Great Little Printer

 

We use this printer to create file labels for client files and internal files. We used to use laser labels, but they were harder to get lined up, and more difficult to manage when you only need a few. The nice thing is that "what you see is what you...

Perfect for the home office

 

The printer software makes it easy to cut and paste addresses directly into the application. I have loaded up to 50 addresses into the software and it prints effortlessly.
