Afinia L501 Color Label Printer - Dye Inkjet
Afinia L501 Dye - Vibrant Color Label Printer with Duo Ink Technology
The Afinia L501 is a new color label printer from Afinia Label that is capable of printing vibrant “prime” labels using dye-based inks. Not only is the L501 Dye an exceptional and capable prime label printer, if your needs change, you can buy and interchange the ink type going from dye inks to pigment inks without having to buy a standalone pigment ink printer.
What are the Benefits of the Afinia L501 Dye Inkjet Label Printer?
Because the L501 comes in both a dye and a pigment ink model, you’ll initially need to choose between one or the other. As your needs change, or if you want to take advantage of its Duo Ink capabilities right away, you can order a second printhead and set of inks so that you have both pigment and dye ink capabilities.
Start with the Afinia L501 Dye color label printer if you want to start printing:
- Vibrant product labels as used in wine labels, coffee and tea, and specialty food labels
- Customer facing labels that need to look their best
- Labels for marketing purposes and photographic quality
The dye inks in the Afinia L501 Dye color label printer are best for producing vibrant, full color labels.
Since you can swap out the dye printhead and inks and use the L501 printer with a pigment printhead and inks (sold separately), you can also use this color label printer to print durable industrial and GHS BS5609 labels. Pigment inks offer much better water, UV, and abrasion resistance and don’t fade, smudge or smear but their colors are less vibrant than dye inks. With the L501, you can use one printer to handle both types of color label production runs.
