Thermal Transfer vs. Direct Thermal Printing
Thermal transfer printing uses a heated ribbon to produce durable,
long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials. No ribbon is used in
direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed
material. Direct thermal media is more sensitive to light, heat and
abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material. Thermal transfer
printing typically provides a more durable, longer-lasting printed output.
The TLP 2824 is a thermal transfer printer, which gives users the option
to operate it in direct thermal mode. For customers looking for a direct
thermal-only option, Zebra offers the ZD410". Loaded with features,
this printer includes a moveable media sensor for expanded media
capabilities and virtually every modern connectivity option to fit into your
technology environment-now and in the future.
