Direct thermal labels is a cost-effective type of label made with the direct thermal printing process. It normally works with a direct thermal printer. In the printing process, direct thermal printing uses chemically treated, heat-sensitive media (for example coated, thermo-chromatic paper or thermal paper) that blackens when it passes under the thermal printhead, while thermal transfer printing uses a heated ribbon to produce durable, long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials.
Direct thermal labels is popular because of their wide application. Whether you’re labeling an avocado or a pallet, you can find direct thermal labels that are designed and formulated to suit your needs. The facestock, size, shape, die cut, and adhesive choices can be combined in many ways. Direct thermal labels are ideal for short-term use—up to months or even one year depending on the individual direct thermal label you choose—or for items that are kept indoors, away from direct sunlight, such as in retail environments and for visitor passes. Because the direct thermal printing process is not resistant to high amount of UV light, heat, abrasion, or moisture, it can be prone to fading, smudging, scratching, or even turning completely black. Take that into consideration when choosing your label printing method.

Direct Thermal labels have a wide range of use
Food Industry: Direct Thermal printing is popular in the food industry, since most items are stored away from heat and sunlight, and the label shelf life is less than 1 year. Also, the lack of a thermal ribbon being used allows for increased up-time and less hassle for the individuals printing the labels.
Shipping Parcels: You see Direct Thermal labels used on packages that you receive from UPS, FedEx and even on packages shipped through the US mail.
Medical Industry / Healthcare: Regulatory requirements for privacy of information are another area impacting the use of direct thermal media. In healthcare, patient privacy can be at risk if personal information is available on used thermal transfer ribbon.
Office: Many people use direct thermal labels around their office. They are great for use in filing cabinets, file and folder identification. Direct Thermal tapes are even used for the DYMO label printers that many people use.
Warehouse: Direct Thermal labels are an excellent choice for Inventory Tracking Labels. Most inventory is rotated well within a years time, so direct thermal is your perfect inventory label solution. Having a simple Zebra desktop printer plugged into your computer, you can quickly print bar coded labels to use on your products.
