Buying Guide

Direct Thermal Barcode Label Printers

Direct thermal barcode printers require the use of heat activated thermal papers and films, but require no transfer ribbon. The print color is limited to black, unless special, preprinted direct thermal paper is used. The printing is not as crisp as that of thermal transfer ribbon printing, and over time the labels will darken. The main benefit is an overall lower cost, since ribbon is not required.

Thermal Transfer Barcode Label Printers

Thermal transfer barcode label printers require the use of a carbon ribbon which gets transferred onto the substrate via heat. The ribbons can be different colors, so you are not limited to printing only in black. The printing is very crisp and durable so this method is excellent for high density bar-codes and labels that require longevity. The other benefit is that thermal transfer printers can print on paper, film, and even foil substrates.

Thermal Receipt Printers

Thermal receipt printers provide you with near silent, remarkably fast printing. These printers use specially treated heat-sensitive paper and do not use a ribbon, cutting down on the supplies you need to print. Thermal receipt printers are ideal for retail and restaurant environments.

Label Printer Labels

Choose from a wide selection of label sizes and options for your direct transfer and thermal transfer label printers.

Label Printer Ribbons

Thermal Ribbons come in three main types: Wax, Resin, or Wax-Resin. These different types are made to print onto different label materials. Choose from our wide selection of ribbons compatible with your specific label printer.
