If you're looking for a color label printer for your small business without purchasing an additional applicator this is the printer for you.
Inkjet Label Printer
This unique color label printer peels-and-presents the labels for manual application. The label sensor holds off the print job until the label is removed. This allows the labels to be taken as soon as they are printed.
The Epson CW-C6000P is one of Epson's first printers to offer the peel-and-present capability which helps speed up manual applications for your businesses on-demand labels. The built in label senor holds off printing until the label is removed. This eliminates the needs for a loose loop and allows for individual labels to be used as soon as they are printed. The peel-and-present also works with an automated application system and can be programmed to print as soon as the label is taken.

The Epson CW-C6000P label printer is great for printing inkjet labels with fast-drying durable color inks. This is ideal for businesses that have to print label without committing to large setup costs with pre-printed labels from third-party printing companies.
If you have labels designs that exceed 4.25" in both length and width, the Epson CW-C6500P would be a better suited choice for your business. It is rated to print up to 8 inches wide and comes in either the peel and present feature or auto-cutter.
With the ability to print smudge-free color labels on demand the CW-C6000P is great for producing labels right off the printer. The peel-and-present feature is great for manual application and the sensor detects when the label is removed. This feature is great for a fully automated label application system.
