Thermal printers can be used to print receipts, labels, tags, and other similarly sized media at point of sale (POS) locations. Direct thermal printers and thermal transfer printers use heat instead of ink to print on coated thermal media. A parallel, serial, or USB port allows a receipt printer to be connected to a computer. An Ethernet port or wireless capabilities may enable it to be connected to a computer network. Thermal printers can be used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale.
Zebra Technologies manufactures barcode, receipt, kiosk, and radio-frequency identification (RFID) printers and accessories. The company, founded in 1969, is headquartered in Lincolnshire, IL.

Does not ship with the required kits for ribbon use. A Gear Kit and the Ribbon Holding Kit are required to be purchased. Expect to have duplicate parts in the kits also. There are two different gear kits based off the Serial Number. About another $150 later you can use ribbbon for permanent label printing. Works as intended after installing the extra parts. Inside there is pictures of the installed components but they are not there.
not all the parts were in the printer and am unable to return it. We purchased it for a business and didnt get to it right away .. now we are out of return policy. If you get it - check it out throughly the day it is recieved!
The printer came in with out some parts. We returned it the first time and the second time happened the same thing. Unbelievable !!
