Printer type, label material, the speed of the printer, the level of quality of the equipment, which colour band fits your requirement best.
A quick guide to find the correct colour band
There are three basic qualities of ribbons. Wax is used for standard print to paper labels. Wax/ resin is used for paper labels for more durability, for example, to tolerate chemical and physical abrasion. The resin is the quality that is used in synthetic material and has the best resistance to chemicals, liquids, outdoor conditions, temperatures and other physical stresses. We will help you find the right kind and the right width.
Are colour ribbons environmentally friendly?
The technology that gets the pigment from the ribbon to the label is called thermal transfer. It is a dry process where heat and pressure transfers the colour pigment and makes the print resistant to ultraviolet light, scratches and water. Printing can be used directly. The technology generates no hazardous, volatile or organic substances and is, therefore, an environmentally friendly method that does not require special ventilation.
