Thermal Label and Ribbon Printers

Which printer is right for your job?

Several factors should be considered before buying your own barcode labeling thermal printing system. The primary factor is quantity of thermal material printed - how many thermal labels will print in a given day. Other factors include the type of thermal label material used (rolls, fan-folded packs, or sheets), PC accessibility and thermal printer footprint size.

Thermal printing equipment is rated based on typical quantities (units = lineal inches of printed material):

  • Light duty desktop usage (up to 1,000 inches per day)
  • Light duty industrial usage (up to 25,000 inches per day)
  • Medium duty industrial usage (up to 100,000 inches per day)
  • Heavy duty industrial usage (up to 250,000 inches per day)

The typical printing system requires a dedicated PC computer (Windows XP or higher), which you supply.

Once you have your PC, Thermal Images offers several Printer Packages with everything else you need to get started -- including the printer, power cord/power supply, software, connecting cables and a "starter set" of premium wax ribbons and premium paper labels. All printer packages include free technical support for 90 days via phone, fax or email.
