Barcode printers are available for many uses. When choosing a printer some important features to consider are:
- Resolution – For thermal and thermal transfer, you can get 200, 300, and 600 dots per inch (DPI).
- Durability – Will you print 5 labels per day or 10,000 per day? It makes a difference.
- Label Size – Small printers can only print small labels, generally up to 4″ wide. Large printers tend to be more expensive and the print heads are too.
- Connection type to your system – COM or LPT
- Environmental Conditions – Metal or Plastic cases are available.
