Direct Thermal Labels
Direct Thermal labels are most commonly used for short life or single use barcodes and shipping labels. A Direct Thermal Label is often printed and used with a life span of just a few days or weeks and typically will not be as durable or smudge resistant as a Thermal Transfer label printed with a Ribbon. A large portion of the shipping labels used today for UPS, FedEx, and USPS are Direct Thermal labels.
Direct Thermal labels require no ink or ribbon to print. Heat in the thermal transfer head is used to create a chemical reaction that darkens the labels Direct Thermal coating.
