Thermal transfer labels are commonly used in business applications, such as bar coding. Thermal labels last much longer than traditional labels and they look very professional as well. These labels are resistant to liquids, chemicals, smudging, scratching, and many other factors that may disable the quality of labels over time. They look professional and are easy to work with as well.

Qualities of Thermal Transfer Labels

There are a few different options of materials in thermal transfer labels. The two main types of materials are paper and synthetic labels. Paper labels are smooth in texture and provide high contrast images, and permanent print. Synthetic labels have a protective silicone top coat, which makes adhesive removal easier. They are also resistant to cleaning agents, oils, and other harsh liquids.

When printing thermal transfer labels, a thermal printer must be used. If you have a thermal printer, you can purchase a roll of thermal labels and create them yourself with your computer. Yet, to save time and energy, you may want to have your labels printed by a printing company. You can visit one of these companies yourself, or order your labels online.

Thermal labels are desirable because they a re long-lasting, they print faster, improve the efficiency of labeling, and have high scan rates for bar coding. You can find most rolls of thermal labels wrapped around a 3" core. The roll itself is usually about 8" in size. There are also a variety of adhesive options to choose from, depending on your preferences and what you will be using the labels for.
