Pigment-based prints are highly resistant to the challenges of moisture, abrasion, sun-fading, and extreme temperature. This makes the L501 perfect for packaging requiring GHS compliance, as well as those with high exposure to moisture, such as beverages and bath products.

The L501’s dye-based prints are high-impact, colourful, and vibrant, making them ideal for prime labeling applications, such as in retail environments.

Pigment and Dye-based Labels

Enjoy the durability of pigment and the vibrancy of dye inks in the same printer. The L501’s ink interchangeability offers a level of versatility never before experienced in the label printing world.

Versatility Meets Economy

Not only is the L501 one of the most versatile label printers on the market, it offers great value for small to mid-sized label applications. Separate CMYK ink cartridges contribute to a lower cost per label, since only colors that are empty need to be replaced.
