These printers are available in 4-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch and 10-inch print widths and print resolutions of 203dpi, 300dpi and 600dpi. Some models allow for high speed printing of up to 14-inches per second allowing for many 1,000’s of labels to be printed per day, available in direct thermal or thermal transfer technology.
Desktop printers tend to be compact in size and are great for applications where less than 2,000 labels per day need to be printed, these printers are available using direct thermal or thermal transfer technology and vary greatly in the amount of performance and features that they offer. Desktop printers are used in a huge range of applications including retail, shipping, logistics, government, hospitals, labs, manufacturing and electronics.
