What are direct thermal labels?

Direct thermal labels are designed to react to heat. They come into direct contact with the print-head (through the thermal label printer) which heats up and reacts with the surface of the thermal label to create the print. The nature of this material means it is ideal for short-term print solutions. Examples of direct thermal label applications include:

  • Dispatch
  • Box end
For more information on the difference between direct thermal labels and thermal transfer labels, see direct thermal vs thermal transfer.
