As of August 1st 2017, Epson will no longer sell the C7500G printer. They announced end-of-life for this part number earlier this July.
I first wrote about the C7500G in July of 2015:
And wrote about one of our first customers, NIC Industries, using the C7500G:
Instead of the C7500G, Epson will sell the C7500GE. The “GE” is a printer bundle: including the C7500G printer, a single user license of Wasatch SoftRIP, one year of on-site service for the printer, and 6 months of free support for Wasatch SoftRIP. Learn more about the GE printer bundle, including the Wasatch RIP here:
With the SoftRIP, you get better color control; especially important when trying to color match. For example, you may use it to match specified Pantone numbers, to match more closely the color printed on a label to the original artwork. However, you don’t have to use the SoftRIP to print to the C7500G. You can print to the C7500G from most if not all Windows based applications.
|Wasatch SoftRip Label Edition|
Here is information from Wasatch on their Label Edition:
For an incremental $955 for the C7500GE versus the C7500G, you get 1 year of on-site service valued at $1,029 and the Wasatch SoftRIP valued at $1,200. Even with just the on-site service, the GE bundle is a great deal.
Personally, I believe the SoftRIP is best suited for professional printers; those individuals experience with using other RASTER IMAGE PROCESSORS (RIP) from other printing applications. Although not difficult, using the RIP is different than printing directly from a PDF and other Window-based software programs.
So beginning August 1st, you’ll be able to purchase only the “GE” version. But some of you may not want or need the on-site service or the RIP software. If so, please contact us know to order your C7500G before the price goes up. Or purchase from our store here:
Don’t forget to add 2 years of Extended Warranty with the “G”:
And a spare set of ink:
And a spare maintenance kit:
If you prefer to get the C7500GE with the one year on-site service and Wasatch SoftRip, purchase in our store here:
