What quality ribbon do I need?
Thermo transfer ribbons come in three qualities with a wide range of types and features:
Wax ribbon is the most common type of thermal printing ribbon. It is recommended for coated and uncoated papers and is often used for shipping labels, warehouse labels, and retail. The ribbon is coated with a wax-based ink that requires a low transfer temperature.
Wax-resin ribbon is more resistant to changes in humidity and temperature. It has a transfer temperature between wax and resin ribbons and is often used for shipping labels, barcode labels and pharmaceutical applications. They provide a sharp and clear image on a wide range of material types.
Resin ribbon is made with a full layer of pure resin. The transfer temperature is very high, so the pressure dissolves in the label, resulting in a very durable print. It is often used for textile labels, medical applications and flexible packaging.
