What are Thermal Direct Labels?

Thermal direct labels are labels that are printed using thermal printing technology, also known as direct thermal printing. Thermal printing is a printing process that uses heat to transfer ink or toner to the label material. In thermal direct printing, the heat is applied directly to the label material, which is coated with a special ink that turns black when exposed to heat.

Thermal direct labels are commonly used in applications where the label does not need to be durable or resistant to fading, as the ink is prone to fading over time. They are often used for temporary or short-term labelling applications, such as shipping labels or product tags.

Thermal direct labels are typically produced using thermal printers, which use a print head to apply heat to the label material. They are well-suited for printing large volumes of labels quickly and efficiently, and are often used in applications where fast turnaround and low cost are priorities.
