Create attractive labels large and small with Rice Lake’s broad selection of label printing models.
Direct Thermal Printers
Direct thermal printers require the use of heat activated thermal papers and films, but require no transfer ribbon. The print color is primarily limited to black. Labels will darken over time if the surface gets scratched or is subjected to heat and sunlight.
Direct Thermal & Thermal Transfer Printers
Thermal transfer printers require the use of a carbon ribbon which gets transferred onto the label via heat. The ribbons can be different colors, and the printing is very crisp and durable—excellent for high density bar codes and labels that require longevity.
