Thermal transfer labels are the perfect solution for companies printing large volumes of shipping and barcoding labels. These labels are more durable than the direct thermal alternative as they require a ribbon to print. Consequently, they are less likely to scratch, scuff, or fade. If you need the print on your labels to last more than 6 months, thermal transfer labels are the perfect solution.
Thermal transfer printing is highly cost-effective. The materials are cheap, and the printer itself is a fairly simple machine. Thermal transfer printing produces images with extremely tight tolerances. That results in instant barcode reads and very few errors.
