What Is The Difference Between Thermal Labels And Direct Thermal Labels?2018-06-11T16:53:45+00:00

The main difference between the two is direct thermal printing does not use a ribbon. Direct thermal printing does require the use of special heat-sensitive substrate material. The printer head activates the heat-sensitive coating on this material which forms a black image. Thermal transfer printing uses a ribbon where ink is transferred under heat and pressure.

Do I Need A Ribbon In My Printer?2018-06-11T16:49:16+00:00

Ribbons are used only with thermal transfer labels, not with direct thermal labels.

Ribbon Width2018-06-11T16:48:39+00:00

The ribbon width should extend past the edge of the label material to prevent damage to the printhead from abrasion by the label material. For example, a 2.5 wide label would require a 3-inch wide ribbon. Many ribbons are larger than their specified width (4-inch ribbons, for example, are typically 4.33 inches wide).

Ink Configuration (IN or OUT)2018-06-11T17:36:04+00:00

When you purchase a ribbon, specify the brand of the printer to assure the ribbons are wound in the correct configuration. You can get either ink side wound “in” (also called “coated side in” – CSI) or ink side wound “out” (also called “coated side out” – CSO).
