Hi Alon,
Try PNG (without transparency). That keeps image quality and dimension(or dpi) with relatively compact file size.
Another option is windows bitmap (BMP).

One more - if you use Seagull driver to print label printer, in Print dialog > Document properties > Graphics tab, change dithering method.

None: Image printed in crisp black and white without intermediate color. Good for simple logo etc. not suitable for photograph.
Halftone / Ordered / Algebraic: Use specific pattern for interim color. see dialog's sample for difference.
Error diffusion: Using intensity of random dots to show intermediate color. better for photograph.
