Thermal Imprinting

Direct Thermal.
This process has been around for a long time and PrimeSourceOPC has years of experience with this technology. The paper runs over the thermal print head and turns black over a specific area where the coated paper is heated. This process is chemically treated and use no ink, toner or ribbon.

Thermal Transfer printing
PrimeSourceOPC can also do a transfer with a ribbon using the same Zebra printers we use for our direct thermal process. Our team can guide you through which process is better for your requirements.

Common applications include medical labels and tags, serialization, and other variable data requirements. All of our blank thermal transfer and direct thermal labels are produced in house and can meet any of your size perquisites.
