The Zebra GK240d direct thermal label printer is probably the UK’s best selling label printer. The incredibly simple clamshell design allows the quick change of labels, plus a slot at the rear of the printer allows the use of fanfold tags or labels. There is no printer ribbon, no ink or any other consumable other than the labels.

This model is has USB and serial connectivity and is supplied with the basic Zebra Designer labelling software and Windows drivers so printing from most Windows applications is very easy. As this model is extensively used for printing shipping and courier labels, it has become the label printer of choice for printing Royal Mail DMO labels. In fact this model is recommended by Royal Mail. The GK420d can take a range of labels including the standard 150mm x 100mm courier labels and labels supplied by Royal Mail and Parcelforce.

Despite its low cost the Zebra GK2420d label printer is surprisingly robust, our own warehouse uses several and they have performed day in day out with nothing more than an occasional clean of the printhead. The label print speed is excellent and the clarity of print on barcodes is excellent ensuring that the tracking of stock and parcels is never a problem.

5 stars AS good as ever Written by

never fail to deliver both on price and service -thank you

5 stars Label printer that does the job Written by

Great little label printer, that I bought as I'd opened a Royal Mail account and needed a label printer. This was the one they recommended, and it was economic and works like a dream. Only slightly negative comment, is the installation instructions...I'm not fluent in Mandarin, so waited for Royal Mails instructions!!

5 stars Excellent Written by

Purchased this on behalf of my company just over a fortnight ago now and this has reduced dispatch times dramatically, helping to allow my staff to focus on other tasks. I can't recommend this printer highly enough, and it will pay for itself within a year due to the ink cost saving!

4 stars Reliable workhorse Written by

A reliable, industrially suited printer, best choice every time.

5 stars ebaying joy Written by

This thermal printer has nearly halved my packing time. No more chopping up labels and taping them to boxes. Money very well spent and a very easy to use sturdy printer. A very uncomplicated printer perfect for printing My Hermes and Parcel Force labels. Am very pleased and enjoying the extra spare time on my hands!

4 stars A good no-fuss printer Written by

Purchased this from labelzone at a price cheaper than I could find elsewhere on the net. It's a good, uncomplicated, budget option and seems to perform well (although we haven't had it long). As with all budget label printers, there are a lot of plastic parts which makes it feel a bit cheap but then you get what you pay for and it doesn't compromise functionality. I would certainly buy another one if required.

I need to print directly to the printer from a PC application I am writing. I can directly control the RS232 port, so does the printer support direct access using, say, Epson print codes?

Hi Dave there is a programming manual available here

This should give you what you need. If not let us know and we can put in touch with Zebra tech support.

Regards

Is this printer compatible for wireless network so more than one computer can print to this printer?

This printer does not have wireless capabilities, you would need to look at the GX range of Zebra printers which have a wireless option available.

what is the biggest size labels i can order for the above printer? Regards James

The maximum print width for this printer is 104mm, the maximum length this printer will print is 990mm (using continuous media)  attached is a list of Direct Thermal Labels that will fit this printer.

Does this printer work Mac OS 10.6 and can it be networked Thanks

Zebra do not supply the drivers for their products to work with Mac, they only provide windows drivers.  This particular printer does not have a network card onboard, however you can buy a networked version of the GK420D.
