Time : 2022-09-10 Hits : 3

At present, the commonly used label paper in the market is mainly coated paper label and thermal paper label. Some people will ask: how can I distinguish? Can't distinguish between coated paper and thermal paper? In fact, the simplest way to test thermal paper is to use your nails to scratch the paper, leaving a black scratch.

1. First, let's understand the characteristics of coated paper labels and thermal paper labels:
(1) The material characteristics of coated paper label: non waterproof, non oil proof, and tear able. It can be divided into matte, plain and bright.
Optional materials: graxindi coated paper, yellow coated paper and imported coated paper.
Scope of application: supermarket, inventory management, clothing tag, industrial production line.
(2) Material characteristics of thermal paper label: non waterproof, non oil proof and tear able.
Optional materials: imported thermal paper and domestic thermal paper. In fact, the thermal paper produced by many domestic manufacturers is also very effective.
Scope of application: mainly used in supermarket electronic scale labels, chemical laboratories, etc.

2. Then let's talk about the difference between coated paper labels and thermal paper labels:
(1) The storage time of coated paper label is longer than that of thermal paper label, so when you buy a label, you need to decide according to the storage time of the goods you stick.
(2) The coated paper label is less affected by temperature, but the thermal paper label is greatly affected by temperature. Therefore, if the label attached to the product surface is greatly affected by temperature, the printing factory generally recommends that the coated paper label be selected.
(3) Coated paper labels need to be printed together with carbon tape. Thermal paper labels do not need carbon tape printing, and can be printed directly in the barcode printer.

3. Finally, we will talk about the prices of coated paper labels and thermal paper labels:
In general, how does the printing factory quote? Whether it is coated paper label or thermal paper label, it can be customized according to the needs of customers. If there is a sample, it can be printed directly according to the sample. The most important thing is that the quotation is not based on the amount of money, but depends on the printing quantity. The more the quantity, the more cost-effective the price is!
