Hi – any suggestions for a 4″x6″ thermal printer that can print labels for the following:

  • Australia Post (domestic. regular and express)
  • Australia Post Standard International
  • Fastway (domestic)
  • DHL eCommerce Packet Plus (international)
  • Sendle

Ideally I’d have just one Zebra or Dymo for all of the above, not having to change paper/etc, and just pop it on the network so anyone could print from it, but would like to hear from someone who already has set up something this.

Printing on A4 paper is no longer efficient….

Howdy

We use (and sell, although not plugging just advising) both Dymo and Zebra… Both are excellent items, even brother (which we do not sell) has some decent 6×4 printers as well…

If you are a smaller operation and run from home (generally inferring lower volumes), the Dymo seems to be the one for choice – namely as it can take other labels should your requirements change – like barcode labels – smaller shipping etc etc.

From a robust perspective and high volume site that JUST WANTS 4×6 the Zebra 420DT is awesome – as are there other printers (various types of 4×6 they have)… Although price point tends to be higher on zebras.

It will come down to how you use it and how often and your setup.. As Tommy says, we also use the Zebra 420 in the warehouse and its faultless (unless i have to reset the settings on the odd occasion) – whereas the Dymo has more of a consumer feel to the software and so forth.

Just a quick question, you mention Australia Post Standard International – i dont believe that you can reduce theres to a 4×6 label stick on as they need 2 copies in clear sleeves/envelopes outside the box as least (some locations still need 4 copies printed (1 ap – 1 customs – 1 you – 1 copy on the parcel itself).. Although other requests are achievable.

Let us know how you go..
