Product Overview

Print labels from your PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet using USB, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Or alternatively use it in standalone mode by selecting and printing labels previously designed and uploaded to the memory, using the integrated backlit LCD display. When used with special rolls, you can print labels that can contain both black and red print without needing any ink.

And when you can print custom sized labels up to one metre in length using the built-in cutter and continuous rolls, you can see why this is the most advanced label printer available.
