What to consider when buying a printer

When buying a printer it is important to consider the label size requirement of each courier you will be using on Starshipit. Most couriers only allow printing labels in a 100x150mm (A6) size, including Australia Post, Fastway and CouriersPlease. For DHL Express we can generate the labels either as 100x150mm, 100x200mm or A4 sizes.

You will also want to ensure you are buying a printer and labels which support Thermal Transfer. More info on Thermal Transfer here.

Make sure the printer works with Windows 10 and/or MacOS and can be connected by USB. Networked printers are also supported by Starshipit, however this requires additional networking setup from your end.
