Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
OnlineLabels.com®, one of the largest suppliers of blank labels for laser and inkjet printers in the world, announced today the expansion of roll label offerings for direct thermal and thermal transfer printers. Now available on the website, the Company has introduced new sizes of both direct thermal label rolls and thermal transfer label rolls on one inch and three inch cores.
“We’ve become one of the largest online retailers of sheet labels by continuously introducing new sizes, and saw a fantastic opportunity to do the same with labels on rolls,” says Dave Carmany, president of OnlineLabels.com. “We discovered a large percentage of our current customers were using direct thermal and thermal transfer printers more frequently, so it made sense to offer more roll label sizes.”
Customers may now choose from over 30 standard roll label configurations for either direct thermal label or thermal transfer label printing. In addition, each configuration is available on both the 1” and 3” cores for use in printers such as Zebra and Datamax. The Company also offers custom roll labels sizes as well.
When selecting the right roll label, users must first know which roll label material is right for them. Direct thermal printers require no ink, toner, or ribbon to apply print to the label surface. Direct thermal printers are not able to print in color. The most common applications for direct thermal roll labels are shipping labels and barcode labels.
Thermal Transfer printers, on the other hand, do require a ribbon to apply print to the label surface. A thermal print-head applies heat to the ribbon, which in turn melts ink on to the label surface to create the printed image. The most commonly used applications for Thermal Transfer printing include product identification, inventory and asset labeling, as well as bar code labels that need to last longer than six months.
“As we do with our label sheets, there are no minimum order requirements for roll labels, unlike many places out there,” adds Carmany. “You can simply order one label roll from us, whereas many other stores require the customer to purchase a case of roll labels, which they may not need all at once.”
