Used for product ID, record keeping, lab specimens, circuit board manufacture, outdoor and cold storage, thermal transfer labels are ideal for printing long-lasting variable data. These labels typically offer greater durability than direct thermal, sheet style inkjet or laser labels. Utilizing roll-form labels and printing ribbons, this technology needs lower heat to transfer a printed image than other printing methods, which gives you the widest variety of paper and film materials to work with. You also have the most extensive choice of adhesives to fit special labeling applications. A well-matched ribbon and label make a print bond so strong that protective film laminates are not usually needed.
Unlike many suppliers, we offer a thorough cross-section of high-quality ribbons made by some of the most trusted companies in the label industry. We thoroughly test our ribbons to assure consistent, reliable performance and to meet application requirements. See which ribbon prints best with each material, along with common applications.
Commonly used for shipping labels, receipts, name tags, picking and event tickets, direct thermal labels do not require ink, toner or a transfer ribbon. The label has a special heat-activated layer where a black print image is formed on the label as heat from the print head is applied. Eliminating the ribbon makes for easier use and a lower cost per label. Note: Direct thermal labels are primarily used for short term use since they will eventually fade or brown with age and will turn black if exposed to heat or strong sunlight.
