Thermal transfer labels offer greater durability than inkjet or laser printed labels. They use a ribbon to print and will therefore not fade when exposed to heat or sunlight the way direct thermal labels can.
Thermal transfer paper labels are used for short to medium term labelling and come in several different styles according to usage needs, including:
- Velum Extra
- Fast Transfer Standard
- Fast Transfer Ultra
- Semi-gloss (used for item pricing and labelling but not recommended for barcoding purposes as some scanner will have difficulty scanning against a glossy material)
