TYPES OF ZEBRA® PRINTERS
Like other printers, Zebra printers have several models from which you can choose. The model you choose should be based upon your individual needs, including the amount of printing it will be required to do. It's important to choose the Zebra printer that will have the capacity to handle your workload. Choosing one that can handle more than your workload is not economically sound but will do no damage; choosing a printer that is not designed for the amount of work you require will shorten its lifespan and cause a great deal of downtime.
In order to determine the best Zebra printer for your needs, you must evaluate those needs before you begin shopping. Without knowing the needs of your company or the areas where the Zebra printers will be used, you cannot know the type of printer that would work best for your needs. Printers are designed for a certain capacity, and if you buy a printer that has a capacity higher than your needs, you will spend more money for a printer than you need to do. Though not economically sound, it's better to buy a printer than can do more work than you need than less. However, evaluating your needs before you buy a Zebra printer will allow you to choose the model that comes closest to meeting your needs.
Is there a special reason to choose Zebra printers instead of another brand? That is something you need to evaluate as you search for printers. Look at each manufacturer and the stability of each model within the range you need. Even if you have already decided to buy Zebra, look at other manufacturers in order to reaffirm whether you feel comfortable with your decision. It's important to be positive before you buy a label printer instead of looking later and not being certain if you chose the right printer for your company's needs.
Do not think just because a label says it is for a certain purpose that you cannot use it for other purposes as well. The only exception to this is that of barcode labels that are too narrow to be used for much else. Labels of all sizes have dual purposes, which is what makes them so versatile for both home and office.
