What is it?

Desktop (medium duty) thermal label printers

Desktop (medium duty) thermal label printers

These printers can easily last 10 years (i.e. we have customers that have used them for over a decade). This type of printer does not clog, like inkjet printers, or run out of ink or toner unexpectedly.

Their small size is often an important factor for some people with limited office / lab / workroom space. Many of these small machines can even print 10,000 labels in a full working day (i.e. they will never slow you down) in fact we often explain that they can all print labels faster than 5 or 10 people could possibly stick the labels on things.

Some thermal printers require no ink and rely on the label going black when the printer uses heat (this is known as direct thermal). Other models heat transfer (melt) black ribbon on to labels to cause printing of text and barcodes; thses models are know as thermal transfer and can also print special labels that need no ink (i.e. you have more flexibility). Thermal transfer also allows printing on to plastic labels.

All thermal printers print just as wide as printers costing £1,000+ and offer exactly the same print quality. The only difference and the reason they are low-cost is that there are limited expansion options (i.e. accessories like internal rewind units).

One of the fantastic plus points of low-cost printers, is the fact you can afford to buy two (to gain greater flexibility that even one expensive printer). For example, if you have one large printer and it needs repair you will envy someone who bought two smaller printers which are more likely be available when needed.

Also, two printers are ideal for printing two different sizes of label. No printer on the market is designed for changing the type of labels every five minutes, so people tend to buy a printer for each type of label (although most people tend to use just one size).

If you are going to critically rely on these printers, or any printer, you must think about what will happen on the day it stops working; even larger expensive printers can fail. Having two printers can save you a huge amount on extended maintenance contracts.

Repairs can take 3 days to a couple of weeks or more. Obviously, in an emergency you could buy a replacement; but that is not very good planning and you have still lost up to a whole day of production (for many people this is not an issue, but if it is a potential issue for you then consider two smaller printers).

TIP: Plan ahead - buy two printers and you will enjoy complete peace of mind (plus the ability to either print 2 different sizes of labels, or the same size twice as fast, or in different work areas).
