Our presses produce high quality labels compatible with industry leading printers including both Thermal Transfer and Direct Thermal.
If you are unsure of the differences between thermal transfer printing and direct thermal here is a quick overview:
Thermal transfer labels use a ribbon to produce an image, text and even barcodes and come in a variety of different colours, so you don’t have to use just black. There are three main types of ribbons which are wax, wax resin and resin. A thermal transfer ribbon can be used on different types of materials such as paper, film and foil.
Direct thermal labels are usually used for shipping labels, receipts and in the food industry. Direct thermal printers require the use of heat activated thermal paper and film and do not require the need of a thermal transfer ribbon. The life span of a direct thermal label is usually less than 1 year.
