Desktop barcode printers are suited for retail applications, back-office label printing, or small-scale low volume labelling operations. Unlike industrial barcode printers, desktop printers have a small footprint so will fit on practically any desk and have the same print quality and similar print speeds to industrial barcode printers. If you are looking for a printer that can easily handle 1000 or less labels a week, the desktop printer is the best option. For higher volume print applications, an industrial thermal barcode label printer is the better choice.
