Label printers come in a multitude of sizes and they are very diverse in terms of the label types they are suitable for as well. The diversity of the available machines makes the process of picking one very difficult, so here is some help regarding the features that you should look for when searching for the best printer:
- The size of the machine – the three major types of label printers are mobile machines that can be easily carried around, slightly larger desktop units and large, industrial printers;
- The size of the labels to be printed – most label printers can handle labels up to 10 cm wide, so if your labels are larger than that, you will need to look for a printer that is made to print that size or you will need to turn to a label printing company;
- Longevity – label printers are not cheap and their lifespan depends on many factors, such as the number of labels that you print per day and the environment in which the machine is used. A standard printer used in an office or in a laboratory for printing 50-100 labels will live much longer than one that is used in a dusty factory, so if you need your printer to work among special circumstances, look for a machine designed for such environments. Depending on the size of the project it is best to get the services of a professional printing company like Primeflex Labels Inc. to do the job.
