Your own Barcode Label Printing Solution

Depending on the number of labels you need to print and how often, as well as expected potential growth, will dictate which on demand label printing solution you should invest in now.

Low volume inexpensive starter print solution

If you only intend to print small runs of labels now and then, the Zebra LP2844-Z or TLP2844-Z printers will do the job. Please note that if you wish to print a 100% EAN-13 barcode you will need to buy a 300 dpi printer, such as the TLP3844-Z.

You can print labels up to 102mm wide (4") and doesn't take up much desk space. If you intend to print only a few label formats you can use BarTender Basic Edition which does not allow access to a file or database. Note that large print runs will have to be wound by hand.

If you have a huge product list, then BarTender Professional is highly recommended.

Depending on the printer you select and which version of BarTender you go for these solutions cost somewhere between $1000.00 and $2000.00 (ex gst).
