Guest I have a small business for cosmetic items. I am now using a TLP 2844 thermal printer and am facing some problems with small labels. After two or three weeks the bar code will disappear and is not clear on the product. Could you please give a solution and advice on which model I can that is low coast.

From the sound of your issue with the fading bar codes it appears that you may just be using the wrong type of label. The Zebra TLP2844 can print a simple direct thermal label without any ink like you are now doing or with a regular paper label and ribbon. In the first case the labels will fade over time especially when exposed to heat/sunlight. The thermal transfer option with ribbon will not fade at all. We carry the full line of Zebra labels and ribbons which we can match up to ensure a long label life for you.
