Thermal transfer labels are used to create barcodes used in stock inventory, shipping labels, product identification and serialization, outdoor applications, outdoor applications, and much more. These labels require a thermal ribbon to be able to print and ultimately create printing that is very crisp and durable. These thermal transfer labels come in a wide variety of colors and materials, which can range anywhere from polyester to paper, and include colors other than black. They also last on the shelf for over a year, and don’t fail to last under harsh conditions. We have hundreds of cutting dies to make sure that we have one that will satisfy all of your needs. If by chance we don’t have the shape you want exactly, we can make custom order dies.
At National Custom Printing, we offer a wide range of thermal transfer ribbons to make thermal transfer labels that will work with virtually every thermal transfer printer found on the market today. These also work great for any variety of printing projects that include bar code labels, coated and uncoated labels, and tags. The crisp print on the labels is both rub and fading resistant. Finishing options include wax, a hybrid of wax and resin, and super durable resin ribbons. If you are unsure of what ribbon type your project requires, give us a call and we will be able to help you decide based on the requirements of your project, and your printer, application, and substrate needs.
Thermal Transfer Printers work to create these labels by using heat to transfer the wax, resin enhanced wax, or even just resin, which always results in a very crisp and durable print.
