What is Direct Thermal Printing?

Direct thermal printing uses heat-sensitive paper with a heated print head to create an image on the label without the use of an ink ribbon. This method of printing is ideal for labels that will be stored in a climate controlled environment, or short-term labeling needs. Common uses are for shipping labels or short term price tagging for retail businesses.
