1 Epson's ColorWorks C831 inkjet printer with Epson's DURABrite® pigment inks used in combination with Neenah Poly media has been BS5609 certified.

Specifications Notes:
1 Print speed is based on printing the suite of ISO/IEC 24734 text and graphic images on 8.5" x 11" size pages. Speed of up to 16.5 pages per minute is based on draft mode. Actual print times will vary based on systemconfiguration, software, and page complexity.
2 Smallest individual label is 0.5" (12.7mm). Shortest distance between perforations is 4.0" (102mm). The last 5.5" (140mm) of media at end of a stack or roll is a non-printable area. Total form length from one Top-Of-Form to next T.O.F. must be aligned to an exact 1/8th or 1/100th of an inch.
3 Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields will be lower with higher-density images, hot or dusty conditions, less frequent printing, or printing predominantly with one color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and avariable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the "replace cartridge" signal.
