What are Thermal Labels?
Thermal labels are labels made of thermal paper used for applications where labels are required to be printed individually on a regular basis with generally different information on each.
Many industries require these labels to print information such as addresses, barcodes, or product prices and descriptions. They can also be used ad dispatch labels, shipping labels, warehousing labels, date labels, and barcoding labels.
What is Thermal Printing?
Thermal printing is the process of printing with a thermal printer that uses heat in order to produce the image on paper instead of toner or ink.
The benefits of this type of printing can be seen across various industries, including airline, entertainment, banking, grocery, retail, and healthcare industries. It produces quality and durable prints; it is rather fast and has numerous technological advances, which make it a very popular option.
Types of Thermal Labels
Depending on the application of the label, there are two types of thermal labels that can be used - Direct Thermal and Thermal Transfer.
The first ones, the direct thermal labels, are printed with a thermal printer without the use of a thermal ribbon. Even though they are usually recommended for short-term use, our direct thermal labels at L.G. Business Systems are durable and with premium quality.
The second ones, thermal transfer labels, are printed with a thermal printer but with the use of thermal ribbon. Because the thermal ribbon is included in the creation of prints, it is the more expensive option of the two types. However, they produce labels with more extended durability.
