CHOOSING THE RIGHT ZEBRA® PRINTER
Buying Zebra printers is not as simple as choosing a pack of pens or copy paper. It's essential to know what your needs are for quality and quantity before you even begin to look for a label printer. In order to choose the right printer, you have to evaluate your company's needs and what function the Zebra® printers will perform. That means you have to know how many labels need to be printed daily, the type of labels, the purpose for the labels, and the size labels you use.
Only after you evaluate your needs for both quantity and print quality are you ready to begin looking for the right Zebra printers for your company's use. In this way, you know what you need to research and what size printer you need. Depending on the needs of the area that will be using the printer, you may choose a desktop or handheld version. If the printer needs to be transportable, you may want to choose one that is easy to pick up and take from place to place. In fact, if the printers are used in several areas, you might just want to purchase Zebra printers that are small and compact enough to connect to the computers where the label programs are installed.
If you conduct some research before you buy a Zebra printer, you will be able to find the right printer for your company without spending more money than is necessary. After all, you don't want to buy a big label printer when a smaller one will do the job just as well. In addition, you don't want to pay extra money for a printer that is capable of printing more labels that you reasonably need. Certainly if you are looking toward the long-term it makes economic sense, but if your company has always printed about the same number of labels, it is unnecessary to buy a printer that has higher quantity capabilities.
