Custom Thermal Labels

Custom Thermal Labels – Made Perfect for Your Application

Renell Label Print will help you determine the correct custom thermal label for your printer and your application.  Thermal printed labels are commonly used for food service and retail applications where speed of service and accuracy are important.

Direct Thermal Labels

Because direct thermal printers do not use ink to print, the paper itself must be treated with a special heat sensitive top coating to allow the print head to imprint the image and or text on the label surface.

Thermal Transfer Labels

When a thermal ink ribbon is used to imprint the label, this is called thermal transfer.  In this format, the heated print head transfers the ink from the ribbon to the label surface. Most imprinting machines can be switched to do either.

Thermal Transfer Label and Direct Thermal Printed Applications

Either type of custom printed thermal label allows the user to vary his imprint from item to item. These are ideal for caterers, industrial parts, food snacks, and more. Renell will manufacture the base label, and you will print your variable information.

Thermal Transfer Labels- More Options

Thermal transfer labels are available in many more material options than direct thermal labels. Thermal ribbons are available to print on matte or glossy laminated labels, on metallic labels and poly labels, and on a variety of paper labels and tag stocks.  There are many choices of ribbon/ink combinations that solve specific requirements- including outdoor use and color imprinting. For your convenience, Renell can supply you with the correct thermal transfer ribbon for your specific printer.

In addition to custom printed thermal labels we also provide custom blank thermal labels. Custom printed thermal labels can be run through a thermal printer and be imprinted with item/product names, ingredients, weights, barcodes, or instructions.
