Seiko Smart printer ?

by Willy / May 5, 2005 1:53 PM PDT

Have a client with an older smart printer SL-200 from Seiko. Wants to know if the Dymo label printers uses the same type of labels? I do know the Seiko labels are for thermal paper media. Can he use Dymo labels in a Seiko printer. Can't seem to get a straight answer on the Dymo labels specs. TIA -----Willy

While my best is the thermal material (the printing surface) is the same, slight tweaks such as how they encode TOP OF FORM or END OF FORM so the printer knows how to stop spewing the lable as well as mechanical differences (spool size) make this... unlikely.

You could buy one roll and try it out.

-> Here's why no answer. It's an under 10 buck item and there is no support today for paper supplies on the help desk. Also, such a question falls flat at the support desk since its not unlike calling Ford to ask if the GM starter fits on your Ford. They would never try it.

I had the same thoughts, this guy really loves that little printer. Since about the only common labels found in the local shops are for Dymo and his aren't common anymore, he wondered. Of course, I did mention google for an online label vendor. I guess he's low on labels or he finally gotten through the pile others left behind. Thanks -----Willy

The guy has moved on to a Dymo printer. Rather than fight it and the infrequent use(odd, seems more) the cost isn't a problem. Now, I have a great little dodad for my 3-ring binders to ID them. I get alot of gifts or "ifs" of devices. Thanks -----Willy
