American Tape & Label had helped companies to save a great amount of money with the thermal transfer method. Protecting the labels with a special lamination or UV varnishes, either with a matte look or a gloss look, will strengthen the durability of the labels and also protects the information being printed on the actual label. This will enable your label to become liquid resistant and give it more protection still allowing the label to be printed on. The paper can also be customized with different adhesives for special applications: removable, permanent, tamper evident, temperature sensitive, bar-coding, FDA approved for food applications, etc.
Thermal transfer paper is a material that bonds with a wax ribbon. When the thermal transfer paper is pressed thermally by the print head, the wax based ink is melted and a layer is softened and glued to the paper. This enables the image to be transferred to the thermal transfer paper and becomes a bright and vivid finished print. In other words, the heat melts a coating of ribbon so that it stays glued to the material on which the print is applied. Special software is needed please contact us for further details.
Direct thermal paper offers an inexpensive way to print in a variety of general-purpose applications, with a variety of necessary information. Direct thermal technology does not require a ribbon. Instead, a chemically coated heat-sensitive material produces images as heat is applied to the surface. Direct thermal is ideal for indoor applications where temperatures will not exceed high levels. The paper can also be ordered with different adhesives for different applications: removable, permanent, tamper evident, temperature sensitive, bar-coding, FDA approved for food applications, etc. Please contact us for further information or samples!
Over the years American Tape & Label has helped many companies save money and increase production rates by critiquing and taking on the labeling process for their company and customizing it for their particular business requirements. American Tape & Label has the ability to preprint designs or information while allowing the label to be run back through and print on for customized individual information, necessary for only one or two copies. In many cases our customers want their logo on the label that will be going out but also have other requirements creating each label to be different from one another. This will allow the customers to have their common artwork on the label, yet allow them the luxury of printing different information alleviating further charges. This is beneficial for address labels, flavors, bar-coding, food ingredients, sequential barcoding, etc. American Tape & Label is willing to go the extra mile and will give you the option of having us use our printer to print various amounts of information for you!
