Questions and answers of the customers

  1. A

    Hi Raime, the P420T is a thermal transfer which requires wax ribbon to print and usually, your label's material is either artpaper or polyester. The Alpha 3R though is a direct thermal printer, which requires direct thermal paper. So, nope, can't use the same label. And the label's core might also be different.
