Desktop printer - a small footprint printer designed for desktop use. Models are available with either exclusive direct thermal use - called direct thermal printers (so no facility for using thermal transfer labels and thermal transfer ribbons) or both direct thermal and thermal transfer use (called thermal transfer printers). Zebra desktop printers use labels supplied on 25mm cores and have a maximum roll capacity of 5" outside diameter. Labels manufactured for Zebra industrial printers are not suitable for use with Zebra desktop printers due the label core size. The Zebra desktop printer range includes LP2824, TLP2824, LP2844, TLP2844, GK420d, GK420t, GX420d, GX420t, GX430t.
Industrial printer - a printer designed for industrial use - so generally manufactured with metal case and frame and so being more suitable for use in warehouse and factory situations. Models are available with either exclusive direct thermal use - called direct thermal printers (so no facility for using thermal transfer labels and thermal transfer ribbons) or both direct thermal and thermal transfer use (called thermal transfer printers). Zebra industrial printers use labels supplied on 76mm cores and have a maximum roll capacity of 8" outside diameter. Labels manufactured for Zebra desktop printers are not suitable for use with Zebra industrial printers due the label core size. The Zebra industrial printer range includes ZT200, ZM400, 105SL, 110Xi4, ZT410, ZT420.

Direct thermal printing - uses chemically treated, heat-sensitive media that blackens when it passes under the thermal printhead. Direct thermal printers have no ink, toner, or ribbon. Their simple design makes thermal printers durable and easy to use. Because there is no ribbon, direct thermal printers cost less to operate than inkjet, laser, impact, and thermal transfer printers. Most mobile printers use direct thermal technology. Thermal media images may fade over time. If the label is overexposed to heat, light, or other catalysts, the material will darken and make the text or bar code unreadable. For these reasons, direct thermal printing is not used for lifetime identification applications. The readability of direct thermal labels, wristbands, and receipt papers varies greatly, depending on the usage conditions, but the technology provides ample lifespan for many common bar code printing applications including shipping labels, patient and visitor identification, receipts, and ticket printing.

Thermal transfer printing - a thermal printhead applies heat to a ribbon, which melts ink onto the material to form the image. The ink is absorbed so that the image becomes part of the media. This technique provides image quality and durability that is unmatched by other on-demand printing technologies. Thermal transfer printers can accept a wider variety of media than direct thermal models, including paper, polyester, and polypropylene materials. Thermal transfer printers can create extremely durable wristbands, asset tags, and certification labels, in addition to common labels, tags, and tickets. The specific label material and ribbon must be carefully matched to ensure print performance and durability. By selecting the right media-ribbon combination, as well as specialty adhesives, users can create archival-quality labels to withstand temperature extremes, ultraviolet exposure, chemicals, sterilization, and more. Typical thermal transfer applications include product identification, circuit board tracking, permanent identification, sample and file tracking, asset tagging, inventory identification, certification labels such as UL/CSA, laboratory specimens, cold storage and freezers and outdoor applications
