LABELS, What is the best type for you? | DIRECT THERMAL OR THERMAL TRANSFER?

25th Feb 2014

With so many different brands and models, finding the correct label that will fit and work with your printer in the way you want it can be such a hassle. We have found that finding the correct label that has the correct material, standards, size, and technology can be quite a strenuous process for our customers. 

Usually the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for labels is what kind of technology is your printer - Direct Thermal Printer or Thermal Transfer Printer? Direct Thermal means it does not require a ribbon and can print directly from your printer onto the label. Thermal Transfer requires a Zebra ribbon so the text/image can be inputted on the label/receipt for longer print life. 

Next, you need to know what your printer's core size, max OD, minimum label width, and maximum label width. You can make it through this process by knowing what model you have and limit it that way... All that can be a tiresome process. That's why we made it a goal to have a Search that can help you find the correct receipt paper or Zebra Labels. Our search can narrow result to what works for you with just a few clicks. 

Select your Zebra Printer, your Media Type (Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer),  and your size. Then you have a few options varying in intensity, durability, color, etc that you can choose between. Our goal is to make your shopping process as easy as possible.TRY OUT OUR SEARCH HERE!
