How to choose
How we test

The best thermal printers are useful anyone who needs to print labels, receipts and similarly small items. They tend to be smaller, lighter and more reliable than standard home printers, and they usually require less maintenance. Best of all, they don't use ink cartridges or toner: all you need is paper and the printer itself. That makes thermal printers cheaper to run if you're printing labels in bulk.
