What is a label printer?

A label printer is a versatile tool that produces high-quality labels for countless applications across sectors like transport, construction, and manufacturing. It offers the flexibility to produce labels at any time, helps lower printing costs, saves time, and ensures professionals can maintain quality control.

What does a thermal transfer printer do?

A thermal transfer printer uses heat to transfer images onto a surface, creating durable labels for a wide range of applications. This method is ideal for producing long-lasting, high-quality labels that can withstand environmental challenges, ensuring clarity and quality control in professional settings.

What is the difference between direct thermal and thermal transfer printers?

Direct thermal printers use heat-sensitive paper to produce images directly, suitable for short-term applications. Thermal transfer printers, on the other hand, heat a ribbon to transfer images onto various materials, creating durable, long-lasting labels ideal for a wider range of uses and environments.

Do thermal transfer printers need ink?

Thermal transfer printers do not require traditional ink. Instead, they use a thermal ribbon that, when heated by the printer's print head, transfers the image or text onto the material. This process creates high-quality, durable labels suitable for various applications, offering precise control and quality.

Can you reuse a thermal transfer ribbon?

Thermal transfer ribbons are designed for a single-use process. Once the ribbon has passed through the printer and the heat has transferred the image onto the material, it cannot be reused for printing. This ensures each print maintains high quality and durability.

What is the best label printer?

When it comes to choosing the best label printer it can be quite a difficult task – whether it’s a handheld label printer or a desktop label printer, every product is designed to solve different labelling challenges. Therefore, the best one for you will depend on your application. However, it is useful to consider these questions before buying a label printer:

  • What size do I need my label printer to be?

    It is important to consider whether the printer will be used in an office or in a warehouse, because each location have different requirements. Warehouses can become dusty, and often individuals need labels in areas where space is limited. Therefore, Handheld Label Printers can be a useful tool as they are designed to withstand drops, damages and is the ideal solution for on-field applications. Desktop Label Printers may be more appropriate to use in an office as their size can restrict the ability to print-on-the go.

  • What is my required label life?
  • Are you looking for a label printer that can withstand harsh environmental conditions? Direct thermal printers are sensitive to heat and chemical exposure, so they won't stand up to these conditions. Thermal Transfer Printers transfer information using heat, making them ideal for printing labels in any environment and resisting smudging and smearing.
