Does anyone have experience of printing to a dedicated label printer used for printing small tickets for jewellery items. We would prefer it to work on a Mac using FileMaker 14 or above?
Dymo printers are often used with FileMaker solutions.
A jewelry store client of mine used a Zebra printer for years to print their teeny-tiny labels from Mac and Windows computers. After the Zebra croaked I suggested they try a $100 Dymo instead of the hundreds-of-dollars-more-expensive Zebra replacement. It was easier to set up, print quality just as good, and has been just as reliable. The client wanted fancy custom labels rather than Dymo's 30373-style rat tail labels for jewelry that only cost $6.99 for 400. So they spent hundreds of dollars they saved on custom colored and coated labels. Their choice. But they were thrilled with the change to Dymo.
I have had success with the Brother QL-720NW. One of them pumps out retail tags for jewelries. I would suspect the new QL-820NWB is just as good. Plenty of labels available, but maybe not as many as are available for the Dymo. I have heard good things about the Dymo, but have not tried one yet.
Thank you for your contributions and I thought I would give an update.
We have successfully set up a TSC label printer, TC300, which prints rat-tail labels from FileMaker on a Mac. We also bought a driver to make the printer work on the Mac. I have added the links below.

So far it works really well.
