1. How do thermal label printers work?

2. Do you have a business and need a fast way to print receipts, product labels, bar codes, postage labels, name badges, shipping labels? Or do you want to organise things around the house or at school by putting descriptive tags on items and folder labels on your letters and documents? Do you work in a laboratory and need a fast and easy way of categorising and labelling specimens? The best way to do all of these is through a label printer.

3. A label printer is a type of computer printer that prints on self-adhesive paper or tape and also sometimes on card-stock tags. It has a different mechanism from the typical office or home printer as it needs to have special feed mechanisms that can process rolled stock or tear sheet (fanfold) stock. While it is also possible to use ink, most label printers use a thermal printing mechanism.

4. Thermal label printers apply heat to thermal-transfer material such as paper or tape, which is more economical and convenient because you do not need to buy expensive toner or ink and make cartridge replacements ever. This is also the technology used by common commercial receipt printers.

5. There are many options for label printers depending on the volume of label prints you want to produce and the size of the roll of stock you intend to print on, whether you are printing on the machine itself or using a computer to do so.

6. Label printers such as the Dymo LabelWriter 450 and the Dymo LabelWriter 450 Turbo connect to a computer via USB and use a specific operating system as well as dedicated software compatible with popular software programs to produce output. Dymo Labelwriter 450 USB

7. Meanwhile, label makers such as Dymo LabelManager 160 Desktop Label Maker, Dymo LabelManager Compact Label Maker and Dymo LabelManager 210D Desktop Label Maker are stand-alone machines, with their own built-in keyboards and display screens that allows users to instantly print labels without going through a computer.
