Hi Lu,

We use a Brother 4000 series color laser printer, and print on HP double sided gloss brochure paper, 200g.  The thickest they make.  Its calendared for smoothness; its archival; the ‘toner’ is actually polymerized to the surface of the paper, making it near impossible to scrape off.  We have tested it in ethanol, PG, and water; the toner does not come off like standard toner.  Finally, we are able to print at 3pt font (Helvetica) with no loss in resolution.  A single black cartridge (ca. 80$ USD) will print several hundred pages of labels before replacing.

Hello all,

I need to replace our old, but so far very reliable HP laser printer. We use it for all our insect specimen label printing (font size 4). What kind of printer are you all using to print labels? Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
-- Lu
