Exceptionally compact and easy to use, this printer is simple to install and ready to print quickly. Quiet, reliable operation and an intuitive design make the PC42t Plus the right fit for light-duty labeling applications in a variety of industries.
Available in either 12.7 mm (0.5 in) or 25.4 mm (1 in) ribbon core configurations and with a print speed up to 125 mm (5 ips), the PC42t Plus supports media as wide as 110 mm (4.3 in) and fits right into existing printing environments. The 25.4 mm configuration is compatible with ribbon lengths up to 300 m (984 ft) — more than four times the length of competitive offerings.

With its affordable price and modern features, the PC42t printer represents a smart solution for the small or medium business looking to improve productivity in label-making operations. Economical to purchase and use, the PC42t printer is also a great choice for those looking to deploy thermal label printing for the first time, or for those transitioning away from more expensive inkjet- or laser-based label printing methods.
