A thermal transfer printer uses a ribbon. As the labels are printed, the printer heats the ribbon to transfer wax and resin onto the labels. Ribbons come in more than just black so that you can change colors, but still can only print one color at a time. Labels created this way are scratch resistant and long lasting, so work well for mailing labels and other labels you do not want to fade. Labels can be detailed using this method. Direct thermal printers require no ribbon. The printer applies heat directly to the labels to create the images. They can only print in black. Labels printed with direct thermal are not scratch resistant and do not last as long. The printing disintegrates when left in long-term heat. They are cheaper to print since no ribbon is required. This type of printing is often used with receipts.
