The advantages of printing labels in-house include fast turnaround, low cost, control of the project and ability to print a few, or thousands, quickly and cost-effectively. Printing 11x17” sheet labels can cut printing costs in half for metered printing. They allow for fewer passes through the printer for the same amount of label output.
For businesses that lease laser printers, there is usually a “click charge.” When per-click charges mean one click per sheet, printing the biggest possible sheet can result in lower monthly charges. In all cases, the 11” x 17” label sheets yield 2 sheets of labels for each sheet printed, doubling the throughput of the typical 1UP label sheet, and speeding the run of the print job. They can halve the time of the print job and sometimes the cost as well.
