Receipt Printers

While we do offer Receipts to be emailed to your customers, it's also a good idea to have a physical Receipt as well. This will make returns much easier since it gives you the ability to scan the receipt and look up the order.

We support and recommend:

Note: Tablets with ARM Processors are not compatible with Star Printers

Star TSP143III Thermal Receipt Printer: USB, Bluetooth & Wireless

Star TSP654II Thermal Receipt Printer: Bluetooth for Android & iOS, Wifi & Ethernet

Note: We recommend getting the network version or the USB version. If you go the network route, you could get away with just buying one printer and have each register print to it. If you go USB, you will need a printer for each register.

Barcode Scanners

Cut down on user error at the register by scanning barcodes instead of manually entering in Sku's or Product Names. This is also handy when accepting transfers and inventory management.

Label Printers

We support and recommend:

Zebra ZD 410, 2” wide

  • This is our most highly recommended printer, it's got some great new features and fits well with most of our customer's needs.

  • It is Direct Thermal only and is available in either 203 or 300 DPI

  • It prints 6 IPS on 203, 4 IPS on 300 DPI

  • The 300 DPI model offers an ethernet connection option

  • Available from Zebra or 3rd party sellers online

  • Read more about this printer here

  • Get drivers and support from Zebra

Key factors to consider when choosing a printer model:

  • Standard printers come in 2 resolution options: 203 or 300 DPI (Dots Per Inch). We recommend 300 DPI for better quality and scanning.

  • printers come standard with a USB connection. If you want to print on the shop floor then we recommend the ethernet version, which costs a little more but is much more flexible - please check the compatibility with your device before purchasing!


A MacBook running the latest macOS or Windows 10 device will easily do the trick! If you want something more portable, you can also look into a Windows-based or Apple tablet.

The main thing you want to look for is a register that has a Printer Driven Interface so that it opens when a receipt is printed.

Note: Since we highly recommend going with the Star Receipt Printer, it's best to stay also use a Star register so you know they will function together properly.


Before beginning your comparison, it is important to know that there are three main requirements every dispensary scale must meet.

The scales must be certified by the National Conference of Weights and Measures or NTEP. A certification from NTEP often takes months for approval as it is tested for accuracy and reliability.

Secondly, the scale must be classified as a "Class II Balance," meaning it is legal for trade and is able to be used to sell products by weight.

Lastly, the scale must be able to weigh in increments of 0.01 grams (1/100th gram) as often times the product will weigh less than one ounce.

Depending on your state regulations, you may need to contact them in order to have your scale certified as accurate.  Please check with your State Compliance Agency to ensure compliance before opening your location. We recommend:
