Thermal Transfer Ribbons

I.D. Images offers a variety of wax thermal transfer, wax-resin thermal transfer, and resin-based thermal transfer ribbons specifically designed for printing on our thermal transfer labels. To achieve the optimal print quality, it is necessary to match up the correct ribbon with the correct printer. In most cases, for standard print requirements wax ribbons are efficient. For those projects requiring resistance towards chemicals on the printing surface, wax-resin thermal ribbons are highly suggested. 

Our ribbons offer superior smudge and scratch resistance and unbeatable edge definition. They have excellent barcode ribbon scannability. We also offer a variety of kits which perfectly match ribbons types and sizes with labels. We have included typical label dimensions to help you match your labels with the correct ribbon. To figure out how long of a thermal transfer ribbon you need to match with your labels, calculate the total length of your labels in feet and that will give you the length that you need (assume an extra 10% for scrap). If you need help determining the correct ribbon, contact us at 330.220.7300. We also offer sequential barcode printing services for your convenience, allowing you to only have to deal with the final printed product.

Thermal Transfer Label and Ribbon Kits

  • All kits are 4x6 perfed
  • No waste. Work with one box of products at a time instead of separate boxes
  • Label and ribbon types and sizes matched perfectly for best quality printing
  • Both label and ribbons will switch out at the same time for speedier printing transitions
  • One invoice / One shipping charge

We only sell through distributors. However, if you are an end-user, give us a call and we will work to set you up with a local distributor.
