What is thermal transfer printing?

Thermal transfer printing is a process that requires a printer with a thermal print head and an ink ribbon, which when exposed to heat, applies a print on the label or flexible film. 

The print information is fed to the thermal print head and is heated as necessary to apply the print that is required. The ink from the tape transfers to the material and you can see how it does so quickly and agilely, obtaining a strong adhesive solution. 

Packaging requires high-quality labels

As is well known, labels play a very important role in every product. Labeling allows control, production line, distribution and above all, communication with the final consumer. This is why companies look for their labeling to be resistant, durable and attractive in the market. Not all labels are necessarily colorful and conspicuous, but those that carry variable information are of vital importance. 

Thermal transfer labels are a viable and safe solution in all flexible packaging or containers, their printing has different applications for all industries, which means that it has been exposed to different environmental factors and its total adhesion and legibility have been guaranteed.
