How do thermal transfer printers work?

Thermal transfer printers use a ribbon that melts onto the label when heated by the printhead. As the ink absorbs, it creates a permanent image on the label.

As a result, the print quality of a label printed thermal transfer is extremely durable and resistant to fading and scuffing. Ribbons are available in three different grades: waxed; waxed/resin and full resin for varying durability.

At BCP Media, we supply a comprehensive range of thermal transfer ribbons in a variety of sizes, colours and compositions to suit your needs. Explore your options today.
