Thermal transfer labels receive praise for their resistance to fading and the ability to prevent images from smearing. Thermal transfer printing is ideal for barcode labels and other applications due to its durability and longer shelf life. Its material is made from a bright white face stock and standard adhesive. Unlike direct thermal label materials, you can print color on thermal transfer labels allowing you more options with its design and intended use.
Thermal transfer printing offers many advantages, such as:
In order for your barcode labels to be read by a scanner, they must be printed in black or a single dark color because red and white colored barcodes won’t be read by the scanner. Barcodes must also be a minimum height of .625 (5/8ths) by 1.25 wide. You can get custom barcodes assigned to your product(s) by contacting GS1. Please note that each individual product, manufacturer and product type/quantity has a designated UPC.
Great labels every time with fast turnaround times and prices. Melinda is wonderful to work with and highly recommend this printing company.
Great experience from start to finish. Cari was excellent in helping us through the process. When she was on vacation, the Consolidated team continued follow-up. The final product was beyond what I had hoped for… excellent, fantastic, beautiful, on-time, on budget and as promised to mention a few adjectives. I am looking forward to working with them again soon. I know you will be impressed.
