What is Thermal Transfer Printing?

Auto ID Systems supply thermal transfer labels of various sizes. But what actually is Thermal Transfer Printing? To find out, keep reading our blog post below!

Thermal transfer printing is a method of printing that uses heat to register an impression on paper or labels. The printer uses a thermal printhead to transfer a solid ink from a ribbon onto a label. Thermal transfer ribbons are needed for this kind of printing – they’re a thin film on a roll with a black coating. This ribbon runs between the printhead and label, the heat coming off the printhead then heats up the ribbon’s coating which transfers to the surface of the label and makes an imprint. You can view all our ribbons we have available on our thermal ink ribbons page.

Advantages of Thermal Transfer Printing

There are many benefits from choosing this type of printing:

  • Print quality
  • Consistent image on every label
  • Fast printing times
  • Fewer moving parts means less likely to get jammed or to malfunction
  • Can be used on a wide variety of substrates
  • Images produced by this process are durable and very resistant to chemicals
