Find the type of Label Maker that’s right for you.


For household projects like organising cupboards, labelling boxes, and naming possessions, a handheld label maker may be the best option. With their compact size and portably functionality, handheld label makers are popular among students and households. Use one to label your BYOD devices for school or university and lower the risk of theft. Shop Officeworks’ range of personal label makers with brands like Brother and Dymo.


More heavy-duty label makers are ideal for small businesses, home offices, and for those who print labels on a regular basis. Desktop designs, while still somewhat compact, are sturdier and generally boast more capabilities than personal labellers. They usually work in conjunction with macOS and PC operating systems, as well as using labelling software.
