What is the best printer for Shipping labels?

1st Dec 2020, Barcodes.com.au


 Post pandemic. We call it the ‘New normal’, meaning a new way of living after some dramatic change has transpired. The new normal encourages us to deal with current situations rather than lamenting what could have been.

 Thankfully, Australia is doing well with Covid19 now, or at least we are in a bit better situation than other countries. Though until the vaccine roll out- even if it rolls out, our day-to-day doesn’t seem to be the same as how it was before Covid 19, for a long time.

 Like it or not, we had to and still have to get used to this ‘contactless’ life, which has brought the extensive increase of Online-shopping & shipping.

 Ironically, this could mean the chance of expending a range of customers is now higher. Because if the delivery takes an extra 1-2 days more than if they were to shop in store, customers would not mind where you are.

 This is why the demand of shipping labels & label printers are increasing.

<Examples of shipping labels>


 The industry standard size for a shipping label is 4x6 inches(102x150mm). For smaller packages, it might be possible to use a 6x3(152mmx76mm)or 4x4(102x102mm) inch label.

 About Label printers, people often refer to them as ‘Shipping label printers’ even though they can do a lot more than just print shipping labels.

 The barcode label printers used to print shipping labels can be either portable, desktop or industrial printers depending on the application and print volume and they normally use direct thermal method.

 So, for a better understanding, here is the explanation.


 [ Label printers can be categorised by the types Mobile, Desktop, Industrial ]

  •  Mobile Barcode Label Printers are the perfect solution for printing on the go – labels, receipts, infringements and more. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Network and USB.
  •  Desktop Barcode Label Printers are small, convenient and are ideal for environments such as retail, office or small-scale operations that have limited space, but require high quality, fast and reliable label printing. They are a perfect fit for printing shipping labels, labels for retail applications, asset tracking or small-scale labelling operations that require lower print volumes.
  •  Industrial Barcode Label Printers are rugged, reliable and are designed for high volume printing needs. They are ideal for warehouse, manufacturing, logistics environments. If your business is printing more than 1000 labels per day, then industrial printers would be ideal for you.


[ You also need to know methods of printing labelsDirect thermal and Thermal transfer ]

 The biggest differences are: Direct thermal does not use a ribbon, and are ideal for short term label requirements such as shipping labels, whereas thermal transfer requires a ribbon, and are ideal for long term label requirements.
