Direct Thermal Labels

Sometimes a simple, temporary label may be all you need to get the job done. That’s where our direct thermal labels can provide you with the solution you need.

Direct thermal labels are printed using a chemically treated material that blackens when the thermal print-head applies heat to its surface. Because the printer uses heat to create the image, direct thermal printers don’t require ink, toner, or ribbons. The low maintenance and cost of operating these printers mean direct thermal labels are less expensive to print and cost less for our customers.

Direct thermal labels are only printed in black and white. They are also more sensitive to light, heat and abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material, but there are many jobs to which these types of labels can be applied.

Great uses for direct thermal labels may include:

  • Barcodes
  • Receipts
  • Shipping labels
  • Nametags
