    What is the difference between direct thermal and thermal transfer printing?

    Direct thermal printing uses label material with a heat sensitive coating. When heated by the print head, the thermal coating turns black to create the image.

    Whereas thermal transfer printing uses a thermal transfer ribbon (i.e. an ink ribbon also known as a carbon ribbon). The print head heats the ribbon and ink is deposited onto the label material to create the image creating a more permanent print.
