Thermal transfer printing

Thermal transfer printing is a digital printing process that involves guiding a special, temperature-sensitive colour-coated ribbon between the printed surface and a thermal print head which consists of hundreds of computer-controlled heating elements that are responsible for transferring the print. If a thermal element is triggered and its head heated, the colour layer in the ribbon melts and this is transferred to the material being printed. The material's smooth surface ensures excellent colour printing and precise print quality.
