Thermal Transfer Ribbons

Thermal Transfer Ribbons
Marktec offers a variety of wax thermal transfer ribbons, wax-resin thermal transfer ribbons, and resin-based thermal transfer ribbons specifically designed for printing on our thermal transfer labels.

Our ribbons offer superior smudge and scratch resistance and unbeatable edge definition. Our ribbons have excellent bar code scannability. We also offer a variety of ribbon and label kits which perfectly match ribbons types and sizes with labels. We have included typical label dimensions to help you match your labels with the correct ribbon. To figure out how long of a thermal transfer ribbon you need to match with your labels, calculate the total length of your labels in feet and that will give you the length of ribbon that you need (assume an extra 10% for scrap). If you need help determining the correct ribbon, email our customer service department. We also offer sequential barcode printing services for your convenience, allowing you to only have to deal with the final printed product.

Customers can now order our thermal transfer ribbons by emailing our customer service department. Click here to send us an email.
