THERMAL TRANSFER RIBBONS FOR EVERY APPLICATION

The type of ribbon used will depend on the label material and application:

  • WAX is the most cost-effective but can rub-off if used on gloss labels or when exposed to heat or friction.
  • WAX-RESIN is the most used and will adhere to a wide range of label materials.
  • RESIN is extremely durable and used for specialist applications.
  • TEXTILE RESIN specifically formulated for clothing and fabric printing.

Thermal ribbon also comes in either Coated-side-in (CSI) or Coated-side-out (CSO) depending on the printer being used.

WHAT PRINTER RIBBON DO YOU NEED FOR YOUR LABELS?

Choosing the right Ribbon is important to ensure a good quality print.

The 2 key considerations are:

  1. The label material (substrate) being printed on, and
  2. The application or conditions the print will be exposed to (UV, heat/cold, moisture, rubbing/abrasion, chemicals etc).

Different printer models may need specific ribbon cores, ribbon trailer and/or maximum ribbon lengths.

If you are unsure which ribbon you need, simply get in touch with your printer model and we can help you.
