These printers are ideal for cosmetic labels and essential oils that need to be printed on glossy polypropylene labels.

What Do Customers Love about Primera Label Printers?
Customers love the print quality of their Primera label printers since they print at 4800 dpi and the low cost (generally between $1300 and $3500 depending on model). These are the main reasons people buy the Primera label printers as they are very affordable. This is usually the first color label printer the business is purchasing.
What Do Customers Hate about Primera Label Printers?
When many small business start searching for color label printers, they love the print quality of the Primera LX500, LX900, LX2000 and CX1200 label printers. However, most of these customers end up purchasing the LX500, LX900 or LX2000 simply because they are very affordable. Then, as their businesses grow and they need to print more and more labels, they realize their printers have a high ink cost and ink cost per label.
If you are going to be producing small quantities of labels per month, then the Primera printers are a great buy. However, if your business is going to grow and you will be printing more than 3,000 labels per month, then you really need to understand the ink cost. For example, a 4 x 6 label printed on the LX900 with full ink saturation may cost more than ten cents in ink while the same label printed with the Afinia L801 or Epson TM-C7500G will cost less than 2 cents. The ink costs can add up to thousands of dollars per year, so you may want to consider a higher capacity printer as a better long-term investment. The ink cost savings each month could help pay your monthly payment – or offset it completely.
