Plain Labelling

What can we do for you?

Plain Labels

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.
