Thermal Transfer Ribbons


Choosing the right Thermal Transfer ribbon for your label printing application is critical, especially if Barcodes and Variable Data are involved.

Each label face stock (whether it be paper, polypropylene, polyester or vinyl) has different attributes that must be considered when printing your labels.

For example, Harsh Environment applications will require a ribbon that won`t scratch off or smear, while Shipping Applications require crisp, clean, “High Speed” barcodes that don`t smudge (thus compromising scanability) when boxes are rubbed together.

It is for these reasons that K2 Label offers a wide variety of ribbon formulations:

Wax, Resin Enhanced Wax, Wax/Resin and pure Resin Ribbons are all designed to perform perfectly in specific environments, through all makes and models of thermal printers.

Available in dozens of widths, lengths and colours, let a K2 Label specialist help you find the ribbon that’s right for you.
