Cheap Canon printers and self-sticking labels


D

David Harper

It is time to replace my 5-year-old canon printer (MP-240 - $60). One of its
primary duties is printing self-sticking mailing labels (2 to a sheet). This
printer feeds from the back and the printed sheets come out the front.
Printing peel-off labels has never caused a problem.

Looking at new (under $100) Canon printers I see that most of them now feed
from the front with the printed output coming out the front. There must be a
tight bend in there somewhere! How well do self-sticking , peal-off labels
work in such printers?

I don't have a Canon printer but I do have an HP 932 that has the same
mechanical set up with the paper going in the front and the printed age
coming out the front. The roller in the HP is about the same size as
the roller in a standard typewriter. I have printed 1X3 labels 20 per
page and had no problem with them coming off.

My pure guess (I use an IP4000 to print 21 label A4 without problem)
would be that if the label sheets are young out of the factory you
should have no problem, as the sheets get old both the flexibility and
the stickiness tend to go down and the possibility of a label rolling
off in the printer must go up! You are right to be wary I think with a
full turn roller... the thaught of trying to scrape off the mess in a
modern printer!! They seem to be made purposely ever more difficult to
get apart nowadays with their click together construction. C+
