Longcombe Labels manufacture and supply thermal transfer printable labels that are ideal for industrial applications such
as manufacturing, metal processing and shipping where labels have to endure harsh environments, adverse weather conditions
and extremes of temperature.
Thermal transfer printers and ribbons are also available from Longcombe - we can advise you on the most suitable printer and best printer/ribbon combination based on your particular needs. Get in touch and we will be happy to help you.
Thermal transfer printable labels are produced on special Thermal Transfer Printers that apply heat to a ribbon melting ink onto the label material to form an image. The ink in the ribbon is absorbed so that the image becomes part of the material. This technique provides image quality and durability that is unmatched by other on-demand printing technologies.
Thermal transfer printable labels are ideal for barcode label printing.
Longcombe can recommend and offer a range of Thermal Transfer printers that have all been carefully chosen to meet different budget and application requirements. Whatever your requirements are, we will be able to recommend a suitable Thermal Transfer printer for you.
The ribbons used in thermal transfer printers play an important role and the selection of the best ribbon for your application
When printing using a thermal transfer printer, a thermal print head applies heat to the ribbon, which melts ink onto the label material to form the image. The ink is absorbed so that the image becomes part of the material. This technique provides image quality and durability that is unmatched by other on-demand printing technologies.
The type of label material that you are printing on will have an influence on the type of ribbon that is required.
At Longcombe Labels we have over 30 years experience of helping our customers choose the correct ribbon / label material combination. Get in touch if you would like to talk to one of our label experts.
