      I have an Epson R285. It's an inkjet, but I think it's now discontinued though you do sometimes find them on eBay. It's superb quality and has individual inks so cheap to refill, especially with compatible carts.

      I think lasers are generally better for high volume printing [hundreds of sheets] but are way more expensive.

          Hi. If your labels are black & white, then I'd recommend a laser printer. You can get B&W ones for about £50 - I have a Canon which works well.

          If colour then I've heard good things about Epson inkjet printers, but do read the reviews for individual models. I have a Canon which I'm really happy with. The quality of the paper will make a big difference to the print quality too.

            I have an Epson inkjet, constantly runs out of ink, constantly needs head cleaning, would never get one again

            Think I will get a laser printer soon for my labels

              I think you may need a printer which can produce waterproof labels. I'm sure I've read somewhere that this is required to comply with regulations - but please correct me if I am wrong.

                Ooh interesting Eizzil! Can you link?

                If waterproof is required, I'd go for B&W laser printer with laser labels as you can get the plastic ones (like the transparent ones) which wouldn't wash off.

                On the other hand, you could always look at getting some printed for you ... Depending on how many you need this may look better and be cheaper than buying a printer, as you can get them done waterproof AND in colour!

                    You are right Eizill. I am using both: inkjet and laser. Inkjet for soaps and laser for body care products, such as body butter, scrub, face masks etc.
