The Ribbon Factory.co.uk is part of the Etiquette Network of websites offering a wide variety of high quality thermal transfer ribbons for various industries. We can’t stress enough how important it is to choose the right thermal transfer ribbon for your labels for your label printer, which is why we have a thorough cross-section of high quality ribbons made by some of the most trusted companies in the industry. Thermal Transfer Ribbons are primarily available in three different types:
Wax Ribbons – these ribbons are the most commonly used of all transfer ribbons. Ideal for printing onto paper they are compatible with almost all thermal transfer printers and produce good print quality at high transfer speeds.
Wax Resin Ribbons – if your print requires a certain amount of durability, then you may require a wax resin ribbon as wax resin ribbons offer good smudge and scratch resistance on paper but also on some filmic products including polyester and polypropylene.
Resin Ribbons – are designed to meet more durable applications and are suitable for printing onto a wide range of synthetic materials including polypropylene, polyester and high temperature polyimide, whilst also offering the best scratch and smudge resistance.
