One of the most critical aspects of ensuring good thermal transfer print quality is having a quality thermal transfer ribbon correctly matched to the label substrate. Furthermore, initial print quality is just the start. What happens to the label beyond the initial printing both inside and outside of the production facility? Will the label be rubbing against guide rails on the conveyor? Will it be rubbing against other product on the conveyor? What about during shipping? Will the labeled product be stored outdoors? Does the ribbon need to meet UL requirements? What about BS5609 requirements? All of these issues must be considered when selecting the best ribbon for the application.
