Q:What is the difference between direct thermal printing and thermal transfer?
A:The basic difference between Direct Thermal and Thermal Transfers labels is the Direct Thermal labels DO NOT require a ribbon. Direct Thermal labels normally have a shorter label life than Thermal Transfer labels. Direct Thermal labels are used primarily in applications such as shipping labels. Direct thermal labels can cost 10-30% more per label, however there is no ribbon cost and setup time is reduced since the operator is just changing the labels. Direct thermal labels are not recommended for applications in which there is prolonged exposure to UV, heat, or direct sunlight. Since Direct Thermal Labels are not as widely used as Thermal Transfer labels, there are fewer selections of 'off the shelf' stock sizes.
Q:How can your prices be so much lower than my current supplier?
A:Our pricing structure is a direct reflection of our strategic goal to help companies save money on the products they are purchasing each year for barcoding and product labeling and identification. We keep our pricing low by utilizing an efficient supply chain management system and by using suppliers that have the same customer oriented goals we have.
Q:Are you selling poor quality labels for these prices?
A:The quality of the labels we sell and distribute are of the highest quality available in the Automatic Identification and Data Collection Industry. If you have any concerns about the quality of our products, request a FREE sample of our labels.
