If you are looking for a fast 8-inch color label printer for a production line in Canada, you may be wondering which one to choose: the Afinia L701 or the Epson CW-C6500? We put the two printers to the test, and the results may surprise you.

When you are printing labels for products in a production line, print speed is important for two main reasons:
Which Printer is Faster?
In our tests, we found that the Afinia L701 was multiple times faster than the Epson CW-C6500.
Here are the results of our tests using identical 8-inch-wide labels at the highest print settings for each machine:
In fact, we would like to show you the speed difference in a side-by-side video. Watch the video below to see how many more labels the Afinia L701 prints in 60 seconds compared to the Epson CW-C6500.
As you can see from the video, if you are printing labels in Canada, the Afinia L701 is the clear choice for a fast color label printer. It is multiple times faster than the Epson CW-C6500, and it will not slow down your production. Equally important, the L701 prints at a high quality 1600 dpi resolution, while the Epson CW-C6500 prints at a lower 1200 dpi resolution. The colors of the L701 are also more vibrant and true-to-life because it uses dye-based inks instead of the pigment inks used in the CW-C6500.
