Color label printers are available in different categories based on the type of ink they use. The two most common types of ink used in color label printers are dye-based ink and pigment-based ink.
Dye-based ink color label printers are ideal for businesses that require bright and vibrant colors. They are often less expensive than pigment-based ink printers and offer a wider color gamut. Dye-based inks are more suitable for short-term label use as they tend to fade or degrade faster than pigment-based inks. Dye-based ink color label printers are suitable for businesses that require high-quality labels for marketing or promotional purposes.
Pigment-based ink color label printers are designed for businesses that require long-lasting and durable labels. Pigment-based ink is more resistant to water, sunlight, and heat than dye-based ink. They are ideal for businesses that require labels for long-term use or outdoor applications. While pigment-based ink color label printers offer a more limited color gamut compared to dye-based ink printers, the colors are more stable and do not fade or degrade over time.
