The LabelWriter 450 series printers (LabelWriter 450, 450 Turbo, 450 Twin Turbo, and 450 Duo) are high-performance, low-cost printers used for printing mailing labels, postage, file folder labels, bar code labels, and more.

All 450 series printer models connect to a host computer through a standard full-speed USB 2.0-compatible interface. There are no built-in fonts.
