Thermal Printing: The Better Way to Print Labels

Choosing an office label printer can be annoying and time-consuming… but it’s an important step. If you choose wrong – a bad printer could wreak havoc on your business with errors and delays that eat into profits.

But with so many options out there — thermal, ink jet, or laser — it’s hard to know what’s best, especially when you don’t have a ton of time for trial and error.  

Why not simplify your label printing?

There’s a reason why small businesses are migrating to thermal printing, and that’s because it’s faster, easier and far less frustrating overall.

Read on to uncover why.

What are thermal label printers?
And how do they work?

It’s incredible… but thermal printers actually print WITHOUT ink.


They use specially coated thermal paper that changes color when heated.

Why is this better for you?

Less supplies to buy means fewer moving parts that might break or jam… like annoying ink cartridges or ribbons.

Plus, there’s no need to waste an entire label sheet. Save time and paper with sustainable printing.

All of this not only makes your day-to-day a breeze, but much more affordable, too!

Why a thermal printer over other printers?

When compared to an ink jet or laser printer, a thermal printer saves you valuable time and effort. Here’s why:

  • Ship confidently knowing there’s no smudging when exposed to rain
  • Print instantly with no warm-up or drying time required
  • Switch out label sizes easily when needed
  • Take work with you on-the-go with a small label printer
