While there are hundreds of printers available today for standard printing there are only a couple of visitor label printers that will produce visitor labels for your visitors when they sign in through an electronic visitor management system. Which visitor label printer should you use?
DYMO Visitor Management Label Writer 450 and 450 Dual
The DYMO visitor label printer range includes the very popular 450 and the 450 Dual. The dual Twin Turbo visitor label printer allows you to include 2 roles of labels for the busiest reception areas.
Brother Visitor Management Label Writer QL 720N
Along comes the Brother QL-710W and QL-720NW label printers which now support AirPrint.
This is the smartest looking label printer I have ever seen to produce Visitor Labels.
Comparing visitor label printers is not like comparing Google and Altavista. It’s not like comparing Gucci and Target in fact comparing visitor label printers comes down to 2 key features.
Visitor Management visitor label printing key feature 1 – Wireless Printing
Wireless printing or printing using Bluetooth technology is a feature now available in the Brother QL visitor label printer range. This feature at the time of writing this article is not available in the DYMO label printer. The Brother QL printers offer ultra-fast print speeds of up to 93 labels per minute which is perfect for groups of pre-registered visitors.
Wireless printing opens up the opportunity to use the Brother visitor label printer to print visitor labels from an iPad
Visitor Management visitor label printing key feature 2 – Auto cut off
The auto cut off feature that is in the Brother visitor label printer is gold. One of the issues that appears from time to time with the DYMO visitor label printer is that the visitor has to tear off the label and if they tear in the wrong direction the visitor label some times will not tear off correctly. The issue with the DYMO visitor label printer can be greater when used inside a visitor management kiosk.
Over the past 7 years as we have provided visitor management software all over the globe the DYMO visitor label printer has clearly been the most popular printer of choice by our customers including manufacturing, office, construction, schools, windfarms and many other types of businesses
Now that the Brother QL visitor label printer range includes wireless printing and also has the auto cut off feature it is hard to go past this printer for printing visitor labels.
Connect your DYMO or Brother visitor label printer to a visitor management system.
