Most modern dedicated label printers speak ethernet or multi-drop 
RS-485. 

Depends on the budget. Might be simple enough to attach a small 
dedicated X-session PC to the monitor, might not. The I-frame idea seems 
about best, run it all off of a PC or two. Depends on your environment; 
do the warehouse workers destroy everything they come in contact with? 
I've known a few who were gifted with a forklift, but accidents do 
happen.
