Which printer is right for me?

Desktop Printers 

If you have low volume printing requirements and typically will print less than 500 labels a day and don't want to spend a lot of money, then one of these label printers is for you. The direct thermal (no ribbon required) models are cheaper than the thermal transfer versions.  

They will all print you a label, so what is the difference between them?

LP and TLP 2844 models are EPL (Eltron Programming Language) versions.

LP and TLP 2844-Z models are ZPL (Zebra Programming Language) versions.

The G Series are replacing the LP/TLP Series over the next year.

All barcode printers are 203 dpi except the TLP-3844Z and the GX430t which offer 300 dpi printing (ideal for finer text or to print a 100% EAN-13 barcode).


Mid Range Printers 

When your labelling requirements are constantly growing and you can afford to spend a little more then these mid range label printers offer a lot of features at a competitive price.

The entry level is the S4M barcode printer that comes in two models - with or without the ribbon mechanism. Without the ribbon mechanism it is only a direct thermal label printer and cannot be upgraded in the future.

The ZM400 is by far the most popular thermal transfer barcode printer since it is easy to use, load and maintain. It now has a large easy to read display on the front and plenty of memory to handle all sorts of label designs with logos and images. The ZM600 label printer is identical but offers a wider print width of 168mm (6.6").

The Zebra 105SL is a true work horse in a tough steel casing and is ideal if you have a harsh or demanding environment and have to print a lot of labels each day.


High Performance Printers 

When you have serious label printing requirements and need a barcode printer that can churn out labels 24/7 then you have to consider an Xi Series printer. They are built and manufactured from superior materials and parts designed to provide many years of reliable service.


Mobile Printers 

Zebra have a wide range of mobile printers to suit your 'on the go' label and receipt printing needs. We have considerable experience in making these receipt printers work with mobile applications or assisting in integration of ZPL or CPCL programming as well as Bluetooth or RF (wireless) networking. We don't sell you a printer...we provide a mobile label printing solution!


Card Printers 

If you are looking to print ID cards for your school, gym, building site or workplace we have a Zebra card printer that will suit your needs. Single sided, double sided, with mag stripe, monochrome or full colour, with barcode, with RFID, we can help you.
