Benefits of Thermal Ribbon Printing
A transfer printer prints on to a paper material by melting a coating of ink from the ribbon so that it stays stuck to the paper. These labels can survive for decades provided that they are properly cared for. Prints made using thermal transfer ribbons generally have the following characteristics:
- Smudge Resistance
- High tolerance for a wide range of ambient temperatures
- Ideal for indoor and outdoor applications
It is for this reason that thermal transfer is the preferred method for printing barcodes. One of the main applications for this type of printer is to produce barcode labels for product identification. You can order barcode labels here.
To end up with the perfect print, it is necessary to make sure that the correct ribbon is matched to the print medium. In most cases, for standard print requirements wax ribbons are sufficient, but for those projects requiring more resistance towards chemicals and potential data loss, wax-resin thermal ribbons are highly suggested.
