Label Ales specialises in the sales of label printing machines and components. If you purchase one of their label printers, they offer training and support for the label printer. There are two main types of printers used in label printing, they are direct thermal and thermal transfer.

Direct thermal label printers use a heat compatible paper which goes on top of the actual label in the printhead, where the heating elements are situated. The printhead elements heat up and the heat compatible paper which then transfers the desired text onto the label in black.

Thermal transfer label printers work with heat and ink, although this ink isn't the traditional ink that standard cartridges use. Thermal transfer printers use ribbons for ink, you place the label and ribbon in the thermal transfer label printer and as it heats up the ribbon bleeds ink onto the label producing the desired text.

Thermal transfer label printing is widely used because, the label lasts longer than their direct thermal label printing counterparts. There are many benefits to these label printers they are able to produce your desired label quickly. They are compatible with most computers making it easier for you to connect your device. Thermal transfer label printers are also portable making them easy to move around if need be.
