For printing color labels, especially when multiple colors are required, inkjet printers offer the most complete solution.
This is primarily due to the image quality provided. By allowing extremely precise placing of ink dots, these printers can more accurately reproduce an image, with very bright and vivid colors. This produces high-quality images and graphics.
Inkjet printers are also the only printers that can support either sheets or rolls.
Desktop inkjet printers, like those sold by HP, print labels in sheet format, while inkjet roll printers, such as those offered by Primera, can print labels in roll format. Both printer types provide similar quality results, though rolls printers can help reduce costs, by allowing for on-demand printing and the ability to load individual ink cartridges.
