5 Strategies to Enhance Label Printer Performance

A few months into the New Year, it's a great time to reassess your printers and supplies. And we can help you with your evaluation, ensuring your printers work seamlessly throughout the year. Regular maintenance is crucial to upholding your printer's efficiency and performance, minimizing downtime and reducing costs. Here are five actionable strategies to keep your printers running smoothly.

1. Choose the Right Printer

2. Prioritize Quality Supplies

Use Quality Supplies for Reliable Results

Colour inkjet printers are not compatible with all label materials. For thermal transfer printers, there are more options for compatibility, though they too can vary. Don’t forget to check in and examine the quality of your labels and their durability from time to time. If you’re unsure, contact us, and our labelling specialists can recommend suitable supplies to meet your needs. A study conducted by Print IT Reseller revealed that 85% of print quality issues can be attributed to subpar printing supplies. So, it’s essential to ensure you have the right equipment and supplies to ensure print quality. Investing in high-quality label printers and label materials is necessary to enhance the longevity and appearance of your labels.

3. Perform Regular Maintenance

Be Proactive with Label Printer Maintenance

Adopt a proactive approach to your label printer maintenance. Simple changes for thermal transfer printers, such as cleaning the printhead during ribbon changes, take less than 15 seconds and can significantly contribute to preventing printer downtime in the long term. Regular maintenance also reduces the risk of contaminants like dust and debris affecting print quality and extends the life of your industrial thermal transfer printer. Most color inkjet printers have internal cleaning options, but you should also consult your owner’s manuals to see what other periodic maintenance should be done.

4. Standardize Printers and Supplies

Streamline Operations with Standardization

Standardize your label printers and label supplies across your organization for streamlined operations. Equipment standardization simplifies IT processes, reduces staff training periods, and minimizes waste. Standardization also promotes economies of scale, allowing buyers to get the best prices for label printers and supplies.

5. Collaborate with Supportive Suppliers

Forge Partnerships with Supportive Suppliers

Working with a supportive supplier has very tangible benefits! Choosing a supplier with expertise in label printers, labels, ribbons, ink, substrates and software, like Neumann Marking Solutions, ensures quick and effective solutions when equipment issues arise.
