There's a myriad of labelling machines on the market these days, but for general use as well as specialist models Brother and Dymo are the most popular manufacturers. Both offer a complete range from occasional labellers right up to PC based systems and heavy-duty contractor-specific models, such as for electricians, gardeners, plumbers etc.
Mainly portable and desktop models, they range from very basic occasional use models up to PC connectable models allowing importing of symbols, logos and graphics. Multi-user 'Network' variants are available in this category.
Industrial labellers are more durable label machines suitable for small business applications to large corporate offices and retail. Industrial label machines are ideal for storage, warehousing, manufacturing, telecommunications and engineering to chemical and even nuclear environments and beyond.
There are lots of different models available offering many features such as pre-programmed industry terms and symbols, RFI (Radio Frequency Identification) printers with built-in reader and writer, barcode labelling etc.
Label Printers are categorised under Labelling but should not be confused with labellers that print a tape style label. They are best described as mini-printers that print onto traditional address or shipping labels, as well as creating inventory labels, barcode printing, name badges, banners and signage. The technology is direct thermal print so there are no toner, ink or ribbon costs. Labels can be die-cut printed individually or run as continuous labels. PC connection allows graphics and clipart images to be used, and printing from an address book saves time typing addresses for each occasion.
Label printers have only been available in recent years but are proving to be an essential in today's office.
There is heat, water, chemical and mould resistant tapes available in a variety of sizes.
