TM-C3500 Barcode Printers
Marrying Epson’s Inkjet printing technology with their DURABrite® Ultra Pigment ink, the ColorWorks C3500 Color Inkjet Label Printer produces vibrant highly durable labels suitable for all major label applications. From shelf tags to product labels, the C3500 is ideal for high volume printing where quality and durability matter.
Building off of its predecessor the C3400, with the fast 4 inches per second print speed and compact design, Epson’s C3500 has added a level of quality with four colors in individual ink cartridges. Best for graphics, the C3500 does not have an ultra photo realistic print proficiency, and is great for cosmetics and jewelry where color and detail are crucial selling points. In addition, the C3500 easily adjusts to handle prints jobs from 1.2” to 4.4’ widths, rear feed capability for fanfold or large label rolls and is available with USB and Ethernet interfaces. The C3500 inkjet label printer will allow you to dramatically reduce label and ink costs, increase efficiency and print high quality labels in four colors on demand.
**For quality results, we highly recommend using only DURABrite® Ultra Pigment ink, and SecurColor labels. Using other accessories will greatly reduce the quality and durability of your label.**

Epson TM-C3500 Reviews
If you are looking for a fast, easy to use, color printer that doesn't bleed or smudge even as it comes out of the printer than the Epson TM-C3500 is for you. The price is much lower than its' leading competition and the durability testing POSGuys performed shows amazing resilience. In one of our tests we submerged the label for one year in water and there was no bleeding or smudging. Another improvement is the money you save on ink. Four cartridges instead of one combined cartridge allow you to replace colors as you need them.
We love the printer but there are some caveats to be aware of. You need to use approved label media. We've tested the print quality between the two and if you aren't using labels designed for the TM-C3500 then you are not going to get the best results. You may even get bad results as in the case of one of our customers who went with a generic label. The print quality on images and text is excellent and a big improvement over the C3400. That being said if you are looking for a ultra-high gloss photo-realistic images it may not be what you need. We wrote a blog showing large closeups of the print quality as well as the durability testing. Check it out and decide for yourself.
