What is a Thermal Printer?

Thermal Printer Basics…

Thermal Printing is the digital process of transferring heat onto paper using selective patterns and images in order to create labels, receipts and bar codes for the retail and eCommerce industries.

When paper passes over the heated (thermal) print head, the coating on the paper turns black in the areas that is heated and produces an image (ex: barcodes)

History of Printing

Printing as we know it has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years. Over a thousand years actually.

It was believed to have been created by the Chinese in and around 200 AD with primitive form of woodblock printing.

Woodblock printing is better known to you and I as stamps. Remember those cool hand size wooden stamps our grandparents used to have? The ones with the family crest on them or your current address where you dipped in ink first and then “stamped” an envelope?

Fast forward to the late 1800’s and we’re introduced to offset printing and metal typesetting. Screen printing, dot matrix and then the 60’s which gave way to the dye-sublimation process which helped the world be a more peaceful place with millions of hippy t-shirts being produced.
