No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed label or tag. Direct thermal labels and tags are sensitive to light, heat and abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material. Direct
thermal label printing is usually the lowest cost printing method.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) labels and tags are currently used by the Department of Defense, retail chains such as Wal-Mart® and Target, and in many closed loop applications. Our proprietary printing process allows us to produce RFID
enabled labels faster, with greater accuracy and a lower rejection rate than anyone in the industry.
