The main difference is direct thermal printing does not use a ribbon. Direct thermal printing does require the use of special heat sensitive substrate material. The printhead
activates the heat sensitive coating on this material forming a black image. Thermal transfer printing uses a ribbon from which ink is transferred under heat and pressure
to the substrate.
Ribbons are used only with thermal transfer labels NOT with direct thermal labels.
The ribbon width should extend past the edge of the label material to prevent damage to the print head from abrasion by the label material. For example, a 2.5 wide label
would require a 3 inch wide ribbon. Many ribbons are actually larger than their specified width (4 inch ribbons, for example, are typically 4.33 inches wide).
Specify the brand of printer when you purchase ribbon to assure ribbons are wound in the correct configuration – either ink side wound “in” (also called “coated side in” – CSI)
or ink side wound “out” (also called “coated side out” – CSO).
