Printers have invariably made life much easier for many people. Earlier days had seen
printers being huge and cumbersome and only affordable by the bets of the best. Now-a-days with the innovations in technology
and modern advancements, printers have become much smaller and can be used by almost everyone.
There are different types of printers available in the market these days. Some of them are Laser Printers, Inkjet Printers,
and Label Printer etc. Label Printers are special types of printers that can be used to print labels and thus have a special
mechanism which can handle tear sheets or a rolled stock. Label printers are different from conventional printers because
they have the ability to print on card stock, materials which are self-adhesive and also sticky papers. Label printers are
very popular with retailers, shopkeepers and publishing companies.
Printing labels with the normal printers and on the normal GSM papers can prove to be a back breaking task. However, these
jobs can now be done easily with the help of label printers. Since everything has turned digital, it is important that the
label printers come with the provision to be connected with PCs. Most of them have a USB port and can be easily coordinated
with a PC or a laptop. This makes the process of editing very simple and easy.
The printers are broadly available in two categories: Namely Desktop Printers and Portable Printers. They even have keyboards
to enter and edit the data and also LCDs to view the data. This is especially in case of printers that cannot be connected to
a desktop or a laptop. They also come with the required software which can be used for organizing, storage and editing of the
data. Most of the label printers can convert almost any given kind of data. They also are able to process data of any
particular size. Microsoft Word, or Microsoft Excel files; everything can be changed into the label format. The biggest
advantage with the new age printers is that they can be used easily to print different fonts, bold or italicized letters. As
a matter of fact the best ones can also generate and print barcodes of the required data is fed into their system.
Shipping companies like FedEx or Gati are increasingly using the Thermal Label Printer for printing out their labels. Unlike
other types of printers which require the text to be printed out on a normal paper and then be glued to the cartons or
shipment boxes; these printers can print them directly on stickers and then used. They use a specially manufactured type of
heat sensitive papers which would make the process of printing labels very easy.
Thermal Printers have in fact revolutionized the entire process of printing and has made printing cheaper as well as
affordable for many people. The printers being manufactured are also very simple in design and use and do not necessarily
require specially trained professionals. On first buying the printer, the company usually supplies the stock paper as well as
the special ink.
