Afinia’s Extended Depot Warranties extend the factory return-to-depot warranty from standard one-year coverage to two or three full years of warranty coverage from purchase date. Afinia’s Standard and Extended Warranties cover parts and labor, but not shipping or consumables. An Extended Depot Warranty must be purchased at time of printer sale and cannot be purchased in combination with an On-Site Warranty.
The Afinia Hot Swap Replacement Warranty is an express replacement program available only under the first year of factory warranty. If printer issues cannot be resolved with Afinia’s Technical Support, a replacement printer is shipped on a pallet via express freight. The replacement printer may be new or used at Afinia’s discretion. The Replacement Hot Swap Warranty must be purchased at time of printer sale and can be purchased in combination with either an Extended Depot Warranty or On-Site Replacement.
Afinia’s On-Site Service Warranties provide third-party on-site repair and maintenance in both the United States and Canada. If printer issues cannot be resolved by Afinia Support, a technician will come on site. Service is initiated by Afinia Technical Support. On-Site Service Warranties after the first year also covers labor and parts that are out of warranty. Service is limited to certain zip codes. An On-Site Warranty must be purchased at time of printer sale and cannot be purchased in combination with an Extended Depot Warranty. Please contact us before purchasing to confirm that on-site service is available in your area and to determine which zone you are located in (Zone 1, Zone 2 or Zone 3).

The Afinia L801 Color Label Printer is an industrial web-fed inkjet solution featuring Memjet™ technology. This digital label printer is ideal for short-run and medium-run label print jobs used for anything from consumer product labeling to inventory applications. The Afinia L801 is easy to use (does not require a skilled operator), has an integrated internal unwinder, works well with industry-standard label design software, and is available with an optional rewinder. The L801 is compatible with a wide range of paper, polyester, polypropylene, and vinyl label stocks.

Receive a $500 discount when you purchase $500+ of blank labels with the purchase of an Afinia L801 Color Label Printer. This discount is automatically applied to your cart once these conditions are met.

If you or your business require labels that are UV-resistant or water-resistant, consider the Afinia L801 Plus which has the same print resolution as the Afinia L801 but it is instead designed to use Memjet™’s specially-formulated “Niagara” ink (also known as VersaPass N ink), which dramatically increases its resistance to water, moisture and ultra-violet light1.

Memjet™ Color Label Printer

The Afinia L801 Color Label Printer is a Memjet™-powered digital label printer allowing you to print high-quality, full-color prime labels at speeds of up to 60 feet per minute (18 meters per minute). Memjet™’s stationary “Waterfall” printhead technology allows paper to move quickly through the printer, while maintaining superb print resolution.

High Quality & Resolution

Using the Afinia L801 Color Label Printer, you can print at up to 1600 x 1600 dpi for vivid, eye-catching labels – perfect for capturing a customer’s attention on a store shelf and fine enough to print small fonts on the back of a nutrition label. By using CMYKK, the L801 Label Printer offers exceptional color and rich blacks, giving you the ability to print with better contrast.

Optional Rewinder

The Afinia L801 Optional Label Rewinder makes managing your labels easy, and allows you to conveniently rewind your labels right onto a 3-inch core. It is a great, recommended addition for companies that experience high usage, heavy duty jobs and/or require an applicator to apply labels to products.

The rewinder also gives you the ability to choose the direction of rotation – to situate labels to where they either face in or face out. Once rewinding is complete, simply remove the core holder and completed roll.

In some cases, users may require a larger roll of labels. While it is generally recommended to upgrade to either an Afinia L901 or Afinia L901 Plus Label Printer, users can optionally add the Afinia XL Unwinder* (*requires modification to the rear media cover) to the L801 Label Printer which allows users to print on label rolls with up to 10.0″ outside diameter. For reference, depending on the thickness of the label material, a roll with an outside diameter of 8.0 inches is equal to roughly 500 linear feet, whereas a roll with an outside diameter of 10.0 inches is equal to roughly 850 linear feet.

Low Cost of Ownership

Afinia’s digital label printers that feature Memjet™ Printing Technology (such as the Afinia L801) allow you to save on consumables. The total ink capacity that the Afinia L801 can hold is 1.25 liters of Memjet™ ink which supports large runs, and offers an industry-leading low ink cost. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about exactly how much your company will save per label by printing your labels in house with an Afinia L801 Label Printer.

4 reviews for Afinia L801 Color Label Printer

  1. Mike L

    Outstanding print quality, low ink cost and fast!

  2. Steven M

    The L801 is very fast and has excellent print quality capable of printing the fine print on the small labels that we put on our glass bottles. The labels that the L801 produces makes our products look very professional and it has more than paid for itself rather than having a company print labels for us

  3. Frank B

    Excellent Memjet label printer. We have had this printer for well over a year and we have also have a similar Memjet label printer by a different manufacturer, however Afinia is the best Memjet label printer manufacturer in my opinion due to their remote support and user-friendly instructions. We recently purchased an L801 Plus for our products that require water-resistance

  4. Adam L

    Texas Label Printers was kind enough to send us sample labels printed on the Afinia L801 before we purchased this printer, and I must say that the color quality and sharpness of these labels are very impressive. Fine print and even photos look amazing when printed with this printer. We have had the L801 for 5 months now without any issue and would highly recommend it (and the rewinder) to anyone who is considering it printing their own (rolls) of labels
