5.51" x 984' Thermal ribbon compatible with most Zebra printers as well as Datamax, Intermec or Sato thermal transfer printers that support coated side out thermal ribbons, meaning the ink is facing outwards on the roll.
If you are using thermal transfer labels, you will need thermal transfer ribbons to print your image or barcodes. At Altro, we offer premium, black wax thermal ribbons. These Wax ribbons work best for most applications such as shipping, shelf, bin, retail, or warehouse labels. They’re ideal for use where fast print speeds are required (Up to 12 ips). They must be used with paper facestocks in environments with little to no exposure to weak chemicals and / or to some abrasion.
