Versatile Direct Thermal Label Printer


Part of Star’s popular mCollection, the mC-Label3 label printer combines high quality, versatile thermal label printing with superior connectivity for PC, Network, Tablets and Cloud based systems.

The mC-Label3 prints on a wide range of liner-free media including low adhesive “re-stick” labels as well as high adhesive permanent and semi-permanent labels. Also designed for traditional liner pre-sized labels as well as continuous label rolls and receipt paper.

Printing high quality text, graphics and barcodes on media from 25mm to 80mm wide, the mC-Label3 can handle it all! With no ink or ribbons to change and with the very latest technology, the mC-Label3 is designed to offer unparalleled adaptability and convenience.

The mC-Label3 is packed with useful features for simple operation. Adjustable paper width detectors ensure media is loaded correctly. Clear LEDs show printer and connectivity status and useful features enhance the user experience such as Star’s Paper taken sensor, which queues labels, preventing multiple labels printing before the previous label is taken.

As with all of Star’s mCollection, additional Star technologies are included. The new SteadyLAN+ technology offers a lightning-fast, stable internet connection to Android and Windows mobile devices connected to networked Star printers. In addition, new TetherLAN technology allows your 4G & 5G connected device to share its network connection with the mC-Label, essentially creating a CloudPRNT environment anywhere, anytime.

Ultra Connected

The mC-Label3 includes multiple connectivity options for Android and Windows devices: USB-C, Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth (MCL32CBI). The MCL32CBI is also Apple MFi-certified for iOS Bluetooth connectivity. Wireless LAN connectivity is also available with Star’s optional MCW10 WLAN adapter. Cloud and web based printing is simple using Star’s included CloudPRNT technology.

One-Touch Label

With Star Micronics Cloud Services, the mC-Label offers the flexibility to build, store, and print multiple static label templates and print them at the touch of a button. Simply use Star’s free label design software to design labels and print the stored label by pressing the multi-funtion button on the front with no device connection needed.

Hub functionality

Additional USB-A ports enable USB devices to be simply connected and controlled via the printer. Connect a USB barcode scanner, scales or customer display.
