Thermal Transfer Labels


What are Thermal Transfer Labels made of?

Thermal transfer labels are mostly converted with coated materials designed to print with thermal transfer printers using thermal transfer ribbons. The three main components are face, adhesive and liner. The most common type of face are paper, polypropylene or polyester, backed with acrylic, rubber-based, hybrid or other forms of pressure sensitive adhesive.

How long do Thermal Transfer Labels last?

Most label manufacturers suggest a shelf life of one year when stored at the recommended environment. Some specialize materials provide a longer life. However, once the label is being printed and used, its shelf life depends on the application and the elements it may get exposed to. Our label specialists are here to answer the concerns you may have.

Able Label stocks a wide range of thermal transfer labels that are compatible with most popular printer brands and models including Zebra®, Honeywell Datamax™, Intermec®, Sato and more, as well as desktop printers such as Zebra® ZD420t, ZD500, ZD620t, GK420t, GX420t, GX430t, and TLP2844.

Need the right core size for your desktop printer?

Here at Able Label, we stock all our thermal transfer labels on a 6” or 8” O.D. x 3” core roll. However, we do cater to those who have a desktop printer. After selecting your product, you will be given the option to convert the roll from the default size to a 4” O.D. x 1” Core. When selecting the quantity, the number you enter will reflect how many 3” core rolls will be converted onto 4” O.D. x 1” core rolls.

If you are unsure what size roll your printer requires, please contact us and one of our Label Specialists will be happy to assist you.
