Benefits of direct thermal labels
Fast and reliable – The heat transfer process is much faster than laser or inkjet technology. The relatively simple process also has fewer moving parts so thermal printers are much more reliable and less prone to printer jams.
Durable – The thermal transfer process is dry so there is no risk of the print being smudged after printing. This makes them ideal for receipts or shipping labels.
Cost-effective – No ink or toner needs to be purchased so thermal labels are a much more cost-effective option than either inkjet or laser printers.
When not to use thermal labels
Despite being durable, direct thermal printers are not suitable for all types of environment. The label coating is sensitive to light and heat so they are not suitable for printing on products which are exposed to these elements. This includes products kept outside or in the chiller cabinets. The technology is best reserved for short shelf life items, receipt rolls or shipping labels.
