Barcode/ QR Code Printing

Printing labels with thermal transfer is a great option for all kinds of variable data, offering full flexibility regarding quantities and data. They are also a much more effective labelling solution than handwritten labels, helping to increase both efficiency an professionalism.

Thermal transfer printing, also known as thermal transfer overprinting (TTO), is a digital technology used to print high-resolution, variable-content codes on thin, flexible packaging such as films, pouches, and labels.

Thermal Transfer

High resolution thermal transfer print technology

Thermal transfer printing uses a high resolution (300 dpi) thermal printhead and thermal transfer ribbon. The printer heats select elements on the thermal printhead to transfer the colored pigment in the ribbon onto the flexible packaging. This printing process can be used at speeds as fast as 400 packages per minute. In contrast to older analog technologies like hot stamping and roller coding, TTO’s high resolution printhead can also print logos, graphics and bar codes in addition to standard lot and expiry date information.

Do your goods/products have a low turnover rate of more than 2 years? Then we strongly advise using our thermal transfer labels.

Direct Thermal

With direct thermal printing, heat is applied directly from the print head to the label stock, causing the stock to blacken resulting in the image. Although direct thermal is quite cost effective, the labels may not always be able to withstand the shipping process compared to thermal transfer printed labels. Because Direct Thermal printers do not use a ribbon. The print head elements comes into direct contact with the heat sensitive labels. So Direct thermal labels has to be heat-sensitive. However, the printed image can degrade in hot environments.

Be sure to keep this in mind when shipping to warehouses in hot climates, or wherever there’s a possibility for label stock to be exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. For shipping applications, select a direct thermal stock with a protective coating.
