Thermal Transfer Label Printer Review

I have just finished the review on the new CP-2240 Label Printer from Argox.

Argox CP-2240 Label Printer

We put the Label Printer through a variety of tests, driving it hard at times and it passed every time! The CP-2240 has a small footprint, compact and very easy to use. Loading media and the large 300m ribbon is easy thanks to the large area inside the printer.

The Label Printer prints at a maximum speed of 7 inches per second and still produces a crisp clean print.

The Argox CP-2240 comes with Bartender UL, the free version of Bartender, which allows you to design your labels with text and barcodes. Drivers are also included for the various O/S and Print Utilities.
