Zebra or Dymo Printers?

Post by ccbug_admin » Wed Aug 23, 2017 7:22 pm

I often see questions regarding what sort of printers one should use for printing labels related to check-in. The two main choices are either Zebra or Dymo.
The Zebra printers are in the $300-$500 ballpark each. The Dymo printers are in the $50-$75 ballpark each.
I have used both types of printers and have decided to standardize on the Zebras. In my experience, the Zebras are: (1) more expensive, (2) require more configuration, (3) have more costly labels, and (4) break down more often.
Now part of this may be due to the age of the Zebras we have, I inherited them, so I cannot say that this is not part of the problem...but, imho, it is a lot easier to keep a few spare Dymo's on hand and rip and replace as needed than to do so with Zebras. Letting $50-$75 sit on a shelf in inventory is more palpable then $300-$500 on a shelf.
Just my $.02.
