Direct Thermal Printing

There are two main different types of labels which include the thermal transfer type and also direct thermal labels. 

Direct thermal labels use heat to activate a coating on the label thus changing certain areas black to make the required image. This is made possible as the self adhesive labels are heat sensitive and when passed through the print head of the machine the product darkens to leave an image or text on the label.
