Selecting the correct thermal-transfer ribbon can be the most important step in your printing process.


Thermal transfer printers work by applying heat to either wax, wax-resin, or resin thermal transfer ribbons to produce images on a wide variety of materials. Each type of ribbon provides a different level of durability. It’s important to choose the correct type of thermal transfer ribbon for your thermal printing applications.

 Use the following guidelines to help you select the right ribbon to ensure that your labels are readable, scannable and durable. Please contact Todaytec and we will be glad to help you select the best ribbon for your printing applications and send you free samples.
