It’s important you buy the right kind of printer, otherwise, you may end up with an obsolete printer or a printer that may end up costing you more in the long run. Here are some tips to consider before purchasing a label printer.

Figure out how much you will be printing

There are many different types of printers available on the market. Color Label printers have different specifications and features at different price points. It’s important to factor when to upgrade your next color label printer. You wouldn’t buy an entry-level printer if you are printing 100,000 labels a month, and conversely, you wouldn’t get a high volume label printer if you are only using a couple hundred.

Determine the quality of the printing you need

If you’re going to be printing large volumes of product labels, you may want to invest in a high-end printer with higher print resolutions. For smaller printing projects, an entry-level label printer would be better suited for your needs. Depending on the size of your project, the majority of your costs will be ink cartridges and label rolls.

Select the right printer specifications for your labels

Certain label printers have a maximum print width, so larger labels will required labels with wider compatibility. Printers with specific print technology work best with specific material type. Pigment ink-based printers work best with matte labels, while dye-based ink works best with high gloss labels.
