Suggestions for Printing Self-Adhesive Label Sheets?

MarkW78 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
We have a need to print self-adhesive shelf tags and labels.  These are usually in full letter-sized sheets, perforated for easy separation, and made to hang from standard retail shelving.  The labels are typically made of a material that appears to be a plastic or vinyl.

Our printer is a standard HP 1200-series laser printer.

The problem is that with certain styles of these labels, the printer appears to almost melt the sticker to the point that it separates from the backing and wraps itself around the rollers.  This has basically ruined one printer and we need to replace it.  Is there a better printer that we can buy that will print our labels without this hassle?  Any other suggestions would also be very welcome!
