Barcode Printers

When shopping for a barcode label printer keep in mind two factors.

1. How much are you going to print?

If you're going to print continuously and need labels as fast as possible (production, warehousing, manufacturing) then look at the industrial label printers. They accept the more cost effective industrial rolls and print at higher dpi and higher print speeds. If you're printing individual labels that are used for an indefinite time period (retail, shipping, logistics) then a more economical desktop barcode printer may suit your needs.

2. How durable do the labels need to be?

A bar code printer that only prints direct thermal labels will produce a temporary label that can fade or be blacked out by being exposed to excessive friction, heat, or light. A thermal transfer printer will produce a more durable label but requires the use of a ribbon.

If you have any questions regarding which label printer fits your needs the best, please call us at 1-855-POS-GUYS and we will be happy to discuss your printing options.

Additional Barcode Printers Information

Also known as label printers, barcode printers are a vital tool for POS, logistics, and asset tracking applications. Designed to print text, graphics, and barcodes onto labels, tags, and more, a good barcode printer will make it easy for employees to know, at a glance, what an item is or where it should go. POSGuys carries a large selection of barcode printers, from great manufacturers including Zebra, Datamax-O'Neil, TSC, and more. We have separated our barcode printers into different categories; desktop printers are sorted by manufacturer, while heavy industrial printers are within their own category.

Desktop Barcode Printers

These space-saving printers are a great and affordable way to add low to medium volume label printing at your business. They are often used by retailers to re-label products or shelves, or in smaller shipping applications. Available as direct thermal or thermal transfer, you get your choice of affordability or durability in your print media. While not as fast as their industrial counterparts, a desktop barcode printer is great for printing up to 500 labels a day.

Wristband Printers

Ideal for hospital admitting as well as venue access, wristband printers have become a great way to keep track of people and manage services for them. Healthcare-specific models are even built using more durable components, such as plastics that hold up to cleaning agents. Wristband printers have seen an increase in use at music venues or festivals, as they make it easy to quickly identify who has access to various events & services.

    Suggested Wristband Printers:
  • Zebra HC100 - Healthcare-specific design
  • TSC TDP-225W - Supports larger capacity rolls

Industrial Barcode Printers

For larger printing operations, such as manufacturing, large scale shipping, or logistics, an industrial barcode printer is your best bet. Built with metal frames and heavy duty components, these printers are designed to run 24 hours a day, error free. To further maximize uptime, industrial printers support larger label and ribbon rolls, cutting down the number of times media needs to be replaced.

Additional models are available, including inkjet label printers and printers that support RFID. If you have specific questions about a model or are unsure which printer is right for you, please give us a call at 1-800-903-6571.
