Zebra Technologies' TLP 3842 barcode printer brings high quality printing and convenience to speciality barcode applications.

When Small is Mighty

The TLP 3842 barcode printer presents direct thermal or thermal transfer barcode printing options to vertical, high-paced industries and businesses. The 3842 smoothly prints high-resolution, two-dimensional barcode labels not possible on larger desktop models.

The healthcare industry is just one of the domains that will profit from the advantages of the TLP 3842 printer.

Small label sizes are continually needed for test tube labelling and records barcoding, for example. Parts labelling, jewellery tags and electrical component labelling are only a few of the additional uses for the TLP 3842 barcode printer.

Standing at only 6.8 inches (173mm), the TLP 3842 barcode printer still enables both thermal transfer as well as direct printing functions and allows media printing width of just over 4 inches (104mm), adjusting speciality label options to industry needs.

Clarity and Convenience

The TLP 3842 barcode printer maintains its high resolution of 300dpi at two inches (51mm) per second, enabling excellent graphics and clarity of its five standard fonts, expandable to eight.

The TPL 3842 comes standard with a 512 KB SRAM and 1 MB Flash, so users need no longer worry about label order memory capacity or processing speed in a desktop label printer.

Connectivity of the TLP 3842 gives businesses convenient options with either the USB, parallel or Serial-RS232 interface choices.

The 3842 model has the ultra-convenient OpenACCESS design and the clear drop-in roll well window that enables businesses to check at a glance the remaining media availability.

The head up sensor immediately notifies the user if position adjustment is required, eliminating the guesswork and streamlining printing efforts right from the start, all protected from casual damage by a double wall of sturdy plastic.


The TLP 3842 combines convenience and efficiency into a compact barcode printer, meeting businesses' speciality label printing needs.
