Fanfold labels are typically precut stickers mounted on a continuous liner, which is folded like a fan for easy stacking. As such, they do not require a cardboard core or spool when used in a direct thermal printer. However, since they are placed outside the machine’s media holder, the entire stack is positioned behind or beside the unit and is fed through the label slot while printing.
Strictly speaking, fanfold labels do not need a label holder for the printer to process them. Label holders take up extra space and add to your equipment costs. However, you do need one to protect your stickers from liquid spills and other potentially damaging substances.
Of all the desktop direct thermal printers, Dymo LabelWriter makes the only units that do not rely on fanfold labels. Brother label printer has its own fanfold label line, to be used only on its high-end models. Other brands can work with generic labels, which are less expensive.
Yes, direct thermal fanfold labels will work well with desktop label printers like Rollo and Zebra. To load the labels, you can simply put them behind the printer since they come in stacks.
Fanfold labels are the best for high-volume printing, as they typically contain more labels per pack as compared to roll labels. With various labels you may need to print, fanfold labels can be used for continuous printing without the trouble of frequently replacing a label roll.
Fanfold labels are fed through a slot at the back of the printer and are placed below or behind the printer, no need to install them on a label holder.
