Printing to a roll of labels?

Post

Hello all!

I am in a lab, and we make a lot of documents for subjects.  I use FM to add info to documents that we print out, and it's great.

However, some documents come pre-printed to us from elsewhere, and I need to label them.  I would like to do what the hospital we work with does, which is to print out labels from a roll, and then stick them on these documents.  

Does anyone have any good recommendations for a label printer?  I know Dymo and Brother make models, but the reviews are mixed.

I have two things I want in a label printer:

1. I don't want to print off a continuous tape, but rather from a roll of die-cut labels.
2. I want to be able to use a label template that exists in FM Pro, so I don't have to make anything from scratch.

If anyone has advice, I would love to hear it!

Thanks so much!
