4.33" X 1345' Thermal ribbon wax. Compatible with Datamax, Fargo, and Sato printers. 12 rolls per box.
Datamax printers require ribbon that is coated side in, meaning the ink is facing inwards on the roll. Depending on the printer brand, you will need to assure your ribbons are wound in the correct configuration.
If you are using thermal transfer labels, you will need a Wax Ribbon in order to print high quality barcodes. All popular sizes of thermal transfer ribbon are in stock and ready to ship same day direct to the end user.
Thermal ribbons are a critical component in thermal transfer printing. In this print method, a hot print head creates the printed image by melting the ribbon material onto the paper stock. The resulting print stabilizes quickly and is durable enough for most non-archival barcode and shipping needs.
Unlike a direct thermal printer, a thermal transfer printer will not work without thermal ribbon. The ribbon is a crucial piece of the puzzle and cannot be overlooked. Though thermal ribbon may seem like an “extra” cost to the process, thermal transfer printing is less expensive overall because of its efficiency and quality.
