The Benefits of Thermaflex Labels for Mobile Printing


Print Thermal Transfer Labels From Any Direct Thermal (Mobile) Printer!

Do you have an application that requires a weather and fade-resistant label for your mobile printing?

Ever since the printer manufacturers stopped making thermal transfer mobile printers along with the discontinuation of the Zebra Thermalock 4000D, your choices have been extremely limited in finding a label solution for outdoor applications. We have customers who have been testing different materials in their mobile printers but have not come up with the perfect solution, until now.  We are excited to announce a new solution to the mobile printing market. 

Introducing our new line of Thermaflex labels.  ThermaFlex labels are an innovative label product that combines thermal transfer ribbon and label into a single roll. This allows you to be able to print durable thermal transfer labels from a direct thermal printer.  The basic idea is that we can take any labels stock, paper, polypro, or polyester and laminate a thermal transfer ribbon over the top and turn your direct thermal printer into a thermal transfer printer, instantly!  This is a time-tested tried and true technology.

In this article, we will explore the possibilities of what Thermaflex Labels can do for you and your company.

  • More Durable: Thermal transfer labels will not fade, are more resistant to UV, temperature, moisture, chemicals, scratches and smudges.
  • Flexibility: Labels can be printed using any thermal transfer printer, including direct thermal and especially mobile printers.
        • Can be any size shape or form
        • Can be produced with face cuts

With the vast number of label options available, choosing the right label solution is crucial. One of the most popular options is Thermaflex labels. This blog post will explore why Thermaflex labels are favored by packaging engineers and product managers worldwide.

1. High-Quality Durability: Thermaflex labels are known for their durability and resistance to extreme temperatures. These labels are made from any labels material, but mostly from polyester or polypropylene, which is a high-quality material that can withstand different environments. Whether the products are being shipped in cold or warm temperatures, Thermaflex labels can last, keeping the product’s information accessible.

2. Excellent Adhesive Properties: One of the critical elements of labeling is adhesive properties. The label must adhere to the product, container, or packaging material. Thermaflex labels have excellent adhesion properties, ensuring secure attachment to any container or product, regardless of texture or surface.

3. Aesthetic Appeal: Labels also play an essential role in the aesthetic appeal of products. Not only do they provide essential product information, but they can also add appeal to the product and its packaging. Thermaflex labels are available in various colors, finishes, and sizes, allowing packaging engineers to choose the look that best represents the product and its brand. The flexibility of these labels adds versatility to a product’s packaging.

4. Cost-Effective Labeling: In addition to high-quality durability, excellent adhesive properties, and aesthetic appeal, Thermaflex labels are cost-effective. They are an affordable alternative to other labels made from premium materials without sacrificing quality and durability.

5. High Customization: Different products need different types of labels. Thermaflex labels are highly customizable, allowing packaging engineers to create the right label for each product. This customization includes the ability to print logos and other graphics, and product-related information such as hazard warnings, batch numbers, and barcodes. This added customization offers greater flexibility and accuracy for specific labeling requirements.


In conclusion, packaging engineers, product managers, sourcing managers, and purchasing agents are always searching for the best label solution. Thermaflex labels provide a cost-effective, flexible, high-quality, and aesthetically appealing option. These labels are highly durable, have excellent adhesive properties, and are customizable for any packaging need. By adding Thermaflex labels to their packaging solutions, packaging engineers can efficiently and effectively provide the necessary product information and contribute to the overall presentation of the product. The ultimate goal of all packaging engineering is to protect, preserve, and deliver products to intended destinations, and Thermaflex labels can adequately contribute to achieving this.

Mobile printers enable users in a wide range of industries to print material on demand – where and when it is needed. These portable, small printers generally don’t have room for ribbons, limiting their use to direct thermal labels – until now.

With ThermaFlex, you can print thermal transfer labels from any mobile direct thermal printers.  To find out more about this exciting product, send us an Email or give us a call 888.972.5234.  Samples are available upon request.
