5 reviews for Afinia L701 Color Label Printer

  1. Laura D

    Print quality (both color and the 1600dpi resolution) is outstanding and looks better than the labels we used to have printed for us. The ink cost is good, but in hindsight we should have probably bought the L801 or L901 to reduce ink costs because we print many more labels now than we used to…

  2. Kimberly H

    Amazing label printer! We purchased the L701 for our coffee business after doing a lot of research, testing samples, etc. While we don’t print enough labels to justify purchasing an L801 or L901 (which use the same print engine and are basically just faster and have lower ink cost), the L701 is the least expensive Memjet label printer that we could find that produces the highest quality/resolution available. FYI the labels we print now look better than the ones we were outsourcing before…

  3. Dave S

    We are blown away by the quality of this label printer. The images it prints are crystal clear and the fine print is sharper than any printer we’ve seen

  4. Betty A

    The printer has exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and ease of use. Afinia and Texas Label Printers has been very helpful with an issue we experienced from shipping damage. They ended up sending us a replacement printer on a pallet to ensure that it wasn’t damaged on the second shipment. I am giving 4 stars only because of the shipping issue that we experienced.

    • Michael

      Hi Betty – Thank you for the review. Afinia has now changed their shipping policy for the L701 to be shipped on a pallet via LTL Freight (instead of via FedEx Ground), so shipping damage will likely not be an issue anymore for these printers. Thank you again for choosing Texas Label Printers!

  5. Isabella R

    We originally were thinking about purchasing the L801 but it was outside of our budget. The Afinia L701 is perfect for us because it has the same print quality as the L801 but is more compact and a fraction of the cost
