What’s the difference of Direct Thermal Labels and Thermal Transfer Labels?

Direct Thermal Label (DTL) has the same function as thermal paper rolls. It has a chemical on the surface that could change color when exposed to heat. For direct thermal label, just need a thermal printer. No need for Ribbon.

Advantage: Quick printing, cost saving.
Disadvantage: The image will fade away in the end.

Printer Technology: Direct Thermal

We supply direct thermal labels with 3-level proofing. The 3-level proofing can protect the label from scratches/friction, normal heat, water and oil.
