Label printers are excellent pieces of technology for almost any business. There are a couple types of label printers that are available:
Direct thermal printers do not require ribbon and simply prints labels using a thermal element and direct thermal labels. An important tip to remember with direct thermal printers is that only direct thermal labels should be used.
Thermal transfer printers operate much of the same way as direct thermal labels except they also use ribbon. Many are able to use a direct thermal setting, but if the printer is set to thermal transfer, thermal transfer-specific labels should be used. Although ribbon must be purchased and used, the quality of printing is better and more clear than prints from direct thermal printing.
