What you need to consider

Before you order your handheld printer from us we recommend that you first identify the primary purpose of your handheld inkjet printer. Different models cater to different applications, from artistic endeavours to industrial labelling. Knowing what you will be using it for will guide you towards the best hand inkjet printer for you.

They are ideal for DIY projects and crafting, on-the-go labelling for small businesses, and quick and portable event printing. They don’t work so well for high-volume printing or precision photo printing.

You also need to consider the type of ink cartridge your handheld printer uses. Various cartridges serve different purposes.

Ink Cartridge Types

Water-Based Inks: Suitable for porous surfaces like paper and cardboard.

Solvent-Based Fast Dry Inks: Perfect for printing on non-porous surfaces like plastic and metal, as well as porous surfaces.

The inks also come in a variety of colours including Yellow, White, Green, Magenta, Black, and Cyan.

Handheld inkjet printers are available in several different designs, each with its own features. You get the Bentsai B10 Mini that fits in the palm of your hand, and then the Bentsai B45 that looks almost like a cordless drill. Some can print faster and with more accuracy than others like the Bentsai B2 which has a printing accuracy of up to 600 dpi at 80m/min.

These handheld printers have:

  • Efficient Lithium Batteries
  • Touch Screens
  • Multiple Printing Choices
  • Small and Lightweight
  • Precision Printing

Another factor to consider is the handheld inkjet printer price. While the features and capabilities are crucial, staying within your budget is a practical consideration. Handheld inkjet printers come at varying price points, and understanding the balance between cost and functionality is key.

If you are only going to use it occasionally or at home then go for the budget-friendly option of a basic model with essential features like the Bentsai B10 Mini.

If you are going to use it daily, but don’t need all the bells and whistles then choose a mid-range model, like the Bentsai B2 or B35, that has enhanced features and versatility but with a slightly higher price tag.

If the handheld printer is crucial to your business and it will make a significant difference in your productivity, then definitely invest in a premium model like the Bentsai B85 with its advanced functionality.


So, when choosing a handheld inkjet printer for printing on bottles, boxes, crates, and even eggs, you should be looking at why you need one, what type of ink cartridge you will need, what features are most important to you, and how well this will fit into your budget.
