HPRT Thermal Transfer Printers: The Cross-Border E-Commerce Choice for Amazon FBA Labels

2023-12-12 16:23

In the global delivery and courier industry, thermal label printers, especially shipping label printers, are widely used. Many cross-border e-commerce and export businesses also choose these printers for Amazon FBA labels and product barcodes. However, due to the heat sensitivity and scratch vulnerability of thermal labels - such as the high temperatures in shipping containers causing barcode blurring and scanning issues - an increasing number of cross-border sellers are turning to thermal transfer printers to address these challenges.


Thermal Transfer Label Printers: Durable and Versatile for Amazon FBA Label Printing Needs

A thermal transfer printer, operates by melting ink from a ribbon (also called a carbon ribbon or thermal transfer ribbon) onto the paper, label, or other materials via a heated print head. This printing method produces long-lasting and clear results.

Indeed, Amazon has specific requirements for product label printing, especially for sellers using its Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service. Amazon recommends using thermal transfer printers or laser printers for printing FBA product labels and Amazon box ID label, as they produce clear, durable labels that resist fading due to friction or long-term storage.

In contrast, labels produced by thermal technology are less durable under high temperatures and have a shorter shelf life, being subject to blurring or damage during transit due to heat, rain, and friction - significantly impacting the inventory process for Amazon sellers.

The thermal transfer label printer doesn’t have this issue. Its printed barcodes and labels can be stored for a long time, resistant to scratching, wear, and high temperatures. Remarkably, these label printers, when paired with different types of ribbons (wax, wax/resin, resin), offer strong adaptability for printing on various materials, such as synthetic paper, pearl paper, and silver paper.

Thermal transfer barcode label printer are seen in various industries like manufacturing, warehousing logistics, retail, and apparel, printing product labels, logistic labels, warehouse barcodes, and clothing care labels, meeting the high standards and diverse needs of different sectors.
