What type of labels are there?
The world of printable labels is quite diverse, because of our long term experience with printing and labels we can offer the right type of label for almost any situation.
The most used labels are:
Direct thermal labels:
This cost-effective kind of label is mostly used as a shipping label, because of the printing technique (heat) it’s not suitable for longterm use.
Direct thermal labels are ‘printed’ through applying heat on the label, there’s no need for a ribbon, ink or toner.
Thermal transfer labels:
The thermal transfer labels uses a different kind of technology, ribbons. The ribbon is applied to the label using heat from the printhead. There are different types of ribbons, wax, resin or wax-resin. Because of the ribbon technique, this label is suited for many situations like cold storage, hazardous materials or pharmaceutical products.
RFID-labels (Radio-frequency identification):
The RFID label includes a small antenna, which is activated when the label is printed on a printer with a RFID module installed. This is more common in situations where a high volume of goods are being shipped in or out, for example in the clothing industry. Another situation where the RFID label can come in handy is for security purposes.
The last category of ‘labels’ are the wristbands. There are a lot of different types, paper, vinyl, silicone or RFID wristbands. They vary in use, from one time (paper) to long term (silicone) there is an appropriate wristband for any situation.
Of course we also sell the corresponding printer(s) with these kinds of labels.
