Label Printer Ribbons

Label printer ribbons play an important role for production managers using a thermal transfer printer. Choosing the right label printer ribbon is essential as the wrong thermal transfer ribbon can affect the quality of your printed labels and may also cost you more money to fix. Label printer ribbons are placed inside the printers, allowing monochrome printing of labels with variables.

Label printer ribbons can also produce an image that is compatible with several applications and environments. You can find a wide range of label printer ribbons in the market today, but the ribbon formula you choose depends on your specific application so be sure to check the details. If you want to make your printing process smooth and clear, Maxpack offers high-quality ink ribbons, as well as wax ribbons and resin ribbons at affordable prices.


What is The Difference Between Wax and Resin Ribbons?

Wax ribbons, also known as “resin enhanced wax”, are the most common ink ribbons designed for uncoated and matte coated labels. A small amount of wax and resin inks are melted down and coated onto a PET film to prepare a wax ribbon, making them suitable for light-durable and short-term applications including storage, retail tagging, and shipping labels.

Resin ribbons are highly durable ink resins suitable for some harsh-environment or mission-critical applications. Production managers require resin ribbons for medical device labelling, chemical drum labelling and plant stakes etc.
