Direct Thermal Labels

Direct thermal labels are ideal for short life label applications, eliminating the need for a thermal transfer ribbon.

Great print quality and barcode readability can still be achieved but shelf life compared to thermal transfer labels is reduced. Direct thermal labels are widely used within the food industry, as the need for reduced costs and consumable changeover time is important.iso9001

Label material is stocked in economy, semi-coated and top coated face papers with permanent, removable and deep freeze adhesives as standard.

With a production facility in the Midlands, Labfax is able to manufacture direct thermal labels to our customer’s exact specification for Cab label printers but also all other thermal transfer printer manufacturers on the market in over 300 cutter sizes.

Short, medium and large runs offered and labels can be supplied pre-printed in up to 6 colours.
