Label Printers Printer Type

There are basically three categories of label printers, Industrial, DeskTop and Mobile.

  • Industrial:  Label printers are made to work 24/7 and allow for the largest ribbon and label rolls.  Typically a 1,476’ ribbon and 8” OD (outer diameter) roll.
  • DeskTop:  Label printers are typically smaller and are used for a lighter workload of 4-6 hours a day.  The ribbons typically are 1,182’ or less and the labels have an 6” OD (outer diameter) roll.
  • Mobile:  Label printers are very small and only hold a short roll of ribbons and labels.  The ribbon length is typically 100’ and the labels have a 2-3” OD (outer diameter) roll.
