Get to Know the Epson CW-C6500 Printer

9th Nov 2022

Do you need an 8-inch color label printer for your business, or thinking about upgrading from a black-and-white thermal label printer? If so, the Epson CW-C6500 should be at the top of your list. This printer is designed as a color replacement for thermal printers, allowing businesses to create high-quality, full-color labels quickly and easily. Here's a closer look at the Epson CW-C6500 and all that it has to offer.

Available in Four Versions

The CW-C6500 is available in four versions:

  • CW-C6500A Gloss (with automatic cutter)
  • CW-C6500A Matte (with automatic cutter)
  • CW-C6500P Gloss (with peeler)
  • CW-C6500P Matte (with peeler)

The difference between the "A" and "P" versions is that the "A" versions have an automatic cutter, while the "P" versions have a peeler. The difference between the "Matte" and "Gloss" versions is, of course, the type of finish on the labels. The Matte versions use matte labels for a more subdued look and greater durability and resistance to water, oil, abrasions, and chemicals, while the Gloss versions use glossy labels for a more eye-catching finish.

Prints Up to 8" Wide

One of the best features of the CW-C6500 is that it can print labels up to 8" wide. This gives you a lot of label design flexibility and allows you to print labels of nearly any size and shape, including large-format chemical drum labels.

Prints at Up to 12 ips

The CW-C6500 can print at up to 5 ips -- that's 30 feet per minute! This makes it perfect for businesses that need to print high volumes of labels quickly.

High Quality Color Label Printer

With its 1200 dpi and Epson PrecisionCore TFP printhead technology, the CW-C6500 produces high quality prints with fine details and smooth edges. This makes it ideal for printing labels with barcodes, logos, and other graphics.

Fleet Printing Tools

The Epson CW-C6500 is designed as a color replacement for thermal printers and includes several features that make it ideal for fleet printing. For example, it has remote management tools that allow you to monitor and manage your printer fleet from a central location. It also has a general purpose I/O port that can connect the printer to other peripherals.

Comparably Priced to Thermal Printers

Despite its many features and benefits, the CW-C6500 is comparably priced to thermal label printers. This makes it an affordable option for businesses upgrading from a black-and-white thermal label printer to a color model.
