Hello! I’ve been reselling clothing on eBay and Poshmark for a few years now and I wanted to share what’s worked for me. So, what’s the best printer for selling on Poshmark and eBay? I recommend buying a DYMO label writer 4XL if you can, but if you don’t have the funds or you’d rather buy a multipurpose printer, then I’d recommend a laser printer. Just don’t get an inkjet! Here’s a few more details:
Get a DYMO 4XL if you can, but you don’t have to.
The reason so many resellers have a DYMO 4XL label printer is because it’s the most convenient way to print labels and ship your eBay and Poshmark orders. The reason why many people are hesitant is because the DYMO only performs the function of printing shipping labels. In short, you won’t be able to print out a normal document with this printer – it isn’t multipurpose. If you’re a beginner reseller, the DYMO may not be worth the investment immediately. If you sell full-time, it’s definitely worth picking up.
If you aren’t getting a DYMO, get a laser printer instead of an inkjet printer.
This will save you money on ink. Massively. You’ll be buying a larger cartridge, but it will last you forever. Laser printers use significantly less ink than inkjet printers. For printing shipping labels, a laser printer is a better choice than an inkjet.
- Laser printers are less wasteful
- Inkjet printers are better for documents with more detail or photos
- Laser printers print text sharply and more quickly than inkjets
- Startup costs will be slightly more with a laser printer but the ink cost savings will quickly add up
- Laser printers require less maintenance than inkjets. I haven’t had to clean mine once yet and my silly Canon Pixma (love it and hate it) needs cleaning every month or so
I used the Brother HL-L2300D for two years before upgrading to the DYMO 4XL. I still use this printer for printing jobs unrelated to reselling. I’ve had several laser and inkjet printers throughout college and young adult life and this one has lasted the longest. It’s also pretty affordable at well under $100.
I couldn’t justify buying a single-purpose printer in the beginning, especially because the business I was working on required me to print documents regularly. I needed a “normal” printer. If you’re in the same situation, that’s ok! You’ll still be able to use your laser printer after upgrading to the DYMO. No need to go all out at first if you don’t feel like you need to! The best printer for Poshmark and eBay sellers is whichever of these printers best fits your current situation!
