Printing & Labelling, Thermal Printing, Barcode Printing
A label printer is a device that is able to print on self-adhesive label material and/or card-stock. Label printers can have many applications; such as packaging labels, supply chain management, retail price marking and fixed assets management. A label marker is a term commonly used to describe a printer with built-in keyboard and display for standalone usage. As well as a variety of types of paper, label printers can also use a number of different print mechanisms; such as Thermal, Laser and Impact. The most common of these are Thermal; a type of printer that comprises two main types: Direct Thermal uses heat-sensitive paper, while Thermal Transfer uses heat to transfer ink from ribbon onto labels.
