  • How does a shipping label printer work?

    Shipping label printers use thermal printing technology. They heat a thermal print head, which then transfers ink from a thermal ribbon onto the label material, creating the printed image. The printer receives shipping label data from the connected computer or shipping software and prints the labels accordingly.

  • What kind of labels can be printed with a shipping label printer?

    Shipping label printers can print various types of labels, including adhesive labels with integrated shipping carriers' formats (such as USPS, UPS, FedEx), as well as custom labels with barcodes, text, graphics, and other relevant information based on the business's requirements.
