Hi, I need to get a thermal label printer for printing barcode/price
labels. Currently I am using a laser printer with a sheet of 30 labels
which is great... except when I need to print a small quantity then I
begin to feel wasteful because I won't run a half used page of labels
back through the nice laser printer.
My needs are...
I want to buy a machine with excellent compatibility to MS RMS 1.3 that
will output 1x2 or 1x3 labels as few as one at a time. Hopefully
without any waste (some I've seen waste a blank one after each printing
Secondly I want to buy a machine that the cost of supplies is low on.
I am annoyed by the price of thermal labels and up until my current
need for barcodes have been using a dot matrix label printer that feeds
15/16x3.5" labels that cost about $10/box of 5000. I realize I can't
even touch that price with thermal labels but I want to be sure to make
a wise purchase.
Lastly, the desired interface would be USB. Parallel or serial would
work too but USB would be most desireable for my current equipment.
I would appreciate your advice. Exact model numbers would be even
Thanks alot everyone!
