VP485 Colour DYE Ink Label Printer

VP485 Colour DYE Ink Label Printer

The new VP485e utilizes an advanced and proven inkjet technology from Hewlett Packard for fast, high quality colour roll fed label printing. In addition, with the ability to print full bleed-to-edge labels your business can produce professional grade labels.

This printer uses regular Dye inks, if you require a more durable label then please look at the VP495, which is the Pigment ink version of this printer.  

This printer requires an un-winder (shown but not included); An optional re-winder is also available.  For more information, sample labels and or a demonstration please click below.


Many companies have a rapidly growing need for short runs of colour labels. This is largely due to an explosion in increased product versions, SKU's, barcoding, localization, private branding, and targeted marketing promotions. Most external print houses charge excessive setup and plate fees greatly increasing the cost per label. This and minimum order quantities can greatly reduce your flexibility as well as tying up your cash and space in extra labels held on the shelf.

The VIPColour VP485 colour label printer provides you with the versatility to address this challenge by printing your own labels in house, on demand. Short run custom labels can be printed professionally and just in time. No set up fees, no minimum order quantities, no lead times, just great labels!
