Labeling printers are not created equal, and you need to consider all of the facts to make the right choice. There are many industrial labeling systems printers for commercial uses. They come with various features and capabilities, but it all boils down to how you want to use the printer.
Select a labeling printer
Monochrome or Color
There are monochrome and color printers available. A lot of businesses use monochrome printers because they only use them for business documents, but many users at home will get color labeling printers to print color documents.
The thing to remember is that they can print in color, but the images will not be of the highest quality. Monochrome printers are cheaper, and the ink is less expensive while the color printers tend to be more expensive as well as the ink.
Resolution and Quality
Labeling printers have different resolutions and levels of quality. As a general rule, the higher the resolution, the higher the quality of the document. Most of the monochrome printers will have a resolution of 1200 x 1200 and the color printers have a resolution of 2400 x 1200.
Printers are offered at varying prices from as little as $100 to over $1000 depending on the features. Most homes and small businesses will be able to use a printer in the $100-$200 range, but large organizations may need to purchase a higher end model because it will be used for industrial purposes.
Print memory is what the printer uses to save the document and print it to paper. This is important because the print memory determines how fast the printer will be able to print documents. Most of the printers can have their memory upgraded, but they will usually come with anywhere from 64MB-128MB.
There are usually reviews of most of the printers on the market. You can look online and find reviews or ask around if you know anyone that owns the type of printer you want to buy. If you notice some patterns in the reviews about some negative issues, then you should probably take note.
Warranty and Customer Service
Given that the printers are manufactured by some different companies, they will come with different warranties and customer service policies. It is best to purchase a printer that comes with at least a one-year warranty that includes customer service and technical support via phone.
Choosing the right labeling printer depends on how you plan on using it. Most small businesses and homes can use a moderately priced printer with an average resolution and memory. Investigate the product thoroughly before you make your final decision.
