Thermal transfer

11.12.08

Thermal transfer is a printing technology method in which printers use regular paper and a heat sensitive ribbon. The ribbon deposits a coating of dark material on the paper when exposed to intense heat. Thermal transfer printers produce a more durable label that won’t fade as quickly as direct thermal labels and are often used when a label needs to endure longer than a year.
