Direct Thermal Labels: Getting Started

When Should You Use Them?

  1. Low Contact - no extreme conditions.
  2. Short Term - less than one year.
  3. Scanning and Tracking - great clarity.

Low Contact

Use these when scratch, chemical, and environmentally resistant labels are not necessary. Indoor applications are best.

Short Term

Best for labels that will be used for under one year, meaning that you shouldn’t consider them for archival purposes.

Scanning and Tracking

These applications include mailing, inventory, warehouse, and shipping labels.

What Common Sizes Should I Know?

A. Most common label sizes - 4” x 6” and 1.5 x 2.5

B. Most common core sizes - 1” and 3”

What’s the difference between direct thermal labels and other labels?

Direct thermal label printers by Rollo, Zebra, Datamax, and Sato don’t use ink, toners, or ribbons to make labels. It is fast and easy.

How do direct thermal printers work?

Because thermal labels are heat-sensitive material, a chemical reaction makes them change colour when they near the print head. No ink or thermal transfer ribbon makes the job easy and quick. These highly sensitive thermal materials get the job done every time.

Zebra Labels

RDT2515PA-WS

Great direct thermal labels for our zebra printer and much better of a price than going direct. The quality is exactly the same, with in our opinion, an even cooler brand, Altro Labels!!!
