Printing methods

The first method uses direct or thermal printing which applies heat to a chemically treated surface alongside a thermal printhead that turns paper black wherever the heat is applied. This method of printing your die cut hang tag is common to grocery and shipping brands.

The only drawback with this method is that the heat sensitive material gets dark often when exposed to extra heat or even light.

An alternative to this, which can be considered more stable is thermal transfer printing which makes use of a ribbon which has the ability to print in black and in color.

Hang tags produced here can handle extreme exposure as well as high temperatures thereby producing a higher quality product. Thermal transfer printing results in hang tags with awesome scannability, relevant to shopping industries.
