Which label printer do you choose?
There are many variants of label printers on the market. There is a large number of options, ranging from relatively inexpensive, compact desktop printers to highly durable industrial printers. Therefore, we strive to make things as simple as possible for you.
Due to the fact that industrial printers are designed to last for a significant amount of time, you may be working with a model that has been transferred to a different manufacturer. Zebra has consistently held the position of being the largest manufacturer of label printers. Coming in second is Honeywell, as a result of the company’s acquisitions of Intermec and Datamax. Argox is now a member of the SATO family after the company merged with TSC and Printronix several years ago.
When selecting a label printer and model, it is important to consider the required quality of the prints, the number of prints that will be produced per day, and the location where the printer will be placed.Request a quote Contact us
The most durable label printers for intensive use in all environments
High-end industrial printers are constructed with the most robust components and they have virtually indestructible casing. These label printers have a daily print capacity of between 5.000 and 10.000 prints per day. Even if you do not print very often, but the printer is frequently exposed to dust, sand, or dirt, this segment is the best option for you. The cost of these label printers ranges between 1.000 and 5.000 euros.
Examples of printers in this market segment include the Zebra ZT600 and ZT610, Honeywell PX4ie (4-inch labels), and PX6ie (6-inch labels). SATO, Printronix, and Toshiba are three additional major, high-quality brands in this category.
Mid-range label printers for 3.000 to 5.000 prints per day
Mid-range label printers are ideal for daily print volumes between 3.000 and 5.000. They typically provide all of the features that you require, including WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, simple operation through the use of a touchscreen interface, and a large capacity for both label rolls and ink ribbons. This reduces the frequency with which you need to replace them. Prices vary from 450 to 2.000 euros. A mid-range printer including its optional extra features can be more expensive than an entry-level model in the industrial category.
In this segment, notable examples include the SATO CL4NX Plus, the Zebra ZT111, and the new Honeywell PM45 and PD45.
Desktop label printers for less intensive applications
Desktop label printers are the most compact printers for less intensive tasks. There are still substantial price and model distinctions; the high-end desktop printers are notably of higher quality than their entry-level counterparts. They also offer additional functionalities.
The price range for this category is between 150 and 800 euros. There are far too many options in this category to list. Let us know what is most important to you in a label printer and the price range you are looking for. We are pleased to assist you with sincere and impartial advice.
Zebra, Honeywell, TSC, Argox, and Bixolon are examples of well-known desktop label printer manufacturers. The Zebra ZD220 and the Honeywell PC42 are popular models.
