Easy to install and ready to print quickly, the streamlined PC42t thermal transfer desktop printer is an economical choice for media up to 110 mm (4.3 in) wide. Able to accommodate large ribbon sizes, the PC42t printer can print longer before needing media replenishment, thus improving the productivity of labeling workflows.
