Label printer ribbons are used for “thermal transfer” barcode label printers. Thermal transfer printing is used where a long life, durable label is needed. Also, when labels are in direct sunlight, thermal transfer printers with the right wax/resin ribbon should be used.
The ribbons come in 2 main widths to suit either 2 inch or 4 inch printers, so make sure you choose the right one.
Please give us a call if you need a hand choosing the right ribbon.
