Portable Printers

Mobile printers use the same thermal technology, but (as you might have guessed) are small enough to carry around and will print without cables.

Desktop Printers

These printers, as the name suggests, are smaller in size. Designed to work in smaller spaces and print fewer labels than their bigger cousins.

Industrial Printers

Industrial printers are larger and more durable than desktop models, built to print more labels each day and work with less attention.

Special Printers

Specialist Printers are designed to print tickets and
wristbands making them very easy to use.

Printers Add-Ons and accessories

Most printers don’t need any accessories or options, but many of these optional extras will save you time (and therefore money) and make printing labels a joy.

Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer

Thermal printers use heat to produce very high quality barcodes and other text on labels, tags, tickets, wristbands or receipt paper. Compared to laser and inkjet printing technologies, thermal – printers:
  • Need less maintenance
  • have lower cost labels, tickets and ink
  • can print single labels or receipts (not whole A4 sheets) and print faster (up to 450mm per second)
  • Near instant printing
  • while not suffering bleed as you find with some inkjet printers or fade with some lasers
