When it comes to barcode labeling hardware and supplies, the plethora of options to choose from can feel inundating. Who has the best equipment? What happens if the equipment malfunctions? How much is in the budget? Is it worth the cost of the equipment to print our own barcode labels?
Printing barcode labels or tags in-house can increase productivity. Zebra Technologies is an expert in the barcoding technology field with their rigorous testing of their own products and multiple R&D facilities. Zebra is one of the largest converters in the USA for barcode labels.
Using the right combination of ribbon and printers for barcode labeling will improve the imaging on labels for proper scanning and prolong the life of the printhead in the barcode printer. Imprint Enterprises has wide selection of Zebra hardware and supplies to choose from.
The printer models listed offer various features that enhance their usability, performance, and durability. There are industrial barcode printers, mobile label printers, and more. Zebra’s top-quality enterprise-ready printers are easy to integrate, set up, and configure.
Zebra Quality Labels & Ribbons
Barcode labels come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and materials. There are also a variety of ribbons for barcode label printing. Thermal barcode ribbons come in wax, wax/resin, and resin material. Wax ribbon (paper-based material) is the most used material due to its low cost and ease of use. Direct thermal fuses ink onto the label material while the thermal transfer method prints images via wax or resin ribbons.
Food and beverage companies will need to consider pressure-sensitive prime labels. These items leverage flexographic and digital offset printing technologies to deliver professional, polished graphic treatments. Digital printing for prime labels enables you to adjust specifications as needed, change labels according to seasonality, print multiple SKUs, and personalize offerings according to location or client.
