DIRECT THERMAL PRINTERS

Direct thermal printers require the use of heat activated thermal papers and films, but require no transfer ribbon. The print color is primarily limited to black. Labels will darken over time if the surface gets scratched or is subjected to heat and sunlight. This makes direct thermal printing popular in the food industry where label shelf life is usually under a year. The two primary benefits of direct thermal printers are a generally lower cost and easier media changeovers since ribbon is not required.
