Many businesses and commercial operations still employ 3rd parties to produce labels for various purposes. While this may save a little labor every once in a while, many of your needs change without a moment's notice, resulting in waste. Try this professional label maker for almost any imaginable application. High resolution barcodes, warning labels, serial labels and other labels for commercial purposes will print quickly and last many years. Both models deliver the same label quality, but choose the PT-9800PCN for maximum connectivity capability over a network.
