Cost Effective Ribbons For Your Short Term Applications

Wax ribbons are the most commonly used and generally the most cost-effective option when it comes to thermal transfer ribbons. Due to the nature of the wax-based ink that is used to print the label image, these labels should not be subject to moisture or chemicals.

Wax melts at a lower temperature than resin, therefore, preserving the life of your printhead but also producing a softer image which makes it more susceptible to smudges and scratches. Labels printed using wax ribbons do not have the durability of a label image printed with a resin ribbon. This makes them ideal for short team applications such as shipping, retail or mailing labels. Our wax ribbons have superior edge definition and print high resolution at printing speeds up to 8 IPS.
