Blank Direct Thermal Labels



High-Quality Blank Direct Thermal Labels

Vivid Data Group is proud to offer Blank Direct Thermal Labels to our customers. Direct Thermal (DT) printing utilizes a heat-sensitive paper that already has ink embedded within the label material meaning that it doesn’t require the use of a thermal ribbon. Direct thermal printing can be used with mobile, desktop, and industrial printers.

This printing method does not require any ink, ribbon, or toner. Although fewer printing materials result in lower printing costs, ink-free printing only yields black print—meaning color printing is not an option. Additionally, since direct thermal label material is heat sensitive, exposure to heat or sunlight can cause the label to fade over time, reducing the life of the printed label.

We carry various label sizes in different materials and colors to ensure you are choosing the best label for your application. This includes both 4″ and 5″ outer diameter (OD) rolls for desktop printers and 8″ to 12″ outer diameter rolls for industrial printers. Rolls are available in cases of 4 with a minimum order quantity of 4 rolls. Contact an expert at VDG for guidance at 855-848-4332.
