End-of-Life (EOL) Notice
Epson announced the End-of-Life (EOL) for the Epson ColorWorks C831 Label Printer effective June 15th, 2020. The Epson ColorWorks C6500A is the recommended replacement for the Epson ColorWorks C831. The Epson ColorWorks C6500A prints up to 8.34″ wide, has faster speeds, has higher print quality and is made to handle more total labels than the earlier C831, without the need for pin-fed media. Compatible with ZPL II, SAP®, major middleware drivers and more, and built to accommodate remote printer management. Please note that the Epson C6500A is not pin-fed and so existing C831 media is not compatible.

Another Technology “First” from Epson
Epson’s ColorWorks C831 Inkjet Label Printer is ideal for industrial applications such as large format drum and chemical GHS labels. The Epson C831 is the first inkjet solution to be BS5609 certified1 and combines all the benefits of a rugged color inkjet printer with the accuracy of an 8-pin tractor feeder. It features print speeds up 16.5 pages per minute2, printable areas up to 8″ x 22″, precise label feeding to reduce jamming and high-density barcode printing, all at a lower cost of ownership (TCO) than color thermal transfer or color laser printers.
Superior Ink Quality & Durability
Unlike dye-based inks, Epson’s world-renowned durable pigment-based inks firmly bind to media fibers, delivering outstanding stability and resistance to chemicals, water, fading and smudges. The Epson ColorWorks C831 is certified to print on BS56091 approved labels in addition to a wide variety of continuous paper and labels.
Designed for commercial and industrial environments, the Epson ColorWorks C831 is built to last. It is dust- and water-resistant, can withstand weights up to 44 pounds on its top and is virtually maintenance free. The print head is designed to be permanent, improving reliability and avoiding the need for frequent head replacement.
Easy to Use & Maintain
The Epson ColorWorks C831 features easy access to all functions including ink replacement, auto paper loading, an intuitive control panel and more. With its automatic paper release, paper jams are handled quickly. All of these features add up to increased productivity and reduced downtime to keep your business running smoothly.
Backed by Epson
