Which printer do we support?

Datamax E-Class printers are those we primarily support. The Information below on suppliers and stock sizes are helpful. Additionally, we do have some support for ZPL printers, typically the Zebra brand. We also allow for some ‘generic’ output files from Freman, however we do not actively promote other branded printers or imply they will be sure to work.

Thermal Label Printer Solution

Datamax provides a range of label printers, which work very efficiently with Freman.
With the E-Class line of label printers being the most common label printer this is a great choice for printing labels out of Freman.
