Ideal for Printing Labels for Shop Window Displays!


Thermal Transfer printers such as the GK420T use a wax or resin ribbon to imprint the image onto the label. This gives a very sharp and durable print, which will not fade when left in direct sunlight.

Wax ribbons are cheaper than resin ribbons, but resin ribbons provide the most durable print quality and are ideally suited to outdoor use or shop window displays.

Having a dedicated price label printer means you can print price labels the instant you need them without having to re-load paper into a general purpose printer. Unlike inkjet printing, thermal printed labels give laser sharp print quality meaning that your products will scan first time, and your price labels will look great too adding quality to the presentation of your goods.

This printer can also be shared on your network so that you can print price labels from any networked PC.

We recommend: Using 2 Receipt Printers which will enable you to print labels for display in your shop windows to the GK420T (which don't fade in the sunlight) and labels for general display in your shop to the GK420D.
