Optimedia Labs sells thermal ribbons for Zebra, Datamax, GoDEX, Intermec, Printronix, SATO, Toshiba, TSC and many other thermal transfer printers.
When buying thermal transfer ribbons, it’s important to know:
In general, wax thermal ribbons are the cheapest. They’re good for general purpose labels that do not require extended durability. On the other end of the spectrum, resin thermal ribbons offer the best durability and can be used for your most demanding applications including GHS chemical labels. In the middle are wax-resin or resin-enhanced thermal transfer ribbons, which add resin to the wax for greater durability.
We recommend starting your search for thermal ribbons by printer brand, which helps to ensure the best fit. You can also use our filters to select ribbons by type, size, roll size, or color.
