Barcode / label printers - Tag printers - Ticket printers - The right tool for the job. A complete labelling system

Compatible with all Windows software; Microsoft Office, Access, Excel, Word, Visual Basic, Oracle, Paradox, PowerBuilder, SAP, 4D (4th Dimension), Lotus Notes, Approach, Delphi, Visual C/C++, C++ Builder, Sun Java, etc. Mobile printers can be driven from Windows CE and Palm operating systems. Ask about IBM AS/400 RPG, Unix and Linux drivers / integration.

TIP: Avoid a mistake - don't buy a small, limited use, thermal only printer (e.g. Dymo, Seikosha, Seiko, Costar, Brother, Kroy) from office stationers or computer shop - you will end up paying more than the cost of the printer in label costs for the expensive labels they use; which come in a poor range of sizes (no colours either) and because they are direct thermal will fade and discolour yellow after time.

The thermal printers we recommend, have a wide variety of uses, as well as printing paper labels and can print scratch resistant resin ink on a wide variety of materials; perforated tickets, continuous paper receipts, vinyl signs, plastic tags, shrink wrap cable markers, despatch documents, forms, etc. All up to 4" wide and almost as long as you like. The lowest cost labels are readily available in a huge range of sizes in blank white or blank coloured.

* Printing using a ribbon is cheaper because the cost of labels + ribbons is typically cheaper than labels that are printable without a ribbon. Ribbons produce better readable barcodes which are more durable (ribbons also prolong your printers life and did I mention they are cheaper).

Your laser printer cannot print one label at a time - label printers can print just one label - or  1,000's of labels, cheaply and efficiently. They can even present each label already peeled - ready for you to; pick and stick, pick and stick (as fast as you like).

Your inkjet printer just might be able to print one label at a time, but; not cheaply, not easily, not quickly, not with reliable barcodes and not moisture proof.

All label printers use rolls of pre-cut labels on continuous backing paper (see picture below, in labels section). The gaps between each label allows the printer to sense exactly where each new label starts. 

Some complex label sets (and tickets or tags) have a black  marks to tell the printer where to start.

Most thermal label printers allow you to use either rolls of (a) special paper labels that go black with heat, or (b) ordinary plain paper labels that the printer melts black wax ink on to (or black resin ink, or a wax / resin mix).

Ink is on 100-300m long ribbons (like the ribbons in many plain paper fax machines). Every 1cm of label that feeds out of the printer, uses 1cm of ribbon.

DT means Direct Thermal - the labels that go black with heat.

TT means Thermal Transfer - the plain paper labels that need wax or resin melted on to them to form the image. Surprisingly, it is cheaper to use plain paper labels and a ribbon, than special DT labels. Using a ribbon also gives more durable and clearer images.

Linerless labels are available that reduce waste and allow more labels per roll - your printer must be setup to handle linerless.
