Epson’s Spare-In-The-Air printer exchange program is an extremely affordable service solution for companies that cannot afford to have their systems out of service for longer than 24 hours. This quick, overnight replacement warranty program bridges the gap between the turn-around time of depot repair and the higher cost of on-site service. Make one phone call to Epson and a replacement unit is express-shipped overnight to arrive the next day. Then just return the damaged unit to Epson. It’s that easy. And shipping both ways is paid for by Epson.

Color Labels are the New Standard

Today there is a growing demand for the use of color labels that feature color codes, photos and pictograms to highlight relevant information. This trend sharply drives up the number of label variations and increases label production complexity. Epson’s ColorWorks C3500’s ability to produce full color labels on demand makes it the ideal solution.

Superior Print & Ink Quality

Epson’s patented MicroPiezo® inkjet technology together with their DURABrite® Ultra Pigment ink ensures labels with crisp, clear, easy-to-read text, barcodes, and vibrant graphics that resist smudges and water even on plain paper.

5 reviews for Epson ColorWorks C3500 Label Printer

  1. Greg M

    We use this printer to print about 20 to 100 color labels including barcodes every day. It is a good compact label printer if you require durable color labels that are less than 4 inches in width. Ground shipping was quick – our printer arrived 3 days after we ordered it.

  2. Paula E

    Our printer was shipped out the same day I ordered it on Monday and arrived earlier than I expected on Wednesday (with the free ground shipping) – thank you!!

  3. Ryan S

    Great little label printer for the money. The quality was better than expected and was easy to setup

  4. Jose M

    Printer arrived the next day w/ free shipping !

  5. Laurey M

    I highly recommend buying the spare-in-the-air replacement warranty with this printer if your business can’t afford to be without a label printer for a 2-3 weeks! Texas Label Printers encouraged us to buy the warranty with our printer and it has definitely paid off! We ran into a service issue only once since we purchased this printer and Epson overnighted us a new replacement printer because we have the replacement warranty. Epson said that if we didn’t have this warranty that we would have had to pay to ship our printer to them for repair which would have left us without a label printer for 2-3 weeks. For only $62 a year this was definitely worth it.
