Print Labels On Demand When You Need Them

Direct Thermal Labels: Getting Started

What Do You Need To Know?

  1. Best for low contact use - no extreme conditions.
  2. Best for short term use - less than one year.
  3. Best for scanning and tracking - very readable.
  4. Most common label size is 4” x 6” - used everywhere.
  5. Most common core sizes are 1” and 3” - all printers.

When Should You Use Direct Thermal Labels?

Use direct thermal when you need on demand barcode labels - shipping, inventory, and warehousing. Print one at a time - or hundreds at a time.

The big difference with roll labels is they use dedicated printers.

Direct Thermal printers by companies like Zebra, Datamax, and Sato are machines that don’t use ink, toners, or ribbons to make labels.

Because thermal labels are heat-sensitive material, they change colour when they near the print head. No ink or ribbon makes the job easy and quick.
