More than Printer Ribbons

If you have a Thermal Transfer printer you will need a transfer ribbon to print your labels. Below is a list of the most popular Thermal transfer printers in the market place and the ribbon code for the printers. We have also included a guide for which composition is best suited for your printing requirement.


Fast facts:

You can get a high capacity ribbon (300M+ long) for some desk top printers but most are made for mid & high level industrial printers. Standard desk printers have a 70m+ length ribbon.

Ribbons come in three main compositions; wax based, wax/resin based and resin only based. The later two are the most used. The wax/resin is great for product labeling and where low abrasion is a factor. The resin ribbon is a must for asset labels where rubbing can occur.
