Thermal transfer printers work by applying heat to a ribbon made of wax or resin-based ink. The heat applied by the thermal printhead melts that wax or resin onto the paper or label surface, creating your printed image.

Thermal transfer resin ribbons manufacturer use pure and full resin. They melt at a much higher temperature, dissolving into the material on which they’re printed, resulting in extreme durability.

Resin Thermal Transfer Ribbons Feature

    • Most expensive ribbon type
    • For use on non-paper, synthetic stocks
    • Most durable of the ribbon types
    • Good for labeling very sensitive medical applications and chemicals, textile or garment labels, automotive labels, and flexible packaging

Unlike certain situations where having the top-of-the-line product is better than an economy version, full resin ribbons can be overkill when the situation doesn’t call for it. You should likely bypass them for either of the more economic options detailed above if your project doesn’t necessitate their durability.
