Epson TM-C7500 GHS Weaknesses
The Epson TM-C7500 has a few potential drawbacks you should know about:
• Vibrancy of the colors – Pigment-based inks are less vibrant than dye-based inks, so the color labels produced by the Epson TM-C7500 aren’t as vivid and bold as those produced by a color label printer using dye-based inks. Thus, this label printer tends to be used more for industrial and chemical labels than for “prime” product labels.
• Matte label stock requirements – The Epson TM-C7500 is a matte label printer that accepts matte label media only. Its inks will not work with glossy media. (Epson makes a gloss version of this printer, the Epson TM-C7500G).
• Printer Cost – The Epson TM-C7500 costs more than Epson’s GP-831 GHS label printer. That said, the TM-C7500 is faster and has a higher resolution than the GP-831.
• Limited label width – The Epson TM-C7500 prints labels up to 4.25 inches wide, making it suitable for producing smaller labels and barcodes. If you need to print larger sizes for items like chemical drums, a larger format GHS label printer might be a better choice.
Epson TM-C7500 GHS Costs
The Epson TM-C7500 GHS label printer currently retails for $8499 USD and has lower ink and service costs than color laser and thermal inkjet printers.
Ongoing costs for the Epson TM-C7500 GHS label printer are replacement ink cartridges, blank media, and the maintenance box. This color label printer does not require replacement print heads as its print head is designed to last the entire lifecycle of the printer. This can save you thousands per year in service and maintenance costs.
How is the Epson TM-C7500 GHS Label Printer Different from the Other ColorWorks C7500 Label Printers from Epson?
Epson makes three versions of its ColorWorks C7500 color label printer:
• Epson TM-C7500 (Matte / GHS)
• Epson TM-C7500G (Gloss)
• Epson TM-C7500GE (Graphics Edition)
Each printer in the family shares the same chassis and general specifications.
The main difference between the matte and gloss models is the ink. The Epson TM-C7500 uses traditional pigment-based inks which are intended for printing on matte media while the Epson TM-C7500G uses pigment-based inks that have been formulated to use with gloss media.
The Epson TM-C7500GE is Epson’s “Graphics Edition” model of this label printer. It includes the Epson TM-C7500G plus several important add-ons: Wasatch SoftRIP software, six months of technical support from Wasatch, and one year of Epson’s on-site service.
