A Thermal transfer printing system is comprised of a printer, a material substrate and a ribbon, which really must act as a team to produce the best labels for a given application. The process is relatively simple where printhead heat causes an ink substance to melt onto a receiver or substrate. Selecting the right combination of the three, however, is what will determine whether the resulting label is suitable for a given application.
