There are two thermal printing methods: direct thermal and thermal transfer. Each method uses a thermal printhead that applies heat to the surface being marked. Thermal transfer printing uses a heated ribbon to produce durable, long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials. No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed material. Direct thermal media is more sensitive to light, heat and abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material.

 

Thermal label printers are ideal for bar code printing because they produce accurate, high-quality images with excellent edge definition. Thermal printers are engineered to print within tight tolerances and to produce the exact bar widths that successful bar code printing and scanning require. Each technology can produce one- and two-dimensional bar code symbologies, graphics and text at the same print resolutions and speeds.

Direct thermal printing uses chemically treated, heat-sensitive media that blackens when it passes under the thermal printhead. Direct thermal printers have no ink, toner, or ribbon.


Their simple design makes thermal printers durable and easy to use. Because there is no ribbon, direct thermal printers cost less to operate than inkjet, laser, impact, and thermal transfer printers. Most mobile printers use direct thermal technology.

Thermal media images may fade over time. If the label is overexposed to heat, light, or other catalysts, the material will darken and make the text or bar code unreadable. For these reasons, direct thermal printing is not used for lifetime identification applications. The readability of direct thermal labels, wristbands, and receipt papers varies greatly, depending on the usage conditions, but the technology provides ample lifespan for many common bar code printing applications including shipping labels, patient and visitor identification, receipts, and ticket printing.

For example, direct thermal labels can easily remain scannable after spending six months in storage in a distribution center, and direct thermal patient wristbands have a special coating that makes them water- and chemical-resistant. Common thermal printing applications include: shipping labels, including compliance labels; receipts; pick tickets; coupons; event tickets; citations and parking tickets; name tags; visitor passes; and more.

In thermal transfer printing, a thermal printhead applies heat to a ribbon, which melts ink onto the material to form the image. The ink is absorbed so that the image becomes part of the media. This technique provides image quality and durability that is unmatched by other on-demand printing technologies.
Thermal transfer printers can accept a wider variety of media than direct thermal models, including paper, polyester, and polypropylene materials. Thermal transfer printers can create extremely durable wristbands, asset tags, and certification labels, in addition to common labels, tags, and tickets. The specific label material and ribbon must be carefully matched to ensure print performance and durability.

By selecting the right media-ribbon combination, as well as specialty adhesives, users can create archival-quality labels to withstand temperature extremes, ultraviolet exposure, chemicals, sterilization, and more. Typical thermal transfer applications include: product identification; circuit board tracking; permanent identification; sample and file tracking; asset tagging; inventory identification; certification labels such as UL/CSA; laboratory specimens; cold storage and freezers; and outdoor applications.

FeedYourZebra supplies only Genuine Zebra direct thermal and thermal transfer labels.

Zebra Z-Perform 1000D is not recommended for applications involving long term exposure to sunlight or extreme heat.
  • Zebra Z-Select 2000D - a smooth bright white, topcoated direct thermal label stock which produces high contrast black images with Zebra thermal printers. The thermally sensitive top coating ensures maximum printhead life, gives superior smudge resistance and protects the label from environmental conditions. The adhesive gives good performance across a range of temperatures and on a wide variety of surfaces. Zebra Z-Select 2000D is not recommended for applications involving long term exposure to sunlight or extreme heat.

Zebra thermal transfer labels require the use of a suitable thermal transfer ribbon to print an image. The range consists of :

  • Zebra Z-Perform 1000T - an uncoated, supercalendered thermal transfer paper label stock, which produces scannable barcodes and acceptable images when matched with Zebra  thermal transfer ribbons. The general purpose permanent acrylic based adhesive offers high initial tack and adhesion on corrugated packaging materials for applications of less than three years (indoor usage). Zebra Z-Perform 1000T is recommended for use with Zebra 2300 and Zebra 2100 wax thermal transfer ribbons.
  • Zebra Z-Select 2000T - an ultra smooth topcoated white paper label stock, which produces excellent quality images, including rotated barcodes, graphics and small images, at speeds up to 305mm per second. Compatible with Zebra 2100 and Zebra 2300 wax thermal transfer ribbons and Zebra 3400 wax / resin thermal transfer ribbons for standard thermal printing. Suitable for use with Zebra 3200 wax / resin thermal transfer ribbons for applications requiring improved smear and and scratch resistance.
  • Zebra Z-Ultimate 3000T White and Zebra Z-Ultimate 3000T Silver - a top coated gloss polyester thermal transfer label stock with excellent print quality, available in gloss white and gloss silver. Coated specially for use with Zebra 4800 and Zebra 5095 resin ribbons to provide outstanding print quality and image durability. High strength acrylic adhesive offers superior strength and adhesion for a wide variety of surfaces. Unparalleled smear and scratch resistance for a thermal transfer label.
  • Zebra 8000T Cryocool - thermal transfer printable polypropylene label coated with a high performance acrylic adhesive for use in cryogenic applications. The adhesive offers resistance to temperatures as low as -196C for liquid nitrogen applications. It is designed for use with Zebra 5095 resin ribbons to produce excellent print quality. The smear and scratch resistance together with low temperature performance make 8000T Cryocool and excellent choice for applications requiring a combination of image durability and extreme low temperature adhesion.

 

 

If you are looking for genuine Zebra direct thermal labels, Zebra thermal transfer labels, Zebra thermal transfer ribbons or Zebra replacement thermal printheads, then you'e found the right place and FeedYourZebra can help.

 

With over 10 years experience, we are a leading Zebra authorised reseller, supplying genuine Zebra products throughout the UK and EU. We have the widest stock of Zebra labels, ribbons and printheads available for next day delivery. All items are shipped free of charge - even to the EU (for a list of the countries we supply see here).

 

We supply direct thermal and thermal transfer labels for Zebra desktop printers. Zebra desktop range consists of LP2824, TLP2824, LP2844, TLP2844, GC420d, GC420t, GK420d, GK420t, GX420d, GX420t, GK430t, GC420d, GC420t and GT800 printers. Labels for the Zebra desktop printers are supplied on 25mm cores and have a maximum outside diameter of 5" (or 125mm). They are not interchangeable with labels for Zebra industrial printers due to the different size core and small maximum capacity.

With the exception of the Zebra LP2824 and TLP2824, the maximum label width available is 102mm. The LP2824 and TLP2824 has a maximum label width of 57mm.

Zebra thermal transfer ribbons are available for the Zebra desktop range, however, you should note that certain models are direct thermal only printers - so don't have the capability for using thermal transfer ribbons - these are LP2824, LP2844, GK420d, GX420d, GC420d printers.

 

FeedYourZebra supplies labels for Zebra mid-range, industrial and high performance printers. Labels for these printers are supplied on 76mm cores and have a maximum outside diameter (roll size) of 8" (or 203mm).

Different models in the industrial and high performance range are available - some of these models have differing maximum print widths - and so the maximum width of label that can be used varies across the ranges.
