Good labelling is essential to meet health and safety requirements, give an accurate description of a product and increase efficiency in product processing and handling.

Once you have got your wording and content right, you need to identify the most efficient and cost effective way to print your labels. This short guide from the experts at AIS Ltd can help you make the best decision for your company.

What are label printers?

In a nutshell, a label printer is able to produce a professional style of label to meet the requirements of your industry. For example, in the health industry label printers can be used for patient ID and wristbands. In retail, pricing labels, shipping and packaging labels can be generated and in the food and beverage industry labels containing important information about ingredients, allergens and storage instructions can be printed. Your company can also benefit from rapidly produced visitor identification badges and hazard warning labels - to name but a few.

What is the best label printer for me?

These Zebra label printers, which are supplied, installed and supported by the team here at AIS, will cover all your labelling needs.


An industrial label printer is durable and offers outstanding quality. It offers quick printing and reliability in a fast paced, high demand workplace. It is designed to handle high volumes of printing. This is a strong and economical option for a small to medium manufacturing, warehousing or distribution organisation.


A label printer suitable for a desktop is a good alternative if space is tight. The machine is compact and easy to use. It is a very affordable option for low and medium print requirements. This could be well utilised in a healthcare setting, for example.


Mobile label printers are increasing in popularity. They offer freedom and increased efficiency to businesses working on location. A mobile device keeps businesses working on the go and allows printing on site.

Hazardous label printers

If you work in an industry covered by the new hazardous chemical regulations then this is the machine for you. By law, labels need to identify hazardous chemicals and give specific hazard warnings. If the same chemical is transferred into a new container, the new container must also carry the warning. This label printer is compliant with new classification requirements and obligations according to GHS.

If you are still unsure which machine would work best for you then contact our specialist advisors who will be more than happy to talk through your requirements - ensuring you get the right label printer for your unique needs.
