So you want to start thermal printing?

There are a few question you will need to ask to ensure you get the right equipment for you application.

How many thermal labels will you print in a day?

How many thermal labels will you be printing at one time?

You may require a label winder or to have you labels fan folded. There is no point to have a person rewindering labels at the end of a thermal printer.

Do you require label printing software?
