We explain the difference between the Thermal label printer types.
Direct thermal printing is where the inked ribbon is removed from the process so media is more light sensitive, heat sensitive and sensitive to abrasions thus reducing its life expectancy of the printed product. This is mainly used where the low shelf life is not a disadvantage and it is especially important to print at low cost. Typical areas of application are tickets, cash register receipts, luggage tags, event tickets, shipping labels, pic labels, name tags, and visitor passes in hospitality and many different industries.
Thermal transfer printers use a digital thermal printing method that produces durable, long-lasting printed images on a wide variety of media by applying heat & melting a coating of thermal transfer ribbon onto the printed material.
