Labels - Direct Thermal (No Ribbon Required)

Embrace the simplicity and superior quality of our Direct Thermal Labels, a versatile solution for various applications including barcode labels and 4x6 direct thermal shipping labels. To fully appreciate the benefits of Direct Thermal Labels, it's important to understand their distinct attributes and how they differentiate from Thermal Transfer Labels.

Direct Thermal Labels streamline the printing process by removing the need for ink, toner, or a thermal ribbon. They employ a heat-sensitive material that turns black under the thermal printhead, producing crisp, clear, and durable prints. This cost-effective solution is ideal for direct thermal barcode labels, ensuring precision and easy readability with each print.

Direct Thermal Labels are available in various roll sizes designed for compatibility with a range of direct thermal barcode printers:

  • Industrial Direct Thermal Labels: These large label rolls, with a 3-inch core and maximum 8-inch roll OD, are ideally suited for industrial direct thermal barcode printers.
