What benefits are there to using thermal transfer printing?
Thermal transfer labels consistently result in labels with a long lifespan, especially when compared to that of direct thermal labels. This means that thermal transfer printing is the right choice if the product being labeled may spend extended periods of time in the supply chain, or could be exposed to extreme conditions such as direct sunlight or chemicals. The resilient nature of this method makes it perfect for products where label integrity is critical – such as pharmaceuticals and hazardous materials.
The print quality presented by thermal transfer printing is crisp, accurate, and durable, even at high-speeds – perfect for high-volume printing of labels and barcodes. If insignia's range of stocked thermal transfer do not meet the needs of your organization, we can custom produce the perfect label for you – of differing shapes, sizes, colours, materials, and adhesives.
How does thermal transfer printing work?
Thermal transfer printing utilizes a carbon-based ribbon which is chemically transferred onto a label once heat is applied. insignia stocks a wide-range of these transfer ribbons in an assortment of colours, formulas, and sizes that will match your business' needs. The ink from these ribbons can be transferred to a wide range of substrates including paper, film, and even foil.
