Thermal CD printers, as distinguished from inkjet CD printers, use a heat transfer process to seal the ink into the disc material. This process ensures permanence as well as a waterproof quality to the impression. It also guarantees faster drying times. Generally, thermal printers are designed to print at a fast pace for high-volume production. All of these features contribute to their much higher price tag.

However, this price tag can be tackled with business leasing plans. For example, some thermal printer models can be leased for less than $100 a month. Naturally, these machines should also come with a one- or two-year warranty and free technical support. Oftentimes, this support is offered for the lifetime of the printer, which makes it an even more attractive purchase.

Special Features of Thermal CD Printers

The bottom line is that no matter how advanced the features on a thermal printer, it should still be user friendly. Printers should easily connect with a PC via a single cable. Also, it is standard for thermal CD printers to come with some sort of printing design software. This software should be able to handle the most commonly used fonts, such as Tru-Type.

If you're a high-volume printer, make sure that the printer you purchase can fit a large amount of discs in its input bin. For example, some models can hold between 300 and 400 discs waiting to print. This kind of capacity can help you avoid hassles, delays, and wasted resources and manpower.
