Hi, I went through many of the forums but can't seem to find an exact answer in regard to a printer. I just called and was told that most customers experience better results with Epson or Canon printers. At the present moment, I'm using glossy paper labels. Which Epson or Canon printer would you recommend? I am willing to make the investment. At the moment I am using an HP Deskjet printer but am experiencing shifting. I know shifting is expected and I have also played around with the settings but settings don't offer many options for the HP printer I use. Please let me know, I hear Canon may be the best...I just don't know which model.

Canon has been my go-to choice for desktop inkjet printer models for a few years now. I've had a ton of success using our inkjet label materials with their PIXMA series of printers. It can be difficult to recommend very specific models just due to the fact the printer manufacturers tend to release new models very frequently. I've been using the Canon PIXMA TS9120 as my primary inkjet printer for a couple of years now and have always been very pleased with the results. Unfortunately, this specific model seems to be discontinued and not readily available at retail anymore, but I've used various PIXMA models over the years and I believe you should be fine working with one of their newer models. Before making a purchase look around online at customer reviews. That should be a pretty solid indicator of whether there's any major issues or limitations with a printer model.

Regardless of which printer model you wind up going with, just make sure to adjust the print settings to ensure the best possible print results. Most printer models are set as default to print on plain white copy paper. Adjusting the material type setting to a photo or glossy setting should provide excellent print results no matter which material you're printing on.

I hope this helps. If you need any additional information please just let us know.

Since the ts9120 is discontinued do you recommend the ts8320 or ts9520?

I haven't had the opportunity to test the Canon PIXMA TS8320 or the Canon PIXMA TS9520, but I've used a wide variety of PIXMA printer models over the years and I've always been pleased by the results when used with our selection of inkjet label materials. Based on the customer reviews at various online retailers and comparing the printer specifications to the PIXMA TS9120 that I've had so much success using, I'd say you should be able to buy either model with confidence.

Thanks your inquiry. While I haven't had a chance to use either of the model numbers that you listed in your post, I have used a number of other Canon PIXMA models and have always been very pleased with the results when printing on our selection of inkjet compatible materials. Regardless of which printer model you wind up choosing, the most important suggestion I can provide is to set the material type to a photo/glossy setting before printing on your labels. Most desktop inkjet printers are set as default to print on plain copy paper. Adjusting to a photo/glossy setting will ensure the best, most durable results when printing on more specialized label materials.

I hope this helps. If you need any additional information please just let us know.

I haven't had a chance to use a Macbook with an M1 chip, so I can't speak with certainty about compatibility on that kind of device. I did find a page on Canon's website that details Mac compatibility for their range of products though. You can access their compatibility checklist at the link below:

Canon Mac OS X Compatibility Checklist

I hope this helps. Please just let us know if you need any additional information.
