Honeywell Desktop Label printers

It prints faster than the E-Class and has a better user experience. It gives you “Smart Printing”. Add a keyboard, barcode scanner or other USB peripherals directly to the printer.

The Honeywell PC43t (with ink ribbon) and PC43d have a small footprint, whoich is great for space-constrained spaces.

If you don’t need these features and just want basic printing at the most affordable price, consider the Honeywell PC42t or PC42d.
