You Can Now Thermal Print Your 4x6 Shipping Labels Wirelessly On Mac And Windows - A Guide To The New FreeX WiFi Thermal Printer

Welcome To Wireless

If printing shipping labels is part of your needs as a business, making the switch to a thermal printer would seem to be the most logical move. Along with the general benefits of thermal printing, such as rapid printing and high-quality results,  a printer like FreeX allows you to print wirelessly from both Mac and Windows.

To show you how the FreeX WiFi thermal printer can level up your business operations, we've put together this product guide to cover some of the key details.

Here, we'll explain FreeX's state-of-the-art features and why it's the essential thermal printer for any business large or small. If you're new to thermal printing and considering upgrading your old inkjet to something a little more efficient, we've included an explanation of how thermal printers work from start to finish.

So speaking of.. how exactly do these printers work?

Thermal printers use heat, rather than ink, to produce text and images on a label at swift speeds. The thermal printing process involves heating unique thermal labels and applying a dry, wax-based pigment that turns black as it reacts to the temperature change.

The prints that thermal printers produce are of higher quality than inkjet and laser printers. This is because they give a denser and more saturated color with deeper tones and less of a smudge. The thermal printing process is also faster than other printing systems, which is one reason companies who have mass label printing requirements typically opt for thermal to increase productivity throughout the day.

The key features of the FreeX WiFi thermal printer

Wirelesss Compatibility with both Windows and Mac 

Whether you're a Mac lover or a devoted Windows user, you can use the FreeX printer all the same with either system. Connecting your new thermal printer to your computer is hassle-free from start to finish.

Still, should you experience any difficulties, we have a step-by-step image-to-text guide on installing and setting up the printer with whichever system you fancy. We also have some helpful video tutorials to assist you further with any connection issues you may come across. 

No cords!

We won't blow smoke, but an office full of cords looks messy and is generally less inconvenient for everyone. Moreover, it can be frustrating trying to find the specific cable you might need to connect to... which device was it again. 

This is why most businesses prefer cordless office equipment whenever possible. You’ll be pleased to hear that FreeX comes equipped with WiFi capabilities. Meaning you don’t need a cord to print your 4x6 shipping labels and can seamlessly connect to your laptop or computer.

This is the case for both Windows and Mac devices. We're proud to be the first manufacturer to offer full cordless printing for both systems. This is a game-changer for offices working with both Apple and PC devices. Still prefer the cord? No worries! FreeX will also come accompanied with the standard USB connector just incase you'd prefer to skip the WiFi set up.

No ink or glue needed

Another key benefit of a high-quality thermal printer is that no ink or toner is ever needed to print your shipping labels. As you'll know, buying ink and toner can get pretty costly over time, and for companies that are looking to scale those expensive can eat away at your bottom line. For start-up companies and smaller businesses, these products have the potential to eliminate the costs and upkeep with standard ink label printers.

Therefore, although a thermal printer can seem to be an expensive investment upfront, the advantage of not having to buy ink will save you a considerable amount of money in the long run.

Additionally, when thinking about your business in the long term, your recurring savings will carry greater importance than the one-off cost of purchasing your first thermal printer.

Compatible with all thermal labels

Compatibility is key to easing workflow and making your shipments accessible for everyone. Unlike other brands that require exclusive labels, you can use FreeX with any direct thermal label brand.

The printer works with all labels' with a width between 20mm and 104mm. It also works with all popular barcode types, such as QR code, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, EAN-14, and many more.
