Zebra Desktop Label Printers

Zebra desktop thermal label printers take up very little desk space and are typically designed for printing 1,000 - 2,000 labels per day.

CDM Labels are able to supply thermal label printers to allow you to print and design your own barcodes, text and graphics on many different types of labels and label materials.  Most printers supplied come with basic label design software.

There are two types of printing methods for thermal label printers:

  • Direct Thermal - Uses heat sensitive label material to produce black text, barcodes & images. Direct thermal labels are for short term use, having limited resistance to marking, smudging, scratching and contact should be avoided with moisture, oil, fats and direct sunlight, the print usually last for 6 to 12 months dependent on application and exposure.
  • Thermal Transfer - Uses paper or synthetic labels with a thermal transfer ribbon to produce a permanent print (most thermal transfer printers also allow you to print direct thermal labels).  Ideal for use in environments where the print needs to be longer lasting and may be exposed to direct sunlight.
