Thermal transfer is used frequently for printing directly onto flexible packaging where no separate label is required.
This is a common type of packaging for products like crisps, salad bags, wrap around sleeves and so on.
The print is applied directly onto the flexible packaging on the packing line and will display best before dates and other variable information.
The printing of this information will need to be cost-effective and the print itself will need to be smudge and scratch resistant as the product will often be handled several times throughout the production process.
TTS has a wide range of products suitable for printing directly onto flexible packaging.
