Barcode Label Printers employ one of two different printing technologies. Direct Thermal printers use a printhead to generate heat that causes a chemical reaction in specially designed paper that turns the paper black. Thermal Transfer printers also use heat, but instead of reacting the paper, the heat melts a wax or resin substance on a ribbon that runs over the label or tag material. The heat transfers ink from the ribbon to the paper. Direct thermal printers are generally less expensive, but they produce labels that can become illegible if exposed to heat, direct sunlight, or chemical vapors and have a limited life span versus Thermal Transfer (Wax / Resin Ribbon) printers.


Compact in size and low cost, point of use barcode label printers that allow for Thermal Transfer or Direct Thermal barcode printing options. Desktop models are designed to be flexible in operation for the right price and allow for a few thousand label prints a day.
