How To Print Your Own Address Labels

Printing address labels in house can be an efficient and cost effective way to help you dispatch parcels and letters in busy work environments. They can also act as another platform to reinforce your brand. At Crown Labels we regularly need to dispatch up to 100 parcels and letters each working day - by storing our customers' addresses within a database and using a desktop label printer we are able to print each address label off in seconds. Here's what you need to carry out the same process in your home or workplace:

1. Buy A Desktop Label Printer

For printing small to medium address labels a small desktop label printer is perfectly suited to this task. This is what we use at Crown Labels for all our parcel and letter dispatches. These printers are easy to install, don't take up much desk space and are inexpensive to purchase. Prices vary typically from between £200 to £400 (exc. VAT) depending on the make and model you go for. Popular models include the Zebra GK-420T printer and the Godex RT series. Both are reliable, come with free to use software and are straight forward to install. These label printers are installed in a similar manner to a normal A4 sheet printers, they need a driver to be installed and a single USB connection.
