Thermal Ribbons


Barcode Printer Ribbons


Barcode-IT can supply excellent quality ribbons that are perfectly suited to your printer, application and label material to ensure that you print perfect labels every time. Matching the ribbons you purchase to your labels is extremely important, as mis-matched labels and ribbons can cause images to smudge and labels to be rejected by customers.


Whatever your thermal ribbon needs, Barcode-IT can recommend and provide a solution for you. We take time to speak to you and get to know your specific needs, and will go that extra mile to ensure that you get the right products every time plus our prices are really competitive and we keep a huge number of ribbon types and sizes in stock, to provide you with efficient, next day delivery.


We supply thermal ribbons for Datamax, Zebra, Printronix, Toshiba TEC, Sato, Intermec, Monarch and many more printers - just let us know what you're using and we'll provide a competitive quotation.


What different types of ribbon are there?

There are 3 major ribbon types that are used in industry; wax, wax/resin and resin:


  • Resin ribbons are most commonly used in harsh environments with polypropylene or polyester labels, where heat or chemical resistance is an issue.


  • Wax ribbons are most commonly used for printing on paper labels


  • Wax/Resin ribbons offer a more durable image for paper labels. 


The wax ribbons we supply are now far more environmentally friendly and are manufactured in a solvent free production process. Some of the only ribbons in the world that are able to boast this.


The majority of ribbons purchased by our customers are black ribbons for printing a variety of label types, but we can also supply coloured ribbons for more specialised projects - but make sure you let us know w  hat you're using your labels for as barcode labels only work in certain colours, otherwise the barcodes can't be read by the scanner.


Within the 3 categories above there are variations of ribbon to suit very specific applications, for example ribbons to produce print on labels that must survive extreme temperatures for the manufacturing process, etc.
