Remote printer management
  • Windows, Mac, and Linux drivers (the Epson TM-C7500 only comes with Windows drivers)
  • Applicator I/O control port

Epson makes 4 versions of the Epson CW-C6000:

  • CW-C6000A Gloss (with automatic cutter)
  • CW-C6000A Matte (with automatic cutter)
  • CW-C6000P Gloss (with peeler)
  • CW-C6000P Matte (with peeler)

The "A" models come with an automatic cutter, while the "P" models include a peeler. The Epson CW-C6000P printers are ideal for installation into an assembly line since the peeler peels and presents each label so they can be effortlessly applied to the product.

The "Gloss" versions use a special ink formula engineered for glossy media, while the "Matte" versions use an ink formula that works well with matte media.

Generally speaking, if you need to print product labels, choose the Gloss version; if you need to print durable industrial labels, barcodes, shipping labels, GHS BS5609 chemical labels, or other types of labels that don't need a glossy finish, go with the Matte version.

Need a Faster Gloss or Matte Label Printer? Get the Epson TM-C7500/TM-C7500G Color Label Printer

If you're looking for a color label printer that can handle even more volume, then look at the Epson TM-C7500. The Epson TM-C7500/TM-C7500G 4-inch color label printer is the fastest in the ColorWorks line, printing at speeds up to 12 inches per second.

While both the CW-C6000 and TM-C7500 models print at 1200 dpi, the CW-C6000 printers are much slower due to their serial printheads. If print speed is important, then the Epson TM-C7500 models (for Windows only) may be the better choice.

Like the CW-C6000, the TM-C7500/TM-C7500G comes in Gloss and Matte versions. Epson's C7500 printers come with an auto cutter.
