Zebra TLP2824Z Printer

Zebra TLP2824 Plus A newer version of this item is available.
It is replaced by the Zebra TLP2824 Plus.
The TLP2824Z is capable of direct thermal or thermal transfer printing and has one of the smallest footprints of any two-inch desktop printer in the industry, this easy-to-use TLP2824Z fits into places other printers cannot, without sacrificing speed, print quality or media capacity. This space conservation is great for the typically congested areas around cash registers, desks, and countertops. The TLP2824Z integrates easily into a variety of mid- to low-volume printing applications including: Shipping/Receiving, Warehouse shelf labeling and inventory control, Retail product marking, and coupon/receipt printing, E-commerce applications and Postage printing.
