Thermal Transfer Labels

Valued for its image extreme durability, print speed, and ability to print on a wide variety of substrate material, Thermal Transfer technology has been and continues to be a printing industry standard. Thermal transfer printers excel at creating dense print output with crisp edges that hold up well to abrasion; attributes required in most barcoding applications.

Being so versatile, there are many types of Thermal transfer ribbon formulations along with multitudes of different substrates that can be printed on. It is very important that you have the correct ribbon and material combination to ensure proper transfer and durability. For example, wax-based TTR will scratch off very easily when printed on a synthetic substrate. Resin-based TTR would be the perfect match for synthetic material ensuring long-lasting durability. With 25 years of experience in manufacturing and testing Thermal transfer ribbons and materials, we at GetLabels can guide you through the decision-making process so that you have the proper combination suitable to your application.
