Epson is an industry leader when it comes to label printing. This is due largely to their technology and their reputation for excellence. The pigment-based ink cartridges are single color (C, M, Y, K), so you only need to replace the color that has run out, rather than replacing a cartridge which is mostly full.
The advantage of this is it cuts down on both cost as well as wasted ink.

The Epson GP-C831 printer is an industrial strength label printer. If you want a printer that can handle high volume printing reliably, with fast print speeds and high-capacity, affordable ink cartridges—this is the printer for you.
Built to last, the C831 is designed for commercial environments, and is water and dust resistant. It is able to withstand up to 44 pounds of pressure on its top and is more or less maintenance free. With a permanent print head, the reliability is improved. Additionally, this means there’s no need for replacing the print head as other printers from Epson’s competition do.
