What are Laser Sheets?

Laser labels, or more commonly referred to as laser sheets, are made from pressure-sensitive materials and are ideal for printing high-quality graphics and text from your home and/or office printers. Laser sheets vary in coating depending on if they are intended for use with a laser printer, or an inkjet printer.

Common Uses for Laser Labels

Common ways people or businesses use laser labels are for:

  • Retail labels
  • Cosmetics labels
  • Clothing labels
  • Beverage labels
  • Jar Labels
  • Canning labels
  • Safety/warning labels
  • Mailing labels
  • Address labels
  • Storage labels
  • Color-coded labels

The Benefits & Disadvantages of Laser Printing

Laser printers utilize a special laser to produce an image that is electrically charged on a drum. Next, the image is rolled through a powdered toner. Using heat, the toner is bonded onto the paper. Laser printers are ideal for business applications that require high printing speeds to handle larger printing volumes. Other benefits include sharper text quality and longer-lasting toner cartridges. The two main disadvantages of laser printers is that replacement toner cartridges cost slightly more than an inkjet printer, and sometimes detailed graphics will not print as well.

The most popular laser printers today are manufactured by Brother, Canon, HP, Lexmark, and Xerox.

The Benefits and Disadvantages of Inkjet Printing

Inkjet printers use tiny droplets of ink that are propelled onto the paper during the printing process and dried afterwards. Inkjet printers are more commonly used because they are affordable, easy to use, and can print vivid colors. Other benefits of inkjet printers include the ability to print photo-quality images, suitable for occasional use in an office or home, and there many cost-conscious options. The two main disadvantages of inkjet printing are that the ink cartridges do not usually last very long, and printing speeds are slower compared to a laser printer.

The most popular inkjet printers today are manufactured by Epson, Brother, Canon, and HP.
