    Address Label Printer

    Hi,
    I'm after an address label printer. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    I'm now buying DVDs from Amazon, watching them, and selling them on. It's working out a LOT cheaper than LoveFilm etc. Plus I get to pick and choose what is sent to me, and I don't get scratched disks.

    Cheers...

    Re: Address Label Printer

    How about this plus "compatible" sheets of labels from your local stationary house?

    Then just use any old printer you already have.

    Re: Address Label Printer

    I've used the Dymo 400 - fast - uses thermal labels though which are more expensive than using sheet labels in a printer - but very convenient. (and I always a bit iffy about running part used sheets many times through a laser (or inkjet) printer)

    I've not known of any issues with this at work, this is what we have been doing as long as I can remember.

    Re: Address Label Printer

    Yeah, I'm not sure about putting A4 label sheets through the printer over and over again. That dymo looks pretty good though, I'll investigate further.

    Re: Address Label Printer

    I print my labels on hp9000 but it is not worth to buy just for this as you will need spare bedroom to fit it in but i suppose cheap black laser should do the job and be useful at home as well

    But that is an inkjet printer. A laser printer has the (hot) toner fuser so there is a risk of the heat softening the adhesive. While that isn't a problem doing one pass of A4 labels, multiple passes, printing a few labels at a time, might cause the adhesive to weaken and start shedding labels inside the printer. Not a risk I'd like to take.

    Re: Address Label Printer

    I print virtually thousands of labels on hp9000 which is laser without any issues.
    I think it is importnat to get labels designed for heat present in laser printers.

    Re: Address Label Printer

    We use sheets of labels where I work, and frequently send these through various laser printers multiple times without any issues. *I* usually use the "label" paper type in printer settings though many of our other users don't and even they have no problems.

    To be on the safe side, I usually suggest that people use the labels from the bottom of the page first so that, until the last row, the leading edge of the sheet is as stable as possible.
