Can You Pre-Print a Direct Thermal Label?


Have you ever wondered if you can add an image and text (pre-print) on a direct thermal label? Just last week, I had two companies reach out with this very question. What are the chances of that? The answer, however, is yes—you can pre-print on direct thermal labels using either flexographic or digital printing technology to achieve the desired look.

One company chose our digital HP Indigo printer for its vibrant colors and short-run capabilities. They were thrilled with the results, which met and exceeded their expectations. These custom direct thermal labels were used as shipping labels for a new product launch.

If you have a project and need assistance with label design or ideas on what can be done with direct thermal labels, we’re here to help. Call us at 888.972.5234, Email us, or schedule a Discovery Call below. We look forward to speaking with you and bringing your label ideas to life!
