Informing the user and guaranteeing product traceability

Retail labels contain all the information that accompanies the product during the various logistics and retail stages. A poorly-printed or damaged barcode, price or description may complicate the process of product distribution and in some cases even generate penalties imposed by retailers.

Furthermore, the print may form an integral part of the product and contribute to the quality of its brand image.

Information printed using Thermal Transfer offers a very high quality visual finish and can be easily read with the naked eye and barcode scanners.

Retail from ITW

Thermal transfer ribbons used in these settings need to produce sharp text, bar codes, batch numbers, date codes and other imagery on a broad range of materials, including papers and films. Good durability is also required so the retail pricing labels or tags information stays legible and remains scanable at the checkout.
