Thermal Transfer Labels: Getting Started

What Do You Need To Know?

  1. Durability - long lasting, greater than one year.
  2. Resistant - safe against scratches, chemicals, and environmental factors.
  3. Transfer Ribbons - used in the thermal printer to create the label.

Durability

You can expect great shelf life with these due to the extra strength provided by the label ribbon. Thermal transfer printing is used extensively in cold storage, outdoor, and archival applications because of this reason.

Resistant

Because they can withstand extreme conditions, they’re favourites of the meat and food packaging industry. Pharmacies and laboratories love thermal print.

Transfer Ribbons

These label ribbons produce the “ink” your printer creates. The ribbon is made out of wax and when it gets hot, the design gets imprinted to the printing label.

How Do Thermal Transfer Printers Work?

When choosing a thermal transfer roll label and ribbon set up, it’s important to know a little bit about the process.

They use the shift of heat and it melts a wax ribbon. The label is coated with a heat-sensitive layer that changes colour when exposed to the transfer ribbons interposed between the print head. The ribbon melts on the printing label to form the image. This process creates high quality - greater durability and clarity.

When Should You Use Thermal Transfer Labels?

When you need long lasting and strong, thermal transfer printers will give you the lowest priced option for doing bulk labels. It is common to use label applicators for larger quantities of roll and fanfold applications. And of course, shipping labels. Thermal transfer printing gives you flexibility.
