What are Direct Thermal Labels?

Direct Thermal Labels are commonly used as shipping labels, box end labels and picking/packing labels.

The construction of Direct Thermal material has a special heat-activated layer where a black print image is formed on the label as heat is applied direct from the print head.

This eliminates the need for a thermal transfer ribbon which makes for easier use, resulting in a lower cost per label. Direct thermal labels are generally used for short shelf life products and are not recommended for demanding conditions.

What are Thermal Transfer Labels?

Thermal Transfer covers a wide variety of materials everything from paper to synthetic alongside longer life, greater quality and durability than direct thermal labels.

Generally used for product identification, laboratory specimens, outdoor and even cold storage

The use of Thermal Transfer Labels and Printer Ribbons uses less heat to transfer a printed image than Direct Thermal, giving you the ability to select a vast array of materials to work with.
