Thermal transfer printing technology uses heat to transfer an image (text, images and barcodes) using an ink ribbon onto a label. Heat from the print head melts the ink on the ribbon which is deposited onto the label surface to create the image.


What  are the benefits of Thermal Transfer Labels:

Ability to use materials that are weather / chemical resistant.

The drying time of the ink is very fast enabling high speed printing.

The price range makes high quality label printing affordable to smaller businesses.

Available in a rugged metal construction for warehouse environments.

Larger label rolls making for fewer label changes.

Most thermal transfer printers also have the ability to do direct thermal printing.

Types of Thermal Transfer Labels:

Semi Gloss Labels

Also known as mid-gloss, this is possibly the most common thermal transfer material, being low cost, providing good print quality and looking good from a presentation point of view.


Ideal for use in environments where print needs to be longer lasting and may be exposed to direct sunlight. Typical applications include product identification, work in progress, shipping labels and pharmaceutical.

Matt White Labels

The lowest cost label material, most popular types are uncoated papers (also known as litho or vellum) suitable for high volume printing. More expensive options, which provide a better print quality are smoother versions (calendared) and coated matt papers. The main disadvantage of matt uncoated papers is that they can mark easily.


Ideal for labelling of packaging boxes and pallets, product identification, picking and receiving.
