Leading the way
in versatile and
affordable
desktop printing
These space-saving, quiet,
user-friendly printers bring
new levels of performance
to the Zebra Desktop
family. The 2844 bar code
label printers are ideal for
low-volume applications
needing 104mm (4")
labels, such as parcel
shipping, whilst the smaller
2824 is perfect for retail
product and shelf labelling
or any other application
where only a small label is
wanted. And if you need
high-resolution printing,
the TLP 3842 is the answer.
Superior
performance at a
small price
These classy little printers
from Zebra bring fast,
professional labelling to
your desk, small office,
laboratory or anywhere
you need to print small
numbers of bar code
labels, receipts and tags.
They are sturdily built with
a double-walled ABS casing
and offer many “big
printer” features but at an
extremely affordable price.
However, they are designed
for easy use, so even
complete beginners will
find them simple to set
up and operate.
Thoughtfully
designed and
competitively priced!
