Superior ink quality and durability

Since GHS label requirements like dye-based inks, Epson's world-renowned durable pigment-based inks firmly bind to media fibers, delivering outstanding stability and resistance to chemicals, water, fading and smudges. And the ColorWorks C831, with its durable inks, is certified to print on BS56091 approved labels, in addition to a wide variety of continuous paper and labels.

Exceptional reliability

Designed for commercial environments the ColorWorks C831 is built to last. It is dust and water resistant, can withstand weights up to 44 lbs on its top and is virtually maintenance free with a total print volume of up to 1.2 million labels. And the print head is designed to be permanent, improving reliability and avoiding the need for frequent head replacement as with some competitive printers.

Easy to use and maintain

The ColorWorks C831 features easy access to all functions including ink replacement, an intuitive control panel, auto paper loading and more. And with its automatic paper release, paper jams are handled in no time. All of these features add up to increased productivity and reduced downtime to keep your business running.

Backed by the leader

The ColorWorks C831 wide color label printer delivers the quality and reliability that Epson printers are known for and is backed by Epson's industry-leading service and support programs.
