Which printers are compatible with Chit Chats?
The Chit Chats platform is optimized for printing postage from thermal label printers that use the Zebra Programming Language (ZPL) e.g. Zebra ZP450, Zebra GX420D (sold on Chit Chats Supplies). However, we support most other Zebra models such as Zebra LP 2844-Z, Dymo printers (e.g. DYMO LabelWriter 4XL), the Citizen CL-S521 and standard desktop printers. It is best to print your postage to fit a 4 x 6" label.
