TIP: Avoid a mistake - don't
buy a small, limited use, thermal only printer (e.g. Dymo,
Seikosha, Seiko, Costar, Brother, Kroy) from office stationers or
computer shop - you will end up paying more than the cost of the
printer in label costs for the expensive labels they use;
which come in a poor range of sizes (no colours either) and
because they are direct thermal will fade and discolour yellow
The thermal printers we
recommend, have a wide variety of uses, as well as printing paper
labels and can print scratch resistant resin ink on a wide variety of materials; perforated tickets, continuous paper
receipts, vinyl signs, plastic tags, shrink wrap cable markers,
despatch documents, forms, etc. All up to 4" wide and almost
as long as you like. The lowest cost labels are readily available
in a huge range of sizes in blank white or blank coloured.
* Printing using a ribbon is cheaper
because the cost of labels + ribbons is typically cheaper
than labels that are printable without a ribbon. Ribbons
produce better readable barcodes which are more durable
(ribbons also prolong your printers life and did I mention
they are cheaper).

All label printers use rolls
of pre-cut labels on continuous backing paper (see
picture below, in labels section). The gaps between each label
allows the printer to sense exactly where each new label
Some complex label sets (and tickets or tags)
have a black marks to tell the printer where to start.
Most thermal label printers allow you to use
either rolls of (a) special paper labels that go black with
heat, or (b) ordinary plain paper labels that the printer melts
black wax ink on to (or black resin ink, or a wax / resin mix).
Ink is on
100-300m long ribbons (like the ribbons in many plain paper fax
machines). Every 1cm of label that feeds out of the printer,
uses 1cm of ribbon.
DT means Direct Thermal -
the labels that go black with heat.
TT means Thermal Transfer
- the plain paper labels that need wax or resin melted on to
them to form the image. Surprisingly, it is cheaper to
use plain paper labels and a ribbon, than special DT labels.
Using a ribbon also gives more durable and clearer images.
Linerless labels are available that reduce
waste and allow more labels per roll - your printer must be
setup to handle linerless.
