In most cases, a thermal transfer printer is used for additional information on an existing label. In contrast to ready-to-use printed labels with your logo, where mainly promotional aspects influence the layout, a further print might be needed e.g. to inform your customers about additional details of the product, such as contents of a tea or coffee bag, "best before" dates, data on gemstones for jewellers, size of a shoe etc., and this is where you would choose a thermal transfer printer to support your labeling needs.
You can further enhance the appearance of your label, if it shows your logo and more data, e.g. address, website etc. in addition to the product related information - If you wish, we can preprint your label with your logo and leave enough space for you to print all information your customers need to know about your products.
Typical questions regarding the use of a thermal transfer printer may be:
You would like to label your products individually with additional information that is of interest to your customer, e.g. contents, sizes, prices?
You need a bar code on your label?
You do not need large quantities of labels or you just need to put a label on some few items?
In case you need to print a high number of labels, you are interested in a good output ratio (labels per minute)?
You need a solution for waterproof labeling, e.g. for cosmetics or jewellery?
You need to print a lot of data on a label, so you need a small font with a good resolution to keep all data legible?
