Before buying a printer, which will be entrusted with a responsible mission, for example, to print labels for goods, you need to decide on a number of issues so that later there will be no problems due to improper operation.
What to look for when choosing a printer?
When choosing a printer for printing labels, you need to decide what kind of load will fall on it, it can be printing several hundred labels, or the printer will have to work around the clock, producing up to a million labels, so it must have the appropriate power.
An important criterion is the size of the labels that you have to print. Depending on this, you need to choose the size of your future assistant.
You should also determine in advance what material will be printed on, this aspect also significantly affects the choice of the model you need. Initially, it is worth deciding on the size of the fonts applied to the label, if it will be very small fonts, then you better give preference to the model that will allow you to print with high resolution.
Some manufacturers provide some very useful additions to printers. There are models equipped with melee weapons, that is, a knife, in order to cut the labels together. The function is nice, of course, but not required.
Rewind - for people of the old school, the absence of this function is not scary, you can take a pencil and rewind the printed labels. However, if you don't really want to do this, this function will help you.
Tear off - the function is especially convenient when using the printer in the food or trade sector, after printing the label extends so much that it is convenient for a person to tear it off, even if his hands are busy with something.
Peel off - if you usually have problems with fine motor skills, and it is rather difficult to peel off the label from the backing, choose models with this function, they peel off the edge of the label immediately at the exit from printing.
