Color Label Solutions sells printers and the related labels to meet the GHS Initiative. If you require durable, low cost ink, we recommend the Epson inkjet printers:
The GP-C831 for GHS Drum Label Solutions; the TM-C3500 for smaller package GHS solutions; and the TM-C7500 for high volume requirements. The printers produce BS5609 certified labels when used with the Kimdura poly media. These low cost printers are a great option for many GHS applications.
If you want lower cost label media options and/or PCL/PostScript drivers, Color Label Solutions offers a laser based solution; the Okidata C711. The Okidata C711 is a great option for companies wanting to print GHS labels from Unix systems or legacy applications.
If your prefer to continue to use thermal transfer printers, Color Label Solutions offers the CAB XC4/300, 4″ wide and the XC6/300, 6″ wide thermal transfer printers. Combined with ribbons from Color Label Solutions, these printers produce GHS labels that meet the BS5609 requirements.
