* DuraFast Label Company is now shipping the Afinia L701 color label printer to customers across the United States and Canada. According to Basat Khalifa, president of DuraFast Label Company, the Afinia L701 shares many of the same features and benefits as the Afinia L801 color label printer but at a lower price point.
"The L701 color label printer has a lower purchase price than the L801," Khalifa explains. "This makes it a great choice for small businesses with lower print volume requirements. The trade-offs are a slightly slower print speed and the per label ink costs aren't quite as low as the L801's. Though it's tempting to compare the two siblings because they are so similar, what our customers are finding most intriguing about the Afinia L701 color label printer is how it compares to other entry-level color label printers on the market. It blows them all away!
"When it comes to operating costs, the L701 offers fantastic ink costs. We've seen per label ink cost differences as high as 28 cents per label. Multiply that times 5,000 labels per month or so, which is appropriate label production volume for this entry level market, and you're looking at about $1400 more per month ($17,000 per year) in ink cost savings."
Khalifa also pointed out a few other differences, including:
"Print speed--the Afinia L701 color label printer uses a stationary 8.5"...
