Precision Label Products vs. DuraLabel
Review our vinyl tape pricing and see the instant positive impact a Precision printer or DuraLabel trade-in will have on your label printing budget.
We know it gets confusing when numbers and percentages of savings are thrown around. Anyone can promise savings. For example, "The DuraLabel Pro 300 can save you 40 to 50% on your labeling and sign production costs!" or "The DuraLabel PRO 300 Cuts Costs - Saves Money: Supplies for the DLP300 cost 30% to 50% less than what you'll pay for supplies for comparable machines, saving you money". But, 30 to 50% savings compared to what? Prices and savings don't mean much without direct price and product quality comparisons with the competition.

The DuraLabel DLP300 Economy Starter Kit contains one less 4" tape and four less 2" tapes than the Precision Starter Package – for an additional cost of $1,304. DuraLabel claims "Save over $900 off printer!", but what does that $900 "savings" actually represent? What are the DuraLabel products priced at to start with? The bottom line is this: Claims of savings mean little when customers are asked to pay twice the price. With DuraLabel, you will always pay 2 to 3 times more compared to Precision's pricing.
The Problem with Proprietary Products
Some label printers on the market are proprietary regarding acceptable print supplies available. For instance, the orange DuraLabel Pro/Pro 300, 7000 and 9000 printers will only print labels with tape utilizing specialized DuraLabel cardboard tape cores. These cores contain an electronic fingerprint, e.g. Radio Frequency Identification tag (RFID). When this RFID tag is recognized by the DuraLabel Pro's RFID antenna, the DuraLabel Pro allows printing. If this tag is not present, the DuraLabel Pro simply will not print, regardless of the vinyl tape wound around the core.
DuraLabel went to the trouble of including this additional locking device to force DuraLabel customers into buying only higher priced DuraLabel tape. Precision printers do not have a lockout and will print with all compatible supplies, including DuraLabel, so using up existing stock would never be a problem.
Quality: Precision vs. DuraLabel
Our high-quality Precision 345 thermal label printers are actually the same OEM (original equipment manufacturer) as the DuraLabel Pro/Pro 300. The only thing different, besides price and orange color, is the DuraLabel lock-out feature. In fact, all of Precisions' printers, tapes and ribbons are guaranteed to be of equal or higher quality. We're so confident in our product quality that we back up all sales with our 60-day money-back guarantee with no restocking fee. This includes our free lifetime software and hardware support along with our free loaner printer program.
So, whether you are currently a DuraLabel customer or currently considering a thermal label printer purchase, Precision is the smart choice alternative.
