Thermal Transfer Ribbon and Printing FAQ
Q1. Which is better, thermal transfer or thermal direct?
A1. It depends on the application. Thermal direct is normally used for short term labels, such as shipping labels, food labels at the deli, etc. Thermal direct paper is sensitive to UV light and will change colour in the sun or under fluorescent lights. Thermal transfer is normally used for labels that need to last longer, such as retail clothing tags, product ID codes, date and batch coding, etc. Thermal transfer labels will not discolour in UV light.
Q2. Is thermal direct cheaper than thermal transfer?
A2. On balance, yes. With thermal direct there is no ribbon, so that cost is saved, however the ribbon has a special, low friction backcoat that protects the print head. Thermal direct paper is very abrasive compared to thermal ribbon and head life will be considerably reduced without a ribbon to protect it, so the saving gained by not using a ribbon must be offset by the cost of replacement heads. In some cases the head life for thermal direct will be ¼ that of a head protected by a ribbon.
