Ink Cost Calculator: Estimate how much your labels will cost on the L801 Color Label Printer
You should use this ink cost calculator. When you consider all of the factors that make up the ownership cost of a label printer, ink cost in an important component. Some business owners, who opt for an inexpensive label printer, find out that, in time, the high ink cost of the “budget” printer makes it more expensive to own.
We’ve found that, depending upon your monthly label print volume, a $2,000 printer, with a high ink cost, can become more expensive than a $9,000 printer in less than six months.
Our ink cost calculator is easy-to-use. Just enter the dimensions of your label and its percentage of ink coverage into the spaces below. If you don’t know the ink coverage of your label, use the coverage function in your Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW software. If that’s not available to you, check with your graphic designer.
*Based on 12 IPS (Inches-Per-Second) and a “typical” label. At higher resolution (6 IPS), costs are approximately 15% higher. All values given are estimates and may not reflect exact costs.
