Reduces stress and boosts productivity.
DYMOs The LabelWriter™ 5 Series printers help healthcare offices streamline all their labeling needs – from shipping to filing to visit management and more. In addition to being fast and accurate, the printers use automatic label recognitionTMwhich quickly informs users of the size, type and number of labels remaining, taking the guesswork out of keeping print jobs stress-free and with reduced waste.
The printers also use direct thermal technology, so there is no need for expensive ink or toner. There’s also no chance of running out of ink in the middle of an important project.
With a compact design, enhanced graphics mode for clear text, graphics and barcodes, the LabelWriter series also saves energy and protects your pocket with an automatic sleep mode.
